Mattawa, Ontario

Budapest, Hungary

The cost of living in the extraordinary city of Budapest is actually quite low. Airbnb’s and hostels are affordable, dining out is inexpensive, and the nightlife won’t burn a hole in your wallet. It’s not impossible to spend $30-$45 CAD per day without limiting what you do! The only thing you will need to splurge on are the baths which are of course, a must-see in Budapest.

San Diego, California

Surprisingly enough, flights from San Diego can often be cheaper than flying to LAX or Las Vegas while still giving you the chance to explore a completely different part of California. See the palm trees and feel the salty air at this beach-side city.

Portland, Oregon

Only a few hours drive from British Columbia, Portland is an underrated American city that will satisfy your Instagram aesthetic by day, while exploring the bar scene by night. Add a trip within your trip by renting a car for the day and driving to Seattle.

Havana, Cuba

Instead of a classic spring break beach-side resort in Cuba, try out the country’s capital, Havana! Explore the city’s coffee culture, colourful buildings and antique cars while you dance your heart out at night. Plus, it’s only a three-hour flight from most major Eastern Canadian cities.

Lisbon, Portugal

How about Portugal? With TAP Air Portugal, you can fly to Lisbon for under $550 round-trip! To add to that, Lisbon is a city where there’s a lot to explore, a lot of different foods to taste, with a rich history by the sea-side.

Dublin, Ireland

Satisfy your cravings for delicious beer and classic European nightlife in Dublin. With Iceland Air or WOW Air, you can fly to Dublin at a low cost, stay at one of its many youthful hostels and learn about the city while drinking a pint of fine Irish beer. Don’t forget to visit the Guinness Brewery!
