I am looking to take a vacation to Charleston, SC next year. It will be for 7 nights. I am looking to make the trip for under $1000. That includes hotel, flight, spending, and eating.
The hotel room for 7 nights at a Homewood Suites comes out to $1,701.00. Thankfully I work for a Hilton brand hotel so my actual cost after taxes is $307.13. This is for 2 adults and 1 child (I am taking my mom with us).
I checked into flights, but Delta won't let me check for the dates I need. I guess it's too far out? Anyhow, for 2 months before my planned date it showed I was able to get 3 round trip tickets for $708.00
The hotel and the flights have taken my $1000 budget. Now I am working on ways to lower those 2 costs so I can take my son on his first vacation. we have taken mini-vacations. Going my 2 days off to Tulsa since it's within driving distance.
I have signed up for Delta Skymiles and I have earned 2,000, but need around 120,000. Slowly but surely! :) Hopefully things will go as planned and I will get my hotel/flight costs down to no more than $500.
