If you find yourself holiday-less at this point it time, you may be weeping in despair. You’re envisioning that your favourite holiday destination is booked solid and you’ll stand no chance of vacationing where you have (in your mind) planned where you would find yourself. That beach. That city. That resort. We empathize with you. Better luck next time?
But, while your ideal travel spot may no longer be feasible, what do you think might happen if you turn your travel expectations around? That is, search for destinations that are still available for you? There are so many choices waiting for you. So, put yourself in “last minute” mode and chase the deals, rather than the locations.
Exploring unusual travel destinations allows you to broaden your horizons and discover new places that you may not have considered before. It opens up a world of possibilities and introduces you to unique cultures, landscapes, and experiences that can be incredibly enriching.
Unusual travel destinations often offer unique experiences that can create lasting memories. By exploring lesser-known places, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in local traditions, taste authentic cuisine, interact with friendly locals, and engage in activities that might be unavailable in more popular tourist destinations.
One of our favourite affiliate friends, Going (formerly Scott’s Cheap Travel) tell us this all the time: the more flexible you can be, the less you’ll pay, and this is especially true during peak travel times like summer.
For example, if you have to fly to Barcelona on August 1, you will almost certainly pay more than someone who just wants to get to Europe anytime this summer. For example. Going have good news, though. There are some great destinations you can still book for a reasonable—or even downright amazing—price.
Just in the last week or so, they’ve sent members alerts for roundtrip fares from San Francisco to Hawaii for $168 nonstop, Newark to the Bahamas for $272 nonstop, Chicago to Fort Lauderdale for $162 nonstop, and even Seattle to Frankfurt in business class for $2,380 nonstop—all for travel this summer.
