Spring break and summer travel planning are in full swing for globetrotters itching to leave behind the sleepy winter months. Although it’s tempting to book a spontaneous trip to that Instagram-worthy locale on your bucket list, chances are you’ll come back from those top travel destinations with your pockets empty — or worse, trapped in debt. That’s why GOBankingRates put together a list of 20 hot destinations that you can visit for less than $100 per day.
These cheap vacation spots boast inexpensive hotels, food and local transportation, along with all the sightseeing and experiences you could want. Vacationing on a budget is easy if you’re in the know about the best cheap places to travel this year.
Methodology: GOBankingRates analyzed 350 cities around the globe to find 20 hot destinations where you can visit for less than $100 a day. For each of the 350 cities, GOBankingRates found average nightly hotel costs from Hotels.com based on three-star hotels in the city center during the week of Sept. 7 to Sept. 14, 2019. Then, the costs of a three-course meal for one, an inexpensive meal for one and four local transportation tickets were found. All of those factors were added together to determine a daily sum for each city. Round-trip flight costs from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York for the week of Sept. 7 to Sept. 14, 2019, were included because JFK offers the greatest number of international flights.
