Las Vegas

Expedia deals

If you too are part lizard and thrive in warmer than warm temperatures, than perhaps a getaway to Vegas is in order this summer. And with prices this low (what, four nights + flight for less than $1000?), it’s hard to fight the temptation.

And if you can’t stand the heat… just make your way towards one of the many casinos or malls to cool down, which, in any case, will be within a 10-meter range from where you will be standing. That’s Vegas for you!

Fort Lauderdale

Expedia deals

Retiree capital, Fort Lauderdale? Nah, not anymore! The underrated seaside city has evolved from snowbird hotspot to a thriving destination  for young families, couples and groups of friends, where everyone is guaranteed a good time – especially when it involves flights to Fort Lauderdale Airport and four nights in a 4* hotel for less than $1200.

Whether you opt to cruise down the 165 miles of waterways by water-taxi or by visiting the city’s many art museums, there is no such thing as being bored in the Sunshine State.

Maui Island

Expedia deals

Who in their right mind would say no to a quick trip to Maui? With several deals under $1500, it’s hard to envision why anyone would say no to Hawaii’s “Magic Isle”.

With plenty of water-based activities and accessible adventures in the island’s lush forests, Maui is the perfect place for families. Terrific beaches, blue water, abundant marine life, volcanic Haleakalā National Park, quaint towns, scenic drives, you name it, Maui has it – what are you waiting for?

True, the pound to dollar rate has rarely given such little bang for our buck. But London in summertime is a magical sight to behold seeing as the sun doesn’t come out of its cover behind a thick gray cloud for any of the other 9 months of the year – so yes, it is worth the expense.

You can expect to pay just shy of $1500 for a four-day London getaway including flights, which isn’t bad at all compared to regular prices. Luckily for budget travellers, London is a very affordable city; cheap eateries are plentiful, Tower Bridge and Big Ben can be admired in all their glory along the riverbank and there is always a free comedy show somewhere in the city, even on Monday nights.


Expedia deals

Welcome to Chi-Town! The modern metropolis (the third largest in the United States), located on the shores of Lake Michigan, defines itself by its notorious love for fine arts, baseball and blues.

And for just $1000, Chicago can be yours for a long weekend. How about that? Shop ’til you drop on Magnificent Mile, play tourist at the silver bean in Millennium Park, catch a baseball game at the legendary Wrigley Field, marvel at the world-class pieces inside the Art Institute of Chicago – if the weather Gods feel generous, it might even get warm enough for you to sunbathe on Millennium Beach.


Expedia deals

How would you feel about a four-day getaway to Paris with views of the Eiffel Tower in the morning? Like the luckiest person in the world, that’s how!

Whichever arrondissement you pick for your trip, you won’t be disappointed. Between the must-do’s like the Louvre and Arc de Triomphe, and the little-known gems like Promenade Plantée and Montparnasse Village, Paris is full of surprises, every time.

Where will you be jetting off to for your summer holiday?
