We all like to look forward to our holidays. They’ll always be a much-needed break in what has probably been a hectic and difficult year. You’ll be looking to get as much bang for your buck on your holiday, with as little hassle as possible. A holiday should be about relaxing, so you’ll want to let someone else take the front seat. But you’ll also want to make sure that you’re going to get exactly what it is that you want from your holiday.

A fantastic way of getting the most out of your money whilst also being taken care of is aiming to visit more unusual holiday destinations. More unusual destinations are unlikely to be quite so plagued with holiday companies. This means that the ones that do operate there are more likely to give you the exact experience you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a professional service with a personal touch, then you should be looking into this.

Here are a few of the more unusual holiday destinations that will allow you to get the best of both worlds.

Eastern Europe

This is a rather vague general term. There are certainly parts of Eastern Europe that are dangerous or difficult to visit. But there are other areas that are understandably becoming viable and attractive holiday destinations. Think about somewhere like Croatia. With a beautiful coastline and a fantastic landscape, the country will offer you almost everything that a country like Greek or Spain would offer but at a fraction of the cost.

Croatia in particular is now reaching a point where it is an established and popular destination. So you may want to look to some of the less obvious choices in order to find a destination where you will get the most bang for your buck.


There are plenty of private tours of Israel that will also fall into your ideal holiday category. A private tour will mean that you get the best of both worlds. You will be guaranteed value for your money and a cultural experience that will engage with you on many levels. Israel is a more unusual holiday destination in general because of how far away it is. But with flights coming in at huge discounts, there has never been a better time to capitalise on this culturally rich and historic holiday destination.

Off Season

This is a bit of a strange one, and one that doesn’t pertain to any particular destination. The principle is that holiday destinations during the season are completely different than they are off season. If you go out of the regular time you are likely to get a completely different experience, and one that is richer with native culture. You will also get a huge discount, as there will be no other competition for rooms or board. Deals such as this can always be found at the very last minute, as hotels and companies try to get just a few more bookings in before the year is over. Take advantage of them and book one up today.
