As we discuss in our approach to investing for the long game, big expenditures matter, and some of the biggest checks you’ll ever write are for vacations (at least if you’re lucky). So picking a travel destination should start with considering the cost. Of course, you could save a lot of money by camping out in Afghanistan, but you probably don’t want to visit a war zone. You’re also probably looking to have a good time, so you’ll want to go somewhere with a high quality of life.
Here at LGI, we believe in following the data… literally. That’s why we created our interactive map to crunch the latest data on travel costs, personal safety, and quality of life. We’ll be adding even more data and features that will help you select the right destination depending on your travel, investing, or retirement goals. For now, give it a spin and check out the Value, Safety, and Quality ratings for the countries you’re thinking of visiting. As always, let us know if there’s anything we can do to make it better.
