Why is traveling to places in Europe so cheap right now?
The US dollar has been trading higher than most other foreign currencies including the Euro and the Yen. This has presented big savings for US travelers using American Dollars to book out of country trips. A trip to France is almost 25% cheaper than it was last year. Changes in the value of currencies can have a negative impact on the revenue of multi-national businesses that conduct their sales in foreign jurisdictions, but present great opportunities for US travelers who love to see the world and take advantage of great deals.
