How to Spend Your Tax Refund Traveling

By Roman


The average tax refund, according to the IRS is $3,120 and over 82% of tax returns result in a refund.

But what are the best ways to use these dollars for a great vacation? Here are eight ideas to get you started:


Go see the Northern Lights in Iceland

We know, it’s not the right time of year now to see the Aurora borealis, but Iceland is one of those “book well ahead” destinations. The best time for seeing these celestial wonders is between October and March, peaking in the winter months when nights are longer.


See Machu Picchu before the Inca dries on the return check

Summer is the best time to visit, when it's not as hot south of the equator. Putting your tax return toward checking this off your bucket list? Priceless!


Visit Ireland by sleeping in a collection of amazing castles

Everybody loves vacations in Ireland. The countryside is just gorgeous, the food is great, the people are warm, and the pub life is unforgettable. But imagine all of that and getting to bed down in authentic castles at the end of every evening. It’s a wee bit of heaven.


Say "oui" to Paris and Provence

Enjoy a few days of café society followed by the spectacular countryside of southern France. Benjamin Franklin famously declared, “Every man has two countries and one of them is France.”


Cash in on Cambodia

This exotic getaway will leave you speechless, then send you home with stories to tell. Visit the extraordinary Angkor Wat ruins (at over 400 acres, the largest religious monument in the world).


Live the Downton Abbey experience

Explore England’s quaint Cotswolds and take high tea in Westminster Abbey. Don’t forget to do some of that London shopping!
