Top 10 Places to Experience the Perfect Summer Getaway

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

A summer getaway should be restful (and as an added bonus, fun), and if that’s what you’ve been craving for a long time, now’s the time to get out there. Even if you’re unable to commit to a longer vacation period, getting away everyone in a while does anyone a whole world of good. In fact, if you’ve been wondering just where to head to this summer, just take a look at our list of recommendations down below:


Fancy a trip to Los Cabos to bask under the warm sun rays? Well, if you’re heading over here in July or August, you’ll also be able to enjoy less crowded beaches, lower hotel rates, and cheaper domestic one-way flights. There’s bound to be something here that will capture your heart (or your stomach) during your stay, so you should definitely look forward to having your summer break here.


If you are a mountain lover and you want to enjoy an authentic Canadian experience, this is the perfect destination. Whistler is located in the Coast Mountains, just two hours north of Vancouver. Of course, for all your transportation needs, you can always count on our Whistler limo rental. Whistler is a great destination for families that can enjoy an array of exciting and fun activities such as exploring 50 km of hiking trails, going on a beer tour, unwind along sandy beaches, and more. 


From the magnificent Sahara Desert to the maze-like Medina in Marrakesh, Morocco is truly a country worth putting onto your summer bucket list. Sure, it’s going to be desert-hot till August, but the good part about it is that there will be fewer crowds everywhere. If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to ride a camel, you’ll definitely get to try that out in this exotic destination. 


There’s more to Dubai than meets the eye, and over the years, it has become a worldwide holiday destination that has plenty to offer. From the magnificent Burj Khalifa skyscraper to the famous 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab, you’ll best prepare to have your mind blown. There’s also plenty of affordable food options, air-conditioned shopping malls, and other luxurious amenities just waiting for you this summer.


From Bali’s lush rice fields and white sand beaches to the wildlife-rich jungles of Sumatra, there’s plenty to see and explore this island country. In fact, it’s the dry season from April to October, and that means it’ll be the perfect time for sightseeing and other outdoor activities. Indonesia is also a nation that really gives you incredible value for your money, so do drop by this summer to experience a whole new world.

Bora Bora

It’s a popular honeymoon destination for a reason, so why not head on over to this island paradise for the summer? With such beautiful turquoise waters beckoning from below your water bungalow, it’ll be an unforgettable trip. Sure, you can also go to the beach or lake where you live, but it’s a whole other world here that’s bound to result in a mind-blowing (but restful) experience. If you’re into snorkeling and scuba diving, you should also pay their beautiful coral reefs a visit.


The best time to visit would be spring or fall, but if you’re looking to hoard the laid-back luxurious lifestyle to yourself, you can definitely visit Monaco during the hottest period on July and August. Enjoy stunning coastal views in this independent city-state on the Mediterranean coastline of France. From experiencing gourmet foods at Condamine Market to trying your luck at the famous Casino de Monte Carlo, you’re bound to have a whale of a time here.


If you’ve always been curious to visit Iceland, now’s one of the best times to do so when the weather is warmer (it’ll be summer till October). There’s always the chance to witness the amazing Northern Lights spectacle, and if you’re one of the lucky ones, you can rest assured that it’ll be a truly breathtaking experience. For those curious about Nordic cuisine, you should definitely stop by the capital, Reykjavik, for some really spectacular food.


Even if it is 55 - 66°F during the winter season till November, that doesn’t mean you can’t have your summer break here. After all, there’s plenty to occupy yourself with (especially your stomach) as their yummy food tours run throughout the year. Once you’ve fuelled up, you can also spend some quality time among the world’s largest collection of Ancient Peru artifacts at the Larco Museum.


This isn’t a place to spend most of your time indoors. With such great weather and beautiful surroundings, it’s almost a crime to not spend as much of your time outdoors like the locals. Most popular activities on the island revolve around the outdoors, so if scuba diving, swimming, surfing, hiking and even sunbathing is on your list of to-dos’ this summer, you’ll best head on over here right now.
