In order to help you identify the places that will get you the most bang for your buck in 2018, we teamed up with travel search engine Kayak.
The travel dates and search dates that Kayak looked at fell within the one-year period of October 25th, 2016, to October 24th, 2017.
Kayak also provided median hotel prices in those destinations and median airfare prices for flights departing from the US and Canada to those cities.
All of these prices are based on travel dates that fall within the one-year period of November 1st, 2016, and October 31st, 2017.
The 10 best travel bargains for 2018
Long haul for less than £1,000ThailandThailand is our long-haul tip for 2018 Credit: AP/FOTOLIAOverall, Thailand is my best tip for 2018.
Hotels in the capital are among the best value in the world, averaging £103 for a five-star and £27 for a three-star during 2017.
If so, I predict the very best value for 2018 will be Istanbul.
In the current guides, France (outside Paris) and Italy, both with a price limit of £28, offer the best value in Europe and are cheap to get to.
And when I checked advance fares for 2018, there were still plenty available for only £20.

January-February:When everyone goes home after New Years, travel demand plummets and we fall into the so-called “dead weeks” — the slowest (and cheapest) time of year for bargain hunters.
Now through early March is a great time to find excellent last-minute deals.
There are plenty of other hotel deals to be had beyond this promotion, so shop around.
November-DecemberAs we all know, travel prices start to rise again during the week before Thanksgiving, but travel patterns have been changing lately.
