Everything is greener in spring, including your wallet if you choose your travel destination wisely. Squeezing in a vacation before the onslaught of summer means fewer crowds and lower prices—a winning combination by any standard. This spring, sip a coconut cocktail under a palm tree or explore one of Europe’s oldest wine regions.

I’ve monitored trends, industry news, and sale patterns to point you in the direction of places that offer the best bargain values for the coming season. Below you’ll find examples of deals currently available for spring trips. Like all deals, these are sure to expire; however, a little research on your part can yield similar results when you’re ready to book.

We hand-pick everything we recommend and select items through testing and reviews. Some products are sent to us free of charge with no incentive to offer a favorable review. We offer our unbiased opinions and do not accept compensation to review products. All items are in stock and prices are accurate at the time of publication.
