Tips / Travel

With each New Year comes a fresh list of low-cost destinations to visit. These not-as-popular locales draw budget travelers thanks to inexpensive flights and accommodations, enticing food cultures and free activities. Here are the latest spots that won’t drain your 2018 travel budget.


Aside from the obvious affordability of Mexico thanks to its proximity to the States, our neighbor to the south also offers a plethora of reasonable beachside resorts in towns like Cabo San Lucas.


Despite the exotic draw of Mexico, highlighted by its warm, sunny beaches, Canada should not be ruled out as a just-as-exciting option. The Canadian dollar is exercising excellent value against U.S. currency, meaning hotel rates dropped and ski and other adventure excursions are loads cheaper than similar activities in the States.


Flights from the East Coast to this Western European country are shockingly low and, once on land, the cities of Porto and Lisbon offer healthy doses of culture at fair prices.


Travel restrictions for Americans aside, Cuba is an extremely inexpensive vacation destination for what you get out of the country. With increased competition among airlines, flights to the land of mojitos, cigars and colorful street art are modest.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
