Tourlane, the online travel experts for tailor-made dream vacations, has revealed eight exotic destinations to visit in Winter 2019/2020 that are cheaper than a week of skiing in the USA. The index, which includes three countries in South America, Africa, and two in Oceania, exposes how expensive domestic ski vacations are in comparison to dream trips of a lifetime to the other side of the world.

South Africa roars into first place, and is the most affordable destination for an exotic getaway this winter. The top eight exotic destinations for a getaway in Winter 2019-2020 are:

Places like South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia are frequently thought of as once-in-a-lifetime destinations,” said Tourlane’s Director of Marketing, Jillian Randolph. “We are excited to reveal that they are actually cheaper than visiting Colorado for a week of skiing, giving travelers an exotic alternative to an expensive week on the slopes this season.”

Additional takeaways from the research:

  • South America and Africa are the best-represented continents in this year’s ranking, with three countries each in the top eight.
  • South America dominates the affordable end of the ranking, with three of the top five countries located there.
  • A week in Beaver Creek, Colorado is 259% more expensive than a week in South Africa, 195% more expensive than a week in Argentina, and 176% more expensive than a week in Chile.


In order to rank the exotic destinations based on price, the following price factors were researched for a seven-day period, using Tourlane’s own data: All transfers, activities, and accommodation. To understand how these prices compare to a week on the slopes, the price of ski rental, a lift ticket, lunch, and accommodation for a seven-day period was also researched. Winter 2019-2020 runs from December 21st, 2019 through March 20th, 2020.
