Travel: 10 Destinations Where Your Dollar Goes the Furthest

Travelling can be expensive. With Flights, Food, and the cost of Accommodations, you’re always looking for tips on how to save when abroad… And with the Canadian dollar struggling to keep up internationally, budgeting’s even more important. A Loonie will get you 63 cents in Europe, 72 cents in the United States, and half a British Pound right now.

Even if you’ve won something in our Lottery – say, one of our terrific Travel gift certificates – you’re still going to want to know where in the world your dollars goes the furthest.

Says Rishi Modi of travel website Next Departure, in an interview with The Huffington Post: “Canadians shouldn’t feel discouraged and feel the need to put their vacation plans on hold or cancel them… Instead, take this opportunity to explore budget friendly destinations where our dollar is strong without breaking the bank.”

The best way to cut your costs? Save money on the flight, said Modi, and avoid travelling during the summer: “Avoid overcrowded tourist attractions, extreme hot weather, overpriced airfare and accommodations by travelling during off-peak season.”

Next Departure provided the news outlet with a list of the 10 Best Destinations for your Canadian Budget, which we’ve displayed below:

Portugal

For nearly a decade now, Portugal has emerged as one of Europe’s most beautiful, oldest, and CHEAP destinations. It’s also not as flocked-to as Paris, Italy, or England, meaning crowds are thinner and your dollar goes further.

Thailand

Backpackers love Southeast Asia for a reason – compared to North America or Europe, food, hotels, and transportation cost a fraction of what you’re used to. You can vacation in luxury and keep a little left for yourself…

The United States

This one sounds silly. After all, it’s the rise of the American dollar that’s been gauging Canadians the most. But the U.S. has so many destinations aside from the obvious ones – Las Vegas, Hawaii, and New York, especially – and they know how to sell a good discount.
