It’s that time of year again… Tax Time! While it can be a dreaded time of the year for some people, if you’re an avid traveler who is receiving a tax refund, we’ve got some fun ideas on ways you can spend it! Based on a recent poll, travel agents at Vacation’s parent company, Travel Leaders Group, indicated that cruises and travel abroad are clients’ most popular picks.
Explore Alaska's Jaw-Dropping Landscape on a Cruise
Alaska cruises ranked as the top domestic U.S. vacation in a recent Travel Leaders Group Travel Trends survey. In fact, one of our expert travel agents can help you plan the ultimate Alaska experience on a seven day-cruise with a four-night land tour that includes two of Alaska’s most popular attractions: pristine Glacier Bay National Park and picturesque Denali National park, home to North America’s tallest peak, Mt. McKinley! Don’t pass up the opportunity to embark on amazing experiences such as exploring Kenai Fjords National Park, dog-sledding in Denali National Park or relaxing with your new spouse in a hot tub on the deck of a cruise ship with a jaw-dropping view of must-see glaciers.
Experience Asia on an Exotic Cruise
Go ahead and splurge! Pack your bags for an awe-inspiring experience to visit Taiwan and Japan on a 14-day cruise, starting from Shanghai, China. Let a Vacation travel agent help you plan your cruise to include a visit to Naha, Taipei, Manila, and a final stop in Honk Kong. One of our expert travel agents highly recommends this region in Asia and raved about her unforgettable experience in Taiwan. We agree! For couples looking for a more land-based vacay, we recommend a romantic getaway or honeymoon to postcard perfect Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. You won’t regret it!
Plan a Beach Getaway to Mexico and the Caribbean
Yep, we’re all tired of the winter that won’t seem to end and so ready to embrace warmer climates. A relaxing vacation in Mexico or the Caribbean may be the solution for early filers who feel the tax refund burning a hole in their pocket. Plan a three-night getaway in May or June to Cancun, Mexico or Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Stay at an all-inclusive resort, like Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort, and enjoy the beach and outdoor activities such as windsurfing, kayaking and bodysurfing. According to our travel specialists, Cancun i s the perfect getaway destination for families, couples and adult groups. Why? Because the flight is often less compared to some U.S. destinations and it's an ideal travel destination for travelers who want a quick, all-inclusive getaway.
Set Your Sights on the South Pacific
Vacation’s expert travel agents are sending a growing number of travelers to Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and Fiji. For adventurous travelers, consider visiting Australia’s west coast for a tour from Perth to Broome Overland, where visitors are exposed to the region’s natural wonders and culture. Go spelunking in Mammoth Cave to explore fossils more than 35,000 years old. Visit the Art Gallery of Western Australia to see one of the world’s finest collections of Indigenous Art. And mix your love for white sand beaches and wildlife with a visit to Cape Le Grand National Park, home to the western grey kangaroo and one of Australia’s best stretches of sand. Every cent of your tax refund spent on a trip to Western Australia… is so worth it!
