MONTREAL, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine paying $400 per night for the kind of accommodations you'd pay thousands more for in a similar-looking, but slightly different point on the map. Do you know where you can get the most for your money during these wobbly times in finance?
Economic confidence is at a low, but travelers with a little savvy can still get a great deal on vacations if they know where to look. There are places where the value of the US dollar is still relatively high and others where prices are so low that it doesn't matter anyway. Combine the two and it's a match made in holiday heaven.
Luxury Retreats, http://www.luxuryretreats.com/, the world leader in high-end villa rentals worldwide, offers several destinations that fit the bill for value but are still exotic and more than worth a look this year.
"Now is a great time to explore destinations that you never would have otherwise," said Ben Tuff, Luxury Retreats Director of Marketing, "places like Mexico or Bali where, if you can get there with reasonable airfare, you can live like royalty."
These are just a few of the good value for dollar destinations where vacation rentals are available too:
- Mexico: There are great deals to be had even on beachfront properties, and the local services - like private chefs - and activities are very affordable.
- Bali: Beautiful estates comparable to the cost of a tiny condo in a place like Barbados. Stock your fridge full of delicious local produce for just a few dollars.
- Caribbean: Spending US dollars in the US Virgin Islands certainly helps ease the currency squeeze, especially when you have many villa options to choose from, as is the case in St. Thomas and St. John.
- United States: If all else fails, stay home. But staying in the US can still mean a great vacation, whether you are looking for sun or ski. For the latter, try Colorado and the former, California.
