If you neglect to factor the dollar’s exchange rate on your travel budget this summer, you can be in for the shock of a lifetime. Think about the airfare, cost of hotel rooms, food and everything else you might buy while traveling, that can be a lot higher than you would expect. And this is more so if you’re heading to Europe.
That’s why, going to where the dollar remains strong is a better option. Places like the Caribbean will still make your dollars go far. Or maybe the Americas such as Panama, Guatamela and El Salvador where they are already “dollarized”. Asian destinations are still a good choice too.
If you can’t defer your dream of snorkeling in Australia’s Great Barrier reef, or touring the countryside of England, or savoring that good Italian food in Italy, of course, be prepared to pay a high price. Some may even say, life is short, you’ll never know what happens next. Well, if you’re thinking this way like me, going to your desired travel destination now, and not next year is indeed the best time regardless of cost.
Wherever you’re thinking about going this summer, be sure to check the value of the local currency before you book any trip abroad. Hey, if you think it’s not feasible, remember, there’s a lot of beautiful places to see right here at home, in our dear US of A.
