Sterling saw the starkest loss against the Brazilian real and Russian rouble, losing 28.4 per cent and 28 per cent respectively against the currencies, according to analysis by Lloyds Private Banking.
The pound also fell 27.9 per cent against the Icelandic krona.
By comparison, the pound lost 16.6 per cent against the US dollar and 14.39 per cent against the euro.
Sterling also notched up gains of 105.8 per cent against the Egyptian pound, 23 per cent against Mozambique's metrical and 0.3 per cent against the Turkish lira.
The pound is broadly unchanged against the Danish krone.
While the falls are bad news for holidaymakers, the weaker pound has helped support British companies selling overseas and the economy.
Manufacturing output reached a two and a half year high in December, as exports surged.
The cheaper pound has also given British tourism a boost.
Peter Reid, expatriate banking director at Lloyds Private Banking, said: "The pound's decline is bad news for British holidaymakers, with most destinations becoming more expensive in 2016.
"Many British expats will also be feeling the pinch; those with incomes in sterling such as pensioners are getting fewer pounds when converting their money.
"However, on the other end of the bargain, British expats living and working abroad and earning in foreign currencies are now getting more pounds for their money and they are seeing their spending power surge when they head back to the UK."
