Top 10 Best Cheap Places to Travel in July

The cheapest vacations in July are usually the hottest destinations, but if your trip planning priority is the budget, you can find some nice deals. Hotels and airfare to places like the Caribbean and Asia will be among the cheapest places to visit during the midsummer months because companies are looking to fill beds and seats.

While July is a key vacation month, when kids are out of school and families are traveling, the destinations with comfortable weather are going to be more popular and more expensive. If you can pack a little more sunscreen and drink a bit more water while you relax by the beach in exchange for the cheaper vacation bill, you might be able to pack in two getaways for the price of one.

Find the top places to visit on your next vacation with our list of the best cheap places to travel in July.

If you have ever wanted to travel to Phuket, one of the most popular destinations in Thailand, July is one of the most affordable times to do it. The caveat for Phuket is that it is never really a deeply discounted place to go due to its popularity and demand, but this month is one of the best to get better deals on hotels and airfare. The high season in Phuket is November through April, when the weather and tropical destination calls to vacationers looking to get out of colder climates.

The island is only an hour flight from Bangkok, and its beaches have a lot of notoriety, especially after recovering from the devastating 2004 tsunami, which destroyed the island’s infrastructure, tourism, and thousands of lives. Phuket has bounced back strong, and remains a stunning and memorable vacation spot.

The down side to the cheaper rates in July is that it is monsoon season, so the weather can be unpredictable. Despite that, you can still plan boat tours, spa experiences, visits to temples, and walking on the white sands of Nai Harn Beach and Kata Noi Beach.

Phoenix, Arizona

This southwest US city is one of the most stunning destinations to visit in the United States, and if you can stand the summer heat in the triple digits then you can get some nice lodging discounts in July. There are many golf courses, luxury resorts, and world-class spas in Phoenix that normally charge outstanding fees to their typically elite clientele. July is not the most desirable time to visit because of the sweltering temperatures, so it is the best time to snag the discounts and perks that these places have to offer.

Since the Phoenix heat is draining, you will want to limit your time outdoors if you plan to hike to Camelback Mountain or visit the Phoenix Zoo. If you visit in July, you can take advantage of the indoor museums like the Musical Instrument MuseumPhoenix Art Museum, or the Historical Heard Museum. Phoenix also has an abundance of indoor shopping opportunities nearby. You may also want to consider doing some day trips to nearby destinations like Sedona, Prescott, or Flagstaff, with a little cooler climate.

The Bahamas

It is not much of a surprise that a Bahamas vacation is cheap in the summer, given that it is mostly popular over the winter months, when tourists in the Northern Hemisphere want to escape cold weather. It is possible to find good Bahamas vacation discounts throughout the year due to resort competition on the island, but July is a great month to snag even steeper discounts. You can also find great flight deals to the Bahamas in July, as the airlines are trying to fill seats during this less popular time of the year.

The capital of Nassau has many all-inclusive resorts that offer discounted packages during the hottest months in the Bahamas to try and lure vacationers looking for a deal. You can save at the all-inclusive resorts and find additional savings with free nights, resort credits, and discounts to attractions that are often added incentives for travel.

Take your pick from more than 700 islands in the Bahamas and enjoy the beaches, parks, snorkeling, boat trips, or attractions like Atlantis on Paradise Island.

Mazatlan, Mexico

If you are looking for a cheap summer vacation in Mexico, the once-celebrity playground of Mazatlan is one of the best deals in July. Mazatlan is not as popular is its Mexican counterparts in Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, or Cabo San Lucas, which makes it a nice alternative (and cheaper) vacation. If you visit in July, you can get some hotel rooms for as little as 40 USD a night. The downside is that summer in Mazatlan is in the middle of the rainy season, so you have more likelihood of rainstorms.

One of the best spots to visit (rain or shine) is Old Mazatlan, which has historic relics like the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception church, small eateries, and beautiful architecture. Of course you will spend a lot of time on the beaches at Playa Olas Altas or the less crowded beaches at Isla de la Piedra. Mazatlan has many walkable areas, which will help your budget by saving on transportation costs around the city.

New Orleans, Louisiana

It is not a surprise that midsummer offers up big discounts in the Big Easy. New Orleans in July is hot, humid, and rainy, but if none of that bothers you then you can enjoy a cheap and fun summer vacation to the city to check out the famous jazz clubs, the historic French Quarter, great museums, and outstanding Cajun cuisine.

July hotel rate can be about 50 percent less than the same room during the high tourist season that runs from February through May when many of the big festivals are happening.

While there is no shortage of things to do in New Orleans, a July vacation means fewer crowds, so that you can enjoy some of the most famous stops, like Frenchman Street and a walking tour in the Garden District. You can also take advantage of better access to some of the cemetery tours and the New Orleans Swamp Tours, which can be tough to do in the high season.

Belize

The Great Blue Hole

A discount vacation in Belize requires some careful timing. July is a good time to go if you are looking for discounts because it comes after the high tourist season in April and the sweltering temperatures and humidity in the spring. Since it also comes before the rainiest months of August through October, you can get great rates at hotels and on excursion packages. The island of Ambergris Caye is the most popular destination in Belize, but you can research other locations, like San Ignacio, for vacation discounts as well.

The caution for traveling to Belize in July is that it is in the hurricane season, and you are likely to see some rainfall during your trip. It is also important to research the attractions that you want to visit ahead of time since some of them close during the low tourist season. Otherwise, planning ahead can net you great savings in Belize, so you can see the famous Great Blue Hole and the Hol Chan Marine Reserve near the barrier reef.

Even when planning a trip to Belize in the off-season, you will want to secure hotel rooms and look for deep discounts for summer far in advance.

Cairo, Egypt

There’s not a lot of travelers who are willing to stand the Egyptian heat for a little bit of savings but for those who do, July can be one of the cheapest times to visit Cairo. The July rates at hotels drop significantly.

The heat, combined with very little rain, can make walking the streets and winding alleys of Cairo a little uncomfortable, but you can plan your itinerary so that you have a mix of indoor and outdoor activities. You can make excursions to the Pyramids of Giza or visit the Great Sphinx on half-day treks instead of spending a full day in the heat. You can also look into vacationing in the coastal city of Sharm el-Sheikh, which will have cheap July rates, too.

Miami, Florida

Miami, Florida is a city that never sleeps, and while it is a hot destination to visit at almost any time of the year, you can find some of the lowest hotel rates in the summer. The heat and humidity of Miami in the midsummer months, not to mention the potential for hurricanes, push away many tourists, so hotels are scrambling to fill rooms. If you plan for some pool time to cool off, the deal might just be worth it.

Since Miami has a major international airport, you should also be able to score great rates and an abundance of availability for flights into the city. Whether you want to fill your vacation sitting on the sands of Miami Beach, hit the attractions like the Miami Zoo or Everglades National Park, stroll cultural neighborhoods like Little Havana, or just hit the many museums in town, there’s enough to do to fill your itinerary no matter what the weather.

Nha Trang, Vietnam

Pretty much anywhere you want to go in Asia in July will have cheap prices on airfare, hotels, and resorts since it is in the rainy season, but if you want to improve your odds for a less-rainy getaway, Nha Trang is one of your best options.

This city in Vietnam has its own weather patterns that do not produce as much rain during the rainy season, which often waterlogs the rest of the country. You can find cheap prices at hotels close to the beach, and the prices for things like food and services are also cheap, which will add to the savings.

Nha Trang is a coastal city, so there are plenty of beaches to enjoy, and excursions that can take you on the water for a leisurely boat tripsnorkeling, or diving.

Temperatures are hot in July, so you can mix up the outdoor adventures to temples, the Vinpearl Amusement Park, and the Hon Khoi Salt Fields with indoor visits to the National Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam and other local museums. Due to the low tourist season, you might also be able to negotiate discounted prices with local tour operators.

Sydney, Australia

Wintertime in Sydney means steep discounts on things like flights and hotels when the tourists have gone home for the season. This small summer window between June and August is a great opportunity to save about 40 percent on lodging compared to peak-season rates.

Besides saving money by traveling to Australia in July, you will also get a break on the heat and the tourist crowds at major attractions like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney’s beautiful beaches.

Even during the Sydney winter, you can still enjoy the stunning Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Garden, and the Australian National Maritime Museum. You will have more flexibility and opportunities to visit these attractions in the off-season before the major tourist crowds start arriving again in December.
