Looking for an international getaway on a tight budget? This site has you covered Dreaming of an incredible vacation abroad — filled with history, rich culture and some much needed R&R — is one thing. Actually booking said trip is a whole other story, especially if you have a very tight budget for traveling.

But that doesn't mean scoring these coveted getaways with limited cash is impossible. There's a handful of websites out there dedicated to helping you get the best deal for the vacations that top your bucket list. One of the more helpful deal sites we've stumbled upon is GreatValueVacations, which specializes in affordable air-inclusive vacations.

Its bread and butter is European destinations. You can book an Irish escape staying in local B&Bs, a road trip across Italy to discover the best in food and wine, or even spend the holidays near the Eiffel Tower and tour Paris.

These robust deals, which include round-trip flights, accommodations, meals and even car rentals, are often cheaper than booking a trip yourself. Take, for instance, its English B&B six-night vacation package in London, which starts at $1,342. As an avid flyer to the UK, I normally spend on average $800 on a round-trip flight to London. Tack on six nights in a hotel in the city, and the cost of the trip can easily surge upward of $2,000.

But on this trip with GreatValueVacations, you get flights, airport arrival transfers, two nights in a central London hotel, four nights in the B&Bs of your choice, daily breakfast, a three- to six-day car rental, a one-day London pass to see the local sights, and a seven-day English Heritage Pass, which gives you access to historic monuments such as Stonehenge. Since the package is so flexible in terms of B&B location, you can make the trip that much more personalized. Whether it's a day trip to the Cotswolds or driving to the shores of Cornwall, London really is your oyster.

This same flexibility can be applied to a number of trips across Europe, including an Icelandic wellness spa retreat (starting at $1,274; GreatValueVacations.com) or a tasting tour of Portugal's wine regions (starting at $1,397; GreatValueVacations.com).

And if you're looking to explore outside of Europe, the site also features getaways in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Currently its cheapest excursion is a four-night stay in Playa del Carmen, starting at $705 per person.

But hey, don't just take our word for it. Over 4,587 past customers have rated GreatValueVacation 4 out of 5 stars, with a majority of travelers rating their trips "excellent" overall.
