MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite the current state of economic turmoil, the U.S. dollar is gaining strength against some currencies and causing more Americans to express interest in booking trips abroad. International travel site, ( makes it easier for travelers to take advantage of the stronger dollar by offering low fares to places like Brazil, Chile, Australia, Turkey, Argentina and India where local currencies have recently plummeted.

For example, the Brazilian real has fallen almost 30 percent against the U.S. dollar in the past three months. In October, the Indian rupee dropped to an all-time low against the greenback, and the dollar strengthened against the Chilean peso, hitting a multi-year high.

"We've seen a dramatic increase in the number of travelers searching for better international deals in the past few months," said Andre Hesselink, CEO. "Vayama has some incredible airfare deals right now so travelers can enjoy a more affordable trip to countries outside the United States."
