Time Your Trip Around Currency Fluctuations - The Cheap Way to Travel


Visitors: 297

Finding a cheap vacation spot abroad can be virtually impossible – everything seems more expensive these days, and vacations are no exception. So how do you find a bargain? One way is to plan your trip to a place that is experiencing currency woes against your home country’s currency.

Currencies fluctuate against each other constantly – it can be a sign of one country’s health just as it could be a sign of economic problems with another. But that needn’t affect your vacation – you don’t care about the interest rates or the employment statistics in Thailand, but investors do. The trick to getting a cheap vacation abroad is to pick a country that has a cheap currency at the time of your trip.

This lowers your costs in a number of ways – your money will be worth more when you get there. Hotels will be cheaper, and you’ll be able to pay for all the fun things you do on vacation for cheaper. There are plenty of places on the Internet you can watch currency prices at, and your travel agent will probably tell you if you ask.

The trick to being able to plan this sort of vacation is to be flexible until about a month out – currencies (usually) don’t swing that dramatically in that period of time, so pick a few potential places you’d like to go and choose relatively close to your planned departure date. This will let you get a trip someplace fun and still have money in your pocket to spend doing what you want on your vacation.
