Whether the winter blues are kicking in or you're just in dire need of a holiday, Skyscanner just offered up some major travel inspiration.

That's because the flight comparison website has just unveiled the best value long-haul flight routes, based on cost per mile.

Topping the list is flights from London to Bali, where the 7765-mile journey averages out at £0.1066 (based on an average flight price of £828).

The Indonesian island also proved to offer the most bang for your buck if you're flying from Manchester, which worked out as the third best value route. (You can see the full list below).

Of course it's good news for those who've always wanted to see some of the amazing sights of Bali.

It's worth noting that these aren't necessarily the cheapest long-haul destinations on offer, but they are offering the best value at cost per mile.

"It was great to see popular destinations such as Bali, Auckland and Manila appearing more than once.

"There are also many flight tips available to help travellers find the best flight deals, for example, setting price alerts, considering departing from a different airport nearby and just changing their departure day slightly can all help save money."
