Itching to welcome 2016 in another city? There’s no reason why you can’t. Here are three tips that will help you kick off a new year on a high.
#1 Fly at off-peak hours
Skip the countdown and fly on December 30 or January 2. That way you don’t have to worry about recovering in time from hangovers and food binges.
#2 Go off the beaten path
The whole world is trying to get to hotspots like New York for the ball drop, or Sydney for the fireworks. Instead of jostling alongside them, consider Bali for a rejuvenating spa indulgence or heritage-rich Colombo where you can take in idyllic landscapes and shop at street markets.
#3 Select your destinations based on great deals
Flash sales, credit card promotions and two-to-fly deals can help you plan where to go, and take you to unexpected and exciting new places. Check for them regularly and snap them up. Sites like ZUJI, Expedia or lastminute.com offer airfare and hotel bundles that can save you quite a bit of cash, so don’t rule that option out. Some cost as low as $250.
