Catch the Tail End of Summer with Vayama’s Europe Trough the Side Door Deals and Chill Out Down Under.
By Florin R Ferrs.
Make your summer trip to Europe an Indian summer and enjoy lower fares and smaller crowds by booking for late August and September. I recommend that you skip congested Paris and London and take advantage of vayama’s discounted trans Atlantic airfares to Europe’s side door: Frankfurt, Berlin, Vienna, Copenhagen, Prague and more from $655 total in September.
Score one of these cheap late summer trans atlantic deals to the heart of Europe and enjoy a less congested Europe; from Copenhagen’s midnight sun to lazy days on the beach in Santorini.
Mellow Out and Be Cool Down Under this August
Now is the time to grab the cheapest transpacific airfares from Los Angeles to Melbourne from $633 on V Australia. Enjoy Sir Richard Branson’s award winning service over the water and Melbourne’s cooler temperatures. The weather is perfect for alfresco dining next to a traditional Ozzie outdoor fire, and for wine tasting around Melbourne.
Ski Oz and Ride the Ghan
You can also ski Australia’s premier sky resorts that are only a two hour drive from downtown Melbourne. Another advantage of the southern winter is that the famously scorching Australian outback cools down. Some mornings start with a light dusting of snow on top of Ayer’s rock (Uluru). The cooler temperatures make hiking in the outback a lot easier; the air is crisp and all the famous outback flies are gone. Take the famous Ghan Train from Melbourne to the heart of the outback, stopping in Alice Springs and Ayers Rock. Ride the Ghan train all the way north to the town of Darwin, on the balmy shores of the Timor Sea, and enjoy Darwin’s tropical climate, with miles and miles of pristine beaches and saltwater crocodile safaris galore. You’ll need to pack a bathing suit with your ski parka on your next vacation to Down Under this August.
