We all wish life was one long holiday, but reality is a bit more grim than that. The truth is that not only do we not have the time for frequent holidays, but they can also be extremely expensive, even prohibitively so, at times. There was a time when that meant that not everyone could afford to go on holiday, but not anymore. Thankfully, there are now plenty of exotic, attractive travel destinations that allow you to enjoy a wonderful, inexpensive holiday. Money Saving Expert can even give you some tips of saving when travelling.
The destinations are chosen based on the average amount one would spend per day while on holiday, covering some basic costs, such as beer, a meal for two (three courses), coffee, suncream, a glass of wine, a coke, insect repellent, and a bottle of water. Let's take a look at some of these amazing places!
Marmaris, Turkey - £59 Is there anything more beautiful than the view of the sea in Turkey? You won't see that anywhere else, and especially not for this price! Turkey has become quite the coveted destination for beach holidays for people who are strapped for cash, and who wouldn't want to go there?
Hoi An, Vietnam - £65 Vietnam is one of those bucket list places that you simply have to see and experience at least once in a lifetime, and did you know that it won't cost you an arm and a leg? You can spend a typical day here for only £65, and that, my friend, is something to brag about.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic - £67 If you're after the typical sunny, beachy summer holiday, complete with palm trees, it's hard to beat Punta Cana. Not only is it gorgeous, but it comes out to only £67 per day for our chosen essentials. That leaves some money to play around with.
Porec, Croatia - £61 Perhaps less "exotic", but not any less beautiful, Croatia has a lot going for it, including some unbelievable and hard to beat prices. The architecture alone is a good enough reason to go and visit, not to mention the blue skies and seas, and for only £61 a day!
Bali, Indonesia - £67 When your key word is "exotic", then your destination is Bali. Did you ever dream of being able to travel to Bali on a budget? Who knew? It's going to be a once in a lifetime experience with the beauty of the ocean, gorgeous beaches, and a culture you can't wait to get to know.
Costa del Sol, Spain - £58 Spain is always a safe bet when it comes to holidays, and I bet you've already been there before. If you have, you know it's because it offers all of your "exotic vacation" needs at an affordable price, so that you can enjoy yourself year after year.
Paphos, Cyprus - £54 If you've been overlooking Cyprus as a holiday destination, then you are wrong to do so, my friend. Cyprus will offer you some of the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen, and a nice view of the water sparkling in the sun. It doesn't hurt that it's affordable, as well.
Algarve, Portugal - £60 The sight to behold here is breathtaking, and the sandy beaches are straight out of a film. You won't believe that all of this can be enjoyed for just £60. Portugal also has the advantage of having a rich culture to explore and its cities are incredibly beautiful and historic, so you don't only get a beach holiday, but also a city break.
All in all, holiday destinations abound, but if they're not in your price range, then that's a problem. Going on holiday is extremely expensive, but we all need a break from time to time. It may seem like a fantasy, but it's real - here are 8 of the best travel destinations that you can enjoy on the cheap. You can enjoy a day on holiday in any of these locations for under £70. That is quite a feat, considering the fact that it includes a three-course dinner for two. And before you leave, don't forget to check out The Money Advice Service guide on buying foreign currency.
