Want to hit the road without breaking the bank? Kayak, one of the world's leading travel search engines, shared with Travel + Leisure a list of the cheapest places to travel this year.

To determine the most wallet-friendly destinations, Kayak considered searches for flights from July 2022 through November 2022 for travel in 2023. It then took into account the top 100 most-clicked destinations with the lowest average flight and hotel prices, excluding outliers based on certain criteria such as travel restrictions and security concerns. Prices are on average.

Traveling the world doesn’t have to be out of reach. Take a smart and savvy approach to visit desirable destinations at (relatively) affordable price points.


San Antonio, Texas

It seems like everything really is bigger in Texas, including your potential savings. Plan to spend about $658 for a flight and hotel, and don’t worry about setting aside too much additional cash because highlights like the San Antonio River Walk and Brackenridge Park are totally free. Don't leave without exploring the Alamo, either — touring the Alamo Church is also free, but does require a timed entry reservation.
