But did you ever consider getting discounted travel by visiting a country that’s “on sale?” Letsg.ooo is a website that helps you find where you can travel for less, based on your local currency.
Here’s my review!
Letsg.ooo Shows You Cheap Countries to Live
Link: Letsg.oooLetsg.ooo compares the current exchange rates versus the average to tell you which countries are “on sale” for you.
The tool was created by Million Mile Secrets reader Justin, and launched in early 2017. It uses currency comparisons to show folks which countries are cheaper to visit than usual.
To test the site, I searched for the US dollar and didn’t specify a region, just “anywhere.” But you can choose from different regions around the globe, including the Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.
When searching for the US dollar, letsg.ooo found Malawi, Argentina, Mozambique, and Ghana are the 4 countries that are the most “on sale” right now. Meaning the US dollar is doing very well against their currencies.
How Letsg.ooo Could Improve
I like how you can get a quick read on places where the US dollar is strong. But don’t like that it only returns 4 countries.
Emily agreed, and suggested it would be a lot more useful if letsg.ooo showed the top 10 to 20 countries on sale, sorted by region.
Plus, currency is only part of the equation when considering how much it costs to travel (or live!) somewhere. But letsg.ooo could be a good place to start!
Don’t forget to check out this post Numbeo, a website that can help you get an idea of the prices for everyday expenses in other parts of the world.
Bottom LineLetsg.ooo shows where the US dollar is currently has a better exchange rate compared to historical averages.
That means your money goes further. And travel (or living!) overseas could be much cheaper.
It’s a handy reference and good for travel ideas, especially if you’re open-minded. Or want to stretch your dollars!
