Vacation Budgets

Recommended Posts

I know alot of you travel for leisure frequently. I haven't. But I just finished putting together a trip to Nova Scotia for a week in July for my family (4 total). Flying from Raleigh to Halifax, rent a car and tour the Island for a week. Right now, my costs are around $4,300, not counting the $400 I had to cough up for passports. Does this seem about right to those of you in the know? TIA.

Doesn't sound too bad. I spent $5500 in Maui 13 years ago for 3 people! :D

On a big trip I usually look at $400-$500/day minus airfare. Side excursions can great pricy, especially if you include Helicopters/Plane tours or even water excursions.

Make sure you go to Peggy's Cove, NS. Great photo ops!

Have fun!

We spent about $5k on a Disney vacation last year. I thought it was a rip off, but my wife didn't.

 

This year we'll spend less than a grand on a local river trip for a family vacation.

 

I found out last night that I will also be going to San Diego in August. My wife is going down there to train some people on a computer system and I'm going down to keep her company for a few days. :D

Spending two nights in Mahone Bay to tour that, Lunenburg, and Peggys Cove. Can't wait.

 

I might need a tutoring session from you for posting a slideshow :D

We just got back from Disney. Spent 8 days between Disney and Newport Beach. My sister has a 2 mill plus home in Newport. We spent the first 4 nights with their family and then stayed at a hotel very close to Disney.

 

It was tough staying in the hotel after having access to all of their toys at their home. They had a maid, nanny, and gardner.

 

The trip cost us for 2 adults and 2 kids about 3k.
