On the international side, use your gifted tax money in the spirit our president intended by spending it all in Bangkok, where flights drop 23% to $548. Or perhaps you’d rather use it to finally go on that house-hunting mission to Canada, land of friendly people and universal healthcare. Get your aspiring-expat on in Vancouver where airfares are down 22% to $230. Or maybe you just wanna remind the British why we left in the first place, by waving your check in front of Buckingham Palace. (“Taxation with representation, suckas!”) They’ll welcome you with open arms, and London flights down 25% to $597. The rest of the international bargains:
1. Madrid, Spain -- $605 (49%)
2. Tokyo, Japan -- $670 (36%)
3. Barcelona, Spain -- $543 (36%)
4. Paris, France -- $610 (31%)

Of course, unlike death and... OK, you know what? No. Just be aware this info isn’t 100% guaranteed, but that Hopper predicts it with 95% accuracy, which is pretty dang close. So if you trust them, enter your desired destination and travel dates into the app, and wait to be alerted when prices begin to drop. If you trust travel apps as much as you trust the government, and would rather obsessively search airfares from your cabin in rural Idaho, that’s cool too -- here are the best sites for finding cheap fares.
So even if taxes aren’t the highlight of your year April can always be made a little brighter by thinking about your next getaway. Though if your job title includes the words “independent contractor,” maybe don’t think too hard about how you’re going to pay for it.
