Cheapflights.com is making it mighty hard not to ditch the normal family Thanksgiving dinner for a trip to amazing parts of the world with a list of some heavily discounted destinations.
We get it. There is nothing more intoxicating than the allure of that roast turkey smell wafting all over the house on that very special Thursday; but really, you are just going to feel like a bloated whale as you writhe in pain on the floor right after the meal anyway.
Plus, do you really want to sit down and hear an onslaught of opinions on Trump, Clinton or what Negan did to poor, well, you know?
The solution is quite simple. Take a trip thanks to some awesome savings. The website recently unveiled its “Thanksgiving Getaways,” which is a list of 11 destinations around the world that are currently offering great deals compared to this time last year, adding: “Those looking to fly out on Thursday, Nov. 24 – Thanksgiving Day – and return on Monday, Nov. 28, are finding double-digit savings over airfares from last year to many top spots.”
