What does that vacation really cost?

Many people when they travel think they’ve gotten a great deal on the airfare and hotel but they often forget to factor in the other expenses. Expenses like food, beverages, attractions, entertainment, etc all add up and can really impact your bottom line. Here’s an on-line vacation cost calculator that can help you figure out your true vacation costs.

Let’s take this to the next level by comparing your Myrtle Beach week long vacation with all expenses factored in to a week’s cruise or all-inclusive vacation. I think you’ll discover that these vacations are affordable especially when compared to the “true” costs of your getaway to the beach trip.

Happy travels
