These 10 cheap countries for your summer vacation
You haven’t decided anything for your holidays yet? A study by the Skyscanner travel comparator has established a top 10 of the most economical destinations for the summer. Round trips around 900 euros for Vietnam, or even 600 euros for India… this brief overview will give you some ideas.
To establish this ranking, Skyscanner took into account several criteria: the price of a round trip in economy class from France to the country mentioned, all airports combined, in July and August 2018. Fares that we have updated, and which are still in effect if you book your trip today. In addition to flights, the ranking also takes into account the average price of a night in a double room, in one of the most popular 3-star hotels in the capital of each country (booking for a week between the 1st and the August 7, 2018 taken into account). Finally, to be as precise as possible, this hit parade is based on data from the Pintprice sites, which lists the price of pints of beer around the world, and statistics on the cost of living from Numbeo (taxi prices, average price of a meal, etc.).
Eastern Europe, South America, Asia… Discover in this slideshow the 10 most economical destinations for your summer holidays.
