10 International Travel Bargains


The good news for U.S. travelers who plan to venture abroad this year is that their dollars will go further.

You’ll benefit from the favorable exchange rates in euro-zone countries as soon as you hit the ground. The strong dollar will get you discounts of 20% to 30% off prices in recent years for food, train tickets, shows and more. A trip to Canada may not sound like the most exotic of vacations. But now that you can get more loonie for your buck—recently $1.26—it’s a good time to explore the country’s multiethnic flavors and diverse topography. It’s also a great time to jet down to South America.

Late August and September are good times to snag deals on airfare and hotels and to enjoy good weather while avoiding the tourist crush. For your South American adventures, you'll want to aim for the Southern Hemisphere's springtime, in September, October and November.

Here are 10 international destinations where the strong dollar is making travel remarkably affordable.
