Use This Simple Planning Tip To Maximize Your Travel Budget
If you're traveling on a budget, this no-brainer money tip can make your trip easier to afford: Choose destinations where your country's currency will go further.
If you'll be converting your money to another currency on vacation, research the exchange rate in advance and know how much food, transportation, and other necessities cost.
Keep in mind that exchange rates are always fluctuating due to multiple factors. Check recent exchange rates and how they stack up to the rates in previous years.
If you see that one dollar equals more of another country's currency now than usual, this could be your chance to experience that destination at a fraction of the typical cost.
Some of our top picks for destinations where the dollar goes further include Costa Rica, Hungary, Indonesia, Tunisia, and Portugal. Be sure not to visit during local holidays.
