Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Looking for a cool city trip that won’t burden your pocket? Consider Toronto. Flight prices are down compared with last year. Summer weather reaches around the 80s and there’s a lot to explore in the big city. Spend some time in the Distillery District for a historic and extensive area home to some of the city’s best bars, cafes and art galleries. And don’t think the urban stretch means you can’t hit the beach.

Denver, Colorado

Not only are flight prices to Denver down compared with last year, but our data shows that it’s also one of the cheapest flights to take this summer. With hot summers that bring temps around 80s and low humidity, the weather is pretty close to summer perfection and the city boasts tons of things to do. In the month of June you can enjoy Denver PrideFest and the Cherry Blossom Festival, while July brings the Denver International Wine Festival and the Denver County Fair.

Austin, Texas

Flight prices to this hip Texas city are down compared with last year, meaning if you’ve been itching to see it for yourself, now may just be the time. There’s no shortage of seasonal events like the Austin Ice Cream Festival in June, Hot Summer Nights and Austin Pride Week in August. You can also relax at Barton Springs Pool, a three-acre, spring-fed outdoor oasis. There are also plenty of places to grab a bite. Anchorage, Alaska

If Alaska is on your travel list, this summer is the time to go. With the addition of new flight routes from a low-cost airline, we’re seeing prices down compared with pre Covid situation. Summers in Alaska are mild and dry with temperatures that can reach around 60s. Take a cruise from Seward to a stealthy look of glaciers, rent a bike and ride through the scenic 11-mile Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and when you’ve worked up an appetite, tuck into some local cuisine.

Kingston, Jamaica

If you need a reason to plan a trip to Jamaica – which you probably don’t – we have it. Despite the low season in Jamaica there’s plenty to do and you’ll get to enjoy it all without the high season crowds. Grab top restaurants that are usually hard to get, enjoy the ideal tee time and easily find a prime spot on the beach.

New Orleans, Louisiana

While summer is the offseason in New Orleans with weather that can be hot and rainy, you’ll enjoy a June trip. Traveling in the off-season also means fewer crowds on perennially packed Bourbon Street. Take advantage of this by heading to Cafe du Monde for a cup of chicory coffee and their famous beignets.

Nashville, Tennessee

Summer flight prices to Nashville will be music to your ears. But that’s only one of the reasons why Music City should be on your radar. Summer brings some of the city’s biggest outdoor festivals. From a country music festival with plenty of big names to the area’s popular annual music and arts festival. The city is known for its barbeque, so if you’re looking to partake there are plenty of options.

Krakow, Poland

If you’ve already done all the major European hotspots and want to get a bit more off the beaten path – or if you’re into Gothic and medieval architecture – Krakow could be the perfect choice for summer. Wandering through the city’s Old Town will bring plenty of opportunities for photo ops, for Gothic spires to cobblestone streets. When you get thirsty, you’ll also be happy to know the city’s beer is very reasonably priced. Milan, Italy

Summer in Italy is as spectacular as it sounds, and with flight prices to Milan down, it’s a savings-savvy time to see it for yourself. Visit some of the city’s impressive museums – many of which won’t set you back. The Museo Archeologico hosts artifacts from the Roman, Etruscan, and Greek eras, and it’s housed in a 9th-century monastery which is worth the trip alone. While the food will certainly be the main attraction, you don’t have to spend a lot on a fantastic slice of pizza.

Bogota, Colombia

Being close to the equator, Bogota has pretty consistently pleasant weather year round. Art and culture lovers should be sure to spend some time exploring the city’s museums like Museo del Oro – the Gold Museum – or Museo de Botero, which features the work of one of Colombia’s most famous artists. Or, simply just stroll around the city and admire its impressive collection of street art.
