How to pick the best travel destination for your next vacation

Read Time:3 Minute, 0 Second

For many people, choosing their next travel destination comes down to two things—desire and budget. If you have your heart set on visiting Rome, but you don’t have the money to afford it, you’re going to have to look elsewhere, right? The good news is that there are plenty of amazing travel destinations that won’t break the bank—or leave you with a bunch of credit card debt after your trip.

What are you looking for?

Most people are looking for one of three things: A place with beautiful beaches, a country with interesting history or unique culture, or somewhere exciting that will give them adrenaline rushes. If you’re not sure what you want in your travels yet, think about what kind of experiences would be most enjoyable for you and read our suggestions below. The world is full of great places, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for it can be difficult to find it!

Consider cost

Expenses can add up very quickly, so when choosing a destination for your next trip, it’s important to consider cost. If you have a limited budget or prefer more affordable destinations, look at our list of 10 of the cheapest places to visit around the world. Our rankings are based on data from World Bank and Numbeo.

Consider convenience

We’ve already gone over how important it is to do some research when choosing a location, but you don’t want to get so immersed in logistics that you miss out on what matters most—enjoying yourself. Be sure you take into account how much time it will take you to get there, where you can sleep once you arrive and whether your trip will require a passport or vaccinations. These factors might put a trip out of reach if they make it inconvenient.

Consider experience level

When planning a trip, you have a lot of factors to consider. There’s selecting which region of the world is most ideal for your experience level and activity preferences. You also need to decide what part of that region will suit you best; it’s far better (and cheaper) to research destinations before you get there. Knowing how long you want to spend away and how much time, energy, and money are at your disposal will help narrow down exactly where in that region you want to visit.

Research nearby attractions

Traveling is a rich way to learn about a culture, but it’s also important to research nearby attractions before you go. If you know there are good restaurants or museums in a city that may interest you, then consider booking those as well. The more things on your itinerary, the better.

Take one thing off your bucket list

In some ways, when it comes to life goals and bucket lists, we should take them one thing at a time. Instead of saying, I want to be rich and famous, consider trying out one new activity you never thought you’d try. The freedom that comes with accomplishing small tasks like these has a way of opening up whole new worlds in your life.

Plan as early as possible

This may seem obvious, but it’s an easy mistake to make. It’s tempting to book a hotel and plan day trips as you go, but planning early allows you time (and space) to do research—and get good deals. Websites like ITA Matrix allow you to search discount flights and find cheap hotels while you still have time on your hands.
