Spring Holiday Hotspots

“I can’t believe it’s September already!” 

Words dominating office water cooler chat and café conversation right across the country at the moment.

The good news is that summer days are just around the corner, which means it is time to take that tattered yearly calendar down from the fridge and start mapping your next overseas adventure.

Yes – I hear what you’re thinking (“we can’t afford it”) but with a little stretching of the budget and research you CAN.

Holiday time equals good medicine so it’s important for everybody’s mind, body and soul that we take the time (to make the time) to getaway and relax.

Besides, you’ve worked hard all year so you deserve it.  Now stop feeling guilty already!

To ensure you don’t break the bank to fund your next GREAT escape, we’ve done all the leg work for you to seek out the best value destinations.

Okay FiftyUps it’s time to pack your passports and slap on the sunscreen because we are going on vacation!

And we don’t mean a dodgy Griswold family version, either!

FiftyUp’s Top 4 holiday hotspots this season

1. Thailand - Save more than a third on flights by taking off in spring. It's affordable, home to the world's best beaches and is still in the low season until the December school holidays start. Not to mention the cheap shopping, delicious food and to-die-for massages!

2. Europe – Great weather, cheaper airfares and accommodation, and fewer crowds make Europe an ideal travel destination in spring particularly Mediterranean marvels including Greece, Spain, Italy, Croatia and Malta. It might not be peak season but the party atmosphere and endless summer vibe continue long and hard with specials on cruises and sailing trips.

3. India – The spiritual wonder of the world, spring is a perfect period to soak up India’s rich colour and culture. Between the end of monsoon season and start of winter provides the ideal climate to enjoy the endless festivities like Diwali, the beautiful festival of lights, snake boat races and Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. Be sure to take in a live game a cricket like you’ve never experienced before.

4. USA – The sun still shines from Los Angeles to New York during spring. What’s more, off peak prices and the improved Aussie dollar mean you can really spoil yourself. Whether it’s hiking the Hollywood sign, sailing the San Francisco bay, losing yourself in Las Vegas shopping or strolling through Central Park, spring delights aplenty stateside.

Yep and there are some great spots in a country called Australia as well. The money spent in that country goes around and around that country and provides jobs for its inhabitants. Athough It is constantly eroded by GST and income tax even much of this is returned in various forms to those people.
