Thinking about getting away? Well, before you start planning there are few things you should consider. First, let’s start with some numbers:
The average vacation costs $1,145 per person, or $4,580 for a family of 4.
Surprisingly, close to half of that amount goes to to taxes and fees. And depending on where you stay, hidden resort fees could run you up to $25 per day.
Pro Tip 1: Read the fine print when booking a hotel or airfare online. Don't click "purchase" until you know the full cost of the airline tickets or hotel.
Pro Tip 2: Get Honey.
What’s Honey? Glad you asked (in your head at least).
