For  a day, you can explore these 34 budget-friendly destinations

Travelling outside Canada adds up fast. From the cost of plane tickets to rising fees, international travel can get expensive. However, where you go can certainly affect your budget.

According to a guide by Flytrippers, a Quebec-based flight deal website, travelling can be affordable depending on the destination.

“The cheapest countries to travel to are also wonderful destinations, allowing you to travel for less, for longer, or in luxury,” states co-founder Andrew D’Amours. “It’s so sad that so many people think that travel is necessarily expensive because it’s just not true.”

The company compiled a list of 34 affordable countries to travel to where you can make the most of your vacation for just $40 a day.

D’Amours said that in Brazil, he scored Taylor Swift tickets for just $31, while in Toronto, the cheapest tickets were $200 for nosebleed seats.

“The same simple principle obviously applies to hotels, meals, activities, EVERYTHING: the same quality is much cheaper if you simply choose affordable countries,” he said.

And these countries have much to offer too, from cities rich in culture to beaches and nature.
