With the Australian dollar weakening to almost US$0.73 today and expected to get weaker, there’s never been a better time to explore the discounted domestic holidays advertised in newspapers and on the Internet.
However, for some reason, the cost of living is still so high domestically, that its still cheaper to go overseas than to holiday here!
The airlines, hotels and travel companies all around the world want business and fast. And a really good way for them to target customers looking for a good deal is to advertise their special offers on Twitter.
You can follow Wotif (last-minute hotels discounted online), Virgin, Qantas, and most travel companies on Twitter for “Twitter only” specials. Also, if you simply browse newspapers or search online there are amazing offers available to the US, Thailand, Fiji and many other wonderful locations.
You deserve a break and now is as good a time as any to look out for something fun. Just think, once the airfare and accommodation package is paid, living costs are cheaper in many overseas countries than they are here.
Your say: What do you think, do you have any other ideas for holidays on a budget? Where would you most like to travel to?
