Destinations Where the US Dollar Goes Further for Travelers by Alexander Deutsch


If you want to save money on vacation, you have to know where to go.  Over the past year, some destinations have become a better value for US travelers, based both on the strength of the dollar compared to the local currency and overall affordability.

Which destinations will ultimately stretch your dollar? The top five are Turkey, Mexico, Kazakhstan, Nepal and Indonesia.  Overall affordability is “largely independent of exchange rate fluctuations and trends,” and that the length of stay is one of the most important factors in getting a great value. Many of these low-cost destinations are far from the U.S. so travel to and from can be expensive, and a longer stay makes it more worth it.
