My dd's dad lives clear across the country from where we live. Per our court order, he has to pay her traveling expenses for his visitation with her. My dd is only 10 so flying unaccompanied is out of the question.

My question is: If he has to pay traveling costs, does that include the cost of my airline ticket to accompany her, plus hotel room?

She can fly alone at 10. Court would not make him pay your costs, just hers.

Since 10 year olds are allowed to fly alone I would think he wouldn't have to pay for anything other than her flight.

This exactly. Cut the cord and put her on a plane.

We didn't go to court.

It's legal for a 10yr old to fly alone. Unless stated otherwise he is only obligated for her ticket. Not yours and your room.
