Topping the charts with the hottest February temperatures is Thailand.
Heat highs soar to 33 degrees during the winter month, perfect for sunshine lovers, but with a price tag to match.
A 2-week al inclusive holiday will cost around £2,080 per person.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t the hottest country that cost the most.
The most costly destination is St Lucia, with a 2-week all-inclusive trip averaging £3,271 per person.
Nestled in the West Indies, in the eastern Caribbean Sea, St Lucia offers year-round sun, golden beaches and tranquil oceans.
Mexico and Dubai came in second and third place, respectively, for the most expensive winter sun destinations to make the list.
Dubai, with a daily temperature of 24 degrees throughout February, was found to cost £2,143 per person.
Meanwhile Mexico, with a toasty average of 29 degrees – matching St Lucia – could cost around £2,615 per person.
Ian Crawford of Holiday Hypermarket says: “February is the UK’s coldest month and so we wanted to give people looking for guaranteed sunshine a really easy way of comparing the merits of different destinations.
“At this time of year warm weather is the most important factor for many holidaymakers, and our research goes to show that by looking beyond the headline price travellers can get even more sun for the money they spend, and sometimes it pays to travel further.”
