Making a travel budget? Here’s a starting point
What type of vacation can you afford? This interactive map can help you make smart travel decisions.
Name: Vacation Cost Finder
What it does: It’s an interactive map that takes your travel choices (domestic or international, beach, city or adventure, as well as four levels of daily spending) and calculates destinations in your price range.
What’s not: It doesn’t seem to consider the cost of your flight. You also don’t know what kind of hotel you’ll get. These are averages based on hotel prices from Hotels.com, so use it to get a rough idea before you dig deeper into travel planning on other sites. I’d also like to see a content partner attached to the interactive map to take travel planning to the next level.
