Cyprus is offering quite an interesting deal to attract tourists to visit the country. The government will pay for your vacation (accommodation, food, medication, etc.) for free if you get the virus while visiting the country. The visitors will need to show a testing certificate and will need to use a mask all the time.


Cancun, Mexico

The most loved Mexico vacation site has launched the “Come to Cancun 2X1” special to attract tourists coming to their beaches and fancy hotels. The deal offers you a free night in one of their lovely properties if you book for two nights. This means, if you stay for 3 nights, you only need to pay for 2.

Moreover, you can get a refund for the travel ticket to fly with one companion. You also would have the chance to win their social media giveaway which would earn you a lifetime travel certificate to Cancun.



In response to the huge hit to the tourism industry, Japan has decided to inject about $12.5 billion by subsidizing half of your travel expenses.

When you make the bookings through Japanese travel agencies or directly get in touch with hotels and ryokan inns, you are eligible for these subsidiaries. You can get up to $212/day in discounts and vouchers that you can spend in local shops and restaurants.
