    Bargain Travel to the United States of America

    With nearly 2 x US$ to every UK pound, travel to the USA right now is a very affordable option, especially if you have a lot of shopping to do. I went to New York, the weekend it snowed so much the airports were closed, a couple of years ago. Even then exchange rates were favourable, although not as favourable as now, and I was over the moon with my (extensive) purchases. I really can’t recommend it enough!

    If that’s not enough to persuade you then here are my other top ten reasons for going stateside on the hurry up:

    1. Did I mention to you that you every UK pound will buy you nearly 2 x US$?
    2. Flights, shopping and accommodation are not the only great deals you can expect. Car hire is also very affordable. Auto Europe currently has one week’s hire from just £82.60.
    3. There are 52 states in North America covering 3.79 million square miles (9.83 million km²), home to 300 million people – you will not be short of something to see or do!
    4. A recent ‘Open Skies’ agreement between the US and the EU heralds a new era where any airline can potentially fly to the US from any EU airport. Industry experts predict this will bring down flight costs, See more on the BBC website.
    5. If you are reading this then you can already speak the language (and read the road-signs).
    6. You can ‘chase life, love and the pursuit of happiness’ with a classic American road trip like a tour of the Canyon lands of the west, a scenic journey down California’s Pacific Coast Highway or cruise the iconic Route 66.
    7. You will not be hungry. Everything is big in America including food portions. However, contrary to popular myth, healthy food is easily available and very tasty too.
    8. The people are incredibly friendly and welcoming.
    9. It’s nearly the 4th July – Independence Day – which is big party time!
    10. New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Yellowstone National Park, Graceland . . .
