If you are one of those who like to plan vacations in advance or a budget traveller who must factor in finances first, this list is for. To help you make smart international travel plans, we bring you locations across the world where Indian currency holds a strong value.

Skyscanner, a global travel search engine, has listed international destinations where you can have a budget-friendly time out. The list has been drawn using search details and pricing data from over 50 million global users.

Costa Rica

Listed among the top 15 happiest countries in the world for 2016, Costa Rica is the go-to country for adventure travellers. The exchange rate favours the Indian currency and November is the cheapest time to book travel to the exotic country. The paradise country takes any traveller by surprise with its spotless accessibility as tourists can travel from coast to coast in barely three hours by car and indulge in exciting escapades like snorkeling, surfing, canopy touring, snorkeling, kayaking, jet skiing and rafting.

Zimbabwe

If you’re interested in wildlife, Zimbabwe with its famous national parks is the ideal holiday destination for you.

Plan a holiday in the haven of wildlife and be astounded as the Indian rupee lets you be lavish during it all. To make more within the budget, book in February for the best air fare. Be prepared to be mesmerised by the mighty Victoria Falls, the world’s largest curtain of water in the world, its renowned national parks and World Heritage-listed archeological sites. Matopos National Park, Hwange National Park, the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, Mutare town, and Chinhoyi Caves are a must-visit in Zimbabwe.

Indonesia

Bali has been an Indian favourite. While it is perennially on India’s mind, Skyscanner’s data says the cheapest time to book travel to the world’s largest island country is in May. Indonesia is a dream come true for any beach lover as it is home to picturesque azure waters and coral reefs.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is ideally placed in the Indian subcontinent, allowing easy and affordable holidays to Indians. The proximity and favourable currency exchange rate makes it perfect to visit any time. However, May and June are the cheapest time to book.
