For the young wild and restless, sometimes travelling is more of a way of life than a hobby. Unfortunately, globetrotting comes at a price and the need to make tough decisions like travelling to locations that offer the best bang for your buck. The following is a list of five locations you can travel to even on last minute and are sure to get last minute deals of an all-inclusive package or a single booking.
Auckland, New Zealand
If you’re flying from the US, the only thing that you will find expensive at this travel destination is the fight ticket. In Auckland, you can get cheap hotels for as little as little as $17. You can travel to Auckland any time of the year, but notice that seasons in New Zealand are reversed. And summer in the US is winter in New Zealand and so forth. It’s difficult to get last minute deals between December and February since these are Auckland’s peak travel seasons and hotel deals and airfare prices are hikes because of huge crowds.
Mexico is always a perfect destination for young travellers on a budget. The diversity in destination locations range from the sands of Puerto Vallarta, to Sayulita the beautiful city, to the metropolitan Mexico City. In Mexico you will be treated to beautiful beaches, intense cultural attractions and a bustling nightlife. What’s more, it’s easy to get an affordable hotel in most cities in Mexico and easy to secure last min rooms as long as it is not the peak season for travels.
The ultimate travel destination for young restless travellers on a budget is Arizona. If you’re a US citizen, you will save money on the passport. There are quality accommodation options in Arizona and this is lowered as much as by twenty to thirty percent during off-peak seasons. Moreover, you can search for the best travel packages online so that you can save on flight.
If you don’t have Thailand at the top of your bucket list, then you should reconsider that list. Thailand is amongst the cheapest cities for tourists with accommodation as cheap as 20$ per night. And it’s not just about the good last minute deals, Bangkok also offers multiple avenues for exploration and adventure including floating markets, cycling in the Bang Krachao Gardens, visiting the beautiful Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) and experiencing the Thai Massage among others.
Cuba is a favorite travel destination for most travel junkies. The excitement for Americans to travel to Cuba rolled off once the country opened its borders to the US after decades of restriction. Cuba is an excellent destination for young tourists because it doesn’t come with the usual expectations. The usual cell phones, credit cards, and junk foods are all things you get to leave behind to enjoy a beautiful once in a lifetime vacation in Cuba. One thing about this destination is that your bargaining power will determine how much you can save on most offers. It’s easy to get last minute deals but you have to have the cash at hand and it the Cuban currency. There’s no secret to finding cheap last minute packages. All you need is a trustworthy travel agent who can organize everything.
