When you’re budgeting for your next vacation, be sure to factor in the cost of flights. •
For instance, if you’re wanting to vacation in Costa Rica from Houston for two, then you can factor in around $1300 (depending on time of year) for the air portion. •
Average cost differs greatly by time of year, departure city and where your final destination is. •
Aaron and I can usually fly roundtrip for two to Cancun for around $500.
However, it was $1400 for us to fly to the Dominican. If our budget would’ve been $2500 for 6 nights in Punta Cana, then after airfare, we would only have been left with $1100 for the resort....which just isn’t doable for 6 nights. •
Just always average in the price of getting there and home when you plan your overall budget.
And remember, most of the time you only have to pay for airfare up front, the rest can be paid on up to 45 days prior to travel!
