Think twice before buying your holiday clothes from Zara

If you’re heading to Spain this summer and might get some of your holiday clothes from Zara, you might be better off waiting until you’re over there.

The Spanish company sells items much cheaper over there – whether it’s women’s, men’s or kids’ clothes.

You can search prices in English on their Spanish website to get an idea of how much you’d save.

We found big potential savings on just about every item we looked at – and the savings are even bigger than usual, with the pound reaching a two-year high against the euro on Wednesday.

For example, this white mini dress with ruffled hem is €27.95 in Spain but £32.99 (or €38.74).

A black dress described as “flowing voluminous” is €29.95 over there, but £35.99 (€42.27) in the UK.

These men’s “balloon fit” jeans are €35.95 in Spain, but £45.99 (€54.01) in the UK.

A double-breasted blazer suit and trousers is €129.9 in Spain, but in the UK you’d pay £158.99 (€186.72).

Finally, a ruffled gingham kids’ jumpsuit is €22.95 compared with £25.99 (€30.52).

Martin Lewis first highlighted these potential savings in 2015 when he wrote: “This isn’t just about Zara similar pricing structures apply for other members of the same group, Massimo Dutti, Pull & Bear and Uterqüe.”

A Zara spokesperson told the Money blog: “Zara’s fashion offer is the same in the over 200 markets where it is available: quality, well-designed products at compelling prices.

“These prices do vary between markets due to a number of factors which include shipping costs and exchange rates.”
