Summer is a great time to make memories with your loved ones; the biggest challenge for many is how to plan and make those memories affordable. According to Vacation Kids, who specialize in pricing vacations for families with children, to fly your family to California can be $200 per person, totaling $1,200 for a family of six.
Then, you would have to get your hotel which is $125-$300 a night. $625 for a hotel room meant to sleep just four people. Staying in a hotel also means eating out. Basic food and meals per day average to $60 per adult and $45 per child. Gratuity and alcohol increase that average. A family of 6 would average a 5 night trip for $900 on eating.
The price can really go up when it comes to planning activities and entertainment. The price for a Disney Park entrance is $65 – $115 per person per day. A family of 6 would range from $1,085 – $1620. You’re looking at a total of $4,345.
You may also be thinking a cruise is a better choice with your transportation, food, and activities are all included in the price. The average price for a 5-night cruise is $400 per person. Soft drinks, specialty drinks, and alcohol increase that average. Flight and a cruise to Mexico would cost $3,600. Unfortunately, these numbers do not reflect any additional entertainment or shopping your family might be interested in, either.
According to American Express’s 2013 survey on summer vacation family travel, the average expense per person in the United States is $163.57 per person per day.
