When we were considering honeymoon destinations several years ago, Australia was a top contender…until we saw the price tag. Package deals for a 2-week vacation were around $20,000 (yes, twenty thousand!). Spending that much on a honeymoon was out of the question. We put the idea aside and chose a $6,000 Greece package instead. Last year, we went on our Greek honeymoon and had SUCH a great time! The trip really inspired Him to love travel as much as I do. So this year we started talking about a one-year anniversary trip. We were having trouble deciding where to go.
A few months ago, I started getting promotions for travel to Australia. The prices had dropped – a LOT. Airfare is about half the price due to the economy, and the Australian currency exchange rate is favorable right now too. So we made a decision to travel to Australia this fall! We’ll spend about $8,000 on two weeks, including airfare and some fun tours and nice hotels. It means we will have to delay the purchase of a home for a few more months, but we feel that it’s worth it. These prices might not happen again for a long time, and we’ve been talking about visiting Australia for three years already. We’re finally going, and we’re really excited.
Have you ever chosen a travel destination based on an airfare sale?
