If you’re like me, your thinking – OMG school’s almost out and I need to book that summer vacation! What to do and where to go? With a strong dollar in our favor, perhaps this is the summer for that European vacation (look kids – Big Ben, the Parliament!) and beyond – after all a strong dollar means cheaper vacations in many international destinations.
When we travel, we want to come back with great stories and unforgettable memories. MasterCard knows this better than anyone – Priceless was born out of the idea that experiences matter more than things, and 18 years later MasterCard continues to bring experiences to life in new and unexpected ways. And now that many of us are putting our dollar to great ‘experience cents‘, Priceless Cities may be the summer travel tip you have been waiting for.
