The World on a Dime

The top 10 international travel destinations considered to provide the best value.

Lower spending is creating headaches for the travel industry and opportunities for consumers as deals proliferate. In its annual Travel Trends survey, Minneapolis-based Travel Leaders asked its agents, managers and owners nationwide to recommend the best values outside the U.S. Mexico and the Caribbean led the pack, along with cruises. The travel firm said clients have been booking later than last year and are reducing the length of trips. Travel Trends also asked staffers to list how leisure travelers are saving money. Among the most frequent responses: flexibility on dates; staying at all-inclusive destinations; using frequent flyer miles; taking a cruise, and booking only if there is a promotion or deal.
