Let your currency decide where you travel to

It’s no secret that the South African Rand is pretty weak against the Dollar, Pound and Euro. This makes saving up for travelling a long process which includes planning ahead and booking plane tickets months in advance. There is however another option – simply choose a country where your currency is stronger.

Before you get too excited be sure to also check out the cost of living for each country to give an idea of how much money you will need – I like using numbeo.com. Currently the cheapest holiday destinations include: Hungary, Croatia, India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Czech Republic. So instead of pining for Paris go somewhere you never thought of going.

Below is a list of exchange rates and there are some countries definitely worth a visit.
