British tourists could end up paying twice as much for car hire depending where they go on holiday this summer.

Rental fees in Majorca are twice as high as those in Cyprus, a survey by Post Office Travel Money found.

Other popular spots where charges were particularly high were Faro in Portugal, Split in Croatia and Dublin.

Taking into account expenses such as satnav hire, additional-driver cover and petrol the pricest destination was the Norwegian capital Oslo where hiring a car for one week would set you back as much as £614.

The cheapest place to rent a car was in Larnaca in Cyprus where one-week hire was just £295.
