 Suggested Money Lesson Plan for this Worksheet   Calculating and budgeting the costs of travel, before you travel, is important since travel costs can end up much higher than anticipated.  What are some of these costs and how are they calculated?   Travel - Includes transportation by car, train, airplane, bus, taxi.  For travel costs, we must calculate the cost of round-trip transportation.  If one way prices are given, you must multiply by 2.   Hotel - Housing costs.  This is usually a per night charge.  If multiple people are staying in the same room, then costs are less.  If you are staying somewhere 6 days and 5 nights, then multiply 5 times the rate per night.   Meals - Eating out every day can add up pretty quickly.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between.  Will you be eating at a restaurant or cooking your own meals?  Calculate average cost per meal, multiply times meals per day, and multiply that number by number of days on the trip.   Other Expenses - Tours, entertainment, admission tickets, parking fees.   Other Travel Costs - Taxis, parking fees, rental cars, other incidental expenses.
