Cheap Overseas Holidays

If you think that travelling overseas is an out of reach dream, then you might be missing out on some incredible opportunities. From exotic beach getaways to bucket-list favourites, you can discover a world of wonder and culture on the other side of the globe without blowing your budget.

Despite the sluggish British economy and volatile pound, cheap overseas holidays are still a possibility. With a little research, you can find a package deal to an island paradise like the Cook Islands that includes return economy airfares to Rarotonga, transfers, accommodation at Sea Change Villas in a lagoon view villa with private plunge pool and two days car hire taken care of for just over $3000 per person.

The cheapest months to travel to Vietnam are February, March, April, May, August and September. With a total flight time of 6 hours and 7 minutes, you can explore this backpacker’s paradise for less than $329 per night and enjoy some of the best cuisine in Asia. Hoi An and Hanoi are some of the most popular destinations but you can do a complete North (Hanoi, Sa Pa, Ninh Binh) or Central (Da Nang, Hoi An) trip for even cheaper than this.

South Africa is another top-rated destination that’s affordable, with a lack of airline competition helping keep travel costs low. It’s a country of beautiful beaches, a vibrant culture and thrilling wildlife encounters but it’s also surprisingly affordable with $150 a day getting you a three or four star hotel (except in Cape Town), $50 for a three-course meal and $100 or less for a bungy jump.

Belize is an adventurer’s dream and a nature lover’s haven with the country’s biodiverse biodiversity and beautiful coral reefs. It’s also home to the Great Blue Hole, a scuba diver’s ultimate bucket list experience. A tour to the island of Caye Caulker is cheap, too, costing only AU$90.

Peru has the hallmarks of a spectacular holiday, including awe-inspiring natural beauty and surfable coastlines. But a recent surge in popularity has pushed prices up. That’s why Jelencovich suggests Ecuador instead.

It’s no secret that Bali is a top honeymoon and romantic destination but it’s not as expensive as you might think. It’s also a great place to visit with friends or family.

A trip to Singapore can be surprisingly cheap. This global city has a lot to offer, from an amazing food scene – the stars of Crazy Rich Asians would love it here – to some beautiful parks and gardens and world class shopping experiences. And the flight is a short 5.5 hours from Melbourne.
