Thrifty Travel Destinations for 2018

As 2017 already ended, most of us are already thinking about the holidays we want to take in 2018. Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, has created a pricing calendar for the year, to help travellers of all budgets find the best value-for-money destination for each month of the year.

To form these recommendations, Booking.com first looked at the average price per night of 3, 4 and 5-star accommodations in the most popular global cities. Then, to determine which cities to recommend for which month, they looked at the yearly overview of pricing fluctuations to determine the best weeks to stay in the chosen destinations.

The result? A perfectly-priced itinerary of places to check off your travel bucket-list for 2018.
