Kayak, the fare aggregator and travel metasearch engine has recently released its 2019 Travel Hacker Guide and a list of information ranging from the best times to book flights and hotels to trending destinations and budget-friendly trips. Don’t be under the impression that a “budget-friendly” trip would mean a sub-standard vacation, you’ll be delighted to find that these trips will still make you feel great and promise an experience like no other.
In order to compile these destinations, Kayak has analysed over 1.5 billion annual travel searches and took into consideration flight and hotel prices to narrow down on the top cities to visit on a budget this year. Denver, Colorado topped the list this year.
According to the research done by Kayak, travels and stays in Denver this 2019 may be approximately 55% less expensive than what the average trip might have cost in 2018. During your stay in the city, Kayak recommends that you can browse through exhibits at MCA Denver (tickets will only cost you US$8 each). Make the most out of your trip by chilling out at the rooftop cafe and take in the city views for free. In order to secure the best deal, it is recommended that travellers book their flights approximately a month in advance. When it comes to accomodations, consider spending a few nights at the Hilton Denver City Center which is available at an attractive price and has a superb 8.7 rating.
Alternatively, consider visiting Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, where travellers will most likely save up to 54% on trips here. Budget-friendly activities include spending time at the beach (which is free) or perhaps taking a hike at Myrtle Beach State Park which will only cost you US$5 for admission.
Other destinations on the list include Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Boston, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Houston and Fort Myers.
