Wethrift, the US platform for finding discounts and cheap deals, wanted to find the ultimate list of the most affordable travel destinations for 2024. To come up with the winners, a range of normal holiday expenses were compared, including transport, tourist attraction fees, average prices of accommodation and meals. Keep in mind that flights or short-/long-haul travel options were not included, as these costs would differ greatly depending on your country of departure.

Here are all the criteria:

  • Public transport prices

  • Admission fees for attractions

  • Accommodation: average prices for hotels, guesthouses and Airbnb

  • Food: the prices of groceries and restaurant meals

  • Number of direct flights available

⚠️ Important: While it's interesting to know whether it's cheaper in Mongolia or Burkina Faso, you won't find the answer in these results. Wethrift chose to only compare the most popular travel destinations around the world.

💎 ... And if you're curious about who came last in the results, Florence takes this title, making it the most expensive destination.
