Although traveling can be super expensive, with a little know-how, it doesn’t have to break the bank. Save by purchasing plane tickets on certain days of the week and choosing cities that are currently experiencing a drop in airfare prices. Kayak, the hotel and flight booking website, has crunched the numbers and found the top 10 destination deals. These are cities where the average cost of a round-trip ticket has come down in price in the past 12 months. For example, a round-trip flight to Hong Kong is 26% cheaper than it was in 2015.
David Solomito, Kayak’s director of brand marketing, told Money that the prices have dropped in each of the cities for differing reasons: “A stronger American dollar had made a trip to Hong Kong (and many of the destinations in Asia) cheaper. On the other hand, competition between low-cost carriers like Frontier and Spirit helped bring down the price of flights to Cleveland, which is No. 3 on the Kayak list, with the average flight there 22% cheaper than in 2015.” Wondering where bargain hunters will be visiting this year? Here are the 10 most affordable destinations to visit now.
