Calling all wanderlusters, the new decade is here and it’s officially time to smash those resolutions to work less and travel more. Whether you’re setting off on a European sojourn, planning a tropical island escape or discovering the sights, sounds and scents of South East Asia, 2020 is the year to make it happen.
Because we love nothing better than scoring a sweet deal on travel (read: more coin for food), we’re here to alert you that an epic travel festival is hitting Melbourne for two days only. From Saturday, February 8 to Sunday, February 9, the World Travel Expo is coming to town, slinging exclusive deals, expert advice, your favourite travel brands, and of course, free entry.
Plus, by registering and attending the World Travel Expo, you’ll be in with a chance to win the holiday of your dreams—from a summer spent hopping around the Greek Islands to striking out on a soul-awakening trek through Peru. Where do we sign up? Well, right here since you asked (and it’s free).
If you’re still needing some holiday inspiration, check our guide on where you should be travelling every month of the year. Spoiler: Opt for an African safari across Kenya in July and make waves in Morocco come September. Alternatively, hit up some of the best places to travel in 2020. The magical Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan tops the list for an eco-friendly, off-the-grid getaway while the bright lights of Tokyo take the cake for a city escape.
But if you’re on struggle street when it comes to annual leave, here’s how you can hack an extra two weeks off work this year without chewing into that precious leave balance. You’re welcome.
