If you're craving an escape from winter blues, we've got great news. Intrepid Travel, a group adventure travel company, is letting customers book 2018 trips with just a one-dollar deposit—yes, you read that right. As long as you book before February 8, 2018, for travel through December 31, 2018, you can lock down a food tour through Jordan or trek around Patagonia for less than the cost of a cup of coffee: That's a deal we can all get behind. Deposits are normally $400, according to Intrepid's terms and conditions page, so this promotion is a steal. Be aware: If you do decide to cancel or change dates, you'll have to pay the full refund instead of a dollar, so make sure your heart's set before you take the plunge. But, with over 1,000 different adventures available in 100-plus countries, it should be easy to find a trip you'll love.
According to the company's website, some of its most popular trips are in Asia. Starting at $926, you can travel from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam—stopping along the way to drink coffee with locals, explore the old imperial capital of Hue on a motorbike, and, sail through the floating villages of Halong Bay. Or, make your way to northern India to see Rajasthan for $1,330. The 15-day excursion takes you on a sunset camel safari in the desert, tours historic forts and palaces, plus it makes a pit-stop at the iconic Taj Mahal. While you're in Jaipur, be sure to check out the shopping scene—it offers some of the best jewelry and hand-woven cashmere scarves in the country.
Some of Intrepid's other top packages include Morocco (its most popular trip), a "Northern Lights Escape" in Reykjavik, and a combined journey through South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe—all reserved with one-dollar deposits, so why just stop at one?
However, if you really want to shake up your routine, Intrepid is also offering up to 35 percent-off deals for all its 2018-2019 Antarctica trips, so long as you book before January ends. As one of our top picks for where to go in 2018, the wild beauty (and rapidly changing) ecosystem of the continent is a must-see—and hopefully, will encourage visitors to work towards saving it.
