With flights getting cheaper and cheaper, more and more destinations are opening up to the average Canadian that weren’t options even ten years ago. This revolution in travel has completely transformed the tourism industry. But with travel changing so quickly, it can be difficult to keep up! What are some of the cheapest summer vacations in 2019? Read on to find out!
While Southeast Asia has always been a favourite cheap destination for travellers, it hasn’t always been so cheap to get to. While flights to the Far East are still not anything to laugh at, they’re a far sight cheaper than they used to be, and considering the incredible value you can get for a vacation in countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia, a trip across the Pacific is a great economic choice to make that makes more sense the longer you plan to stay!
While not quite as cheap as Southeast Asia, Portugal is one of the most inexpensive countries in Europe, making it an excellent decision for anyone longing to hit up the Old World this summer. With gorgeous beaches, amazing wine regions, beautiful towns and cities, and a fascinating history to boot, Portugal offers incredible bang for buck in 2019.
Looking for an affordable European retreat but can’t stand the heat? Estonia is another incredible option when it comes to cheapest summer vacations. With the beautiful old town of Tallinn, a breathtaking countryside and Baltic beaches aplenty to explore, there are already plenty of reasons to visit the northernmost of the so-called Baltic States – the modest price tag is just the cherry on top.
Incredible cuisine, beautiful architecture, and a captivating history, Turkey is a unique holiday worth making at any time, but considering the current state of the Turkish lira, a trip to Anatolia in 2019 is definitely a much more affordable prospect than usual. Always dreamed of shopping in Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar? This summer is a great time to do it!
Looking for a cosmopolitan escape this summer but can’t quite swing the expense of Paris? With amazing food, architecture and history plus a plenitude of world-class museums that give the French capital a run for its money, Mexico City offers an excellent budget alternative.

With flights as low as $212 return from Toronto, getting there is incredibly inexpensive; and with great deals on accommodation on offer, Las Vegas really is a budget traveller’s dream! Not so much into the gambling? Take in a show, and check out the Grand Canyon!
