Best Destinations for Great Travel Deals Right Now

Looking for a great deal on travel? Of course, you are!

Right now there are several epic destinations that are particularly attractive right now due to a strong dollar. Suzy Strutner of the Huffington Post has several suggestions for where to go based on the Vox Vacation Index, which ranks the value of the dollar in 48 popular travel destinations. 

Number one on the list right now -- the United Kingdom. It’s never been a better time to head to London, see the Isle of Skye or check out the British countryside. 

Another win for the budget traveler: Tulum, Mexico. 

“Make a beeline for Tulum, where ancient ruins sit right on the warm Caribbean coast. Getting around Mexico is easy when some of the top attractions are natural wonders, from beaches to natural swimming holes,” writes Strutner. 

Argentina is another place that is inexpensive and awesome. 

“High-altitude vineyards take wine tasting to new heights, while stunning desert salt flats stay pleasantly tourist-free. In Buenos Aires, subway transportation, waterfront walks and snacks from fresh fruit stands make exploring especially cheap,” says Strutner. 

Take advantage of the strong dollar in Shanghai, too.

“The coastal city of Shanghai is home to a particularly stellar restaurant scene and a new Disney park. Daredevil travelers can try their hand at challenging mountain hikes and China’s dramatic glass bridges — if they’re in working order, that is,” she notes. 

These are just a few of the travel destinations that are even more affordable with the strong dollar. See more here
