If I have to pay, we're not going!

I'm planning our family vacation to my family summer home.  Its a nice little house in the middle of nowhere, but you can hunt, and fish, and bond with nature.  Best thing of all, no cell phone service, no internet and no cable.  We usually go during the summer, but this year we're going in October. 

Anyway, my husbands two daughters want to go.  We were originally going to fly, but they insisted that they cant afford the tickets, so I said ok, we'll rent a van but they would have to chip in.  They said they could come up with $130 (not apiece, between them)  the Van rental is $500.  No what it is, is they want me to pay for them to come on vacation with us.  If they can afford Uggs and Iphones then they should be able to afford to either buy their own transportation (hell, the chinatown bus is only $20 and I can pick them up from the Richmond stop)  But I refuse to pay for them.  If I have to pay, I'd rather not go.  I also tried explaining this to DH but god forbid his princesses should have to be responsible.

How old are they? Are you making your kids pay their own way too?

Do you and DH have any children together? If yes, are you paying for them to go?

But how much were plane tickets going to cost for your family?  I"m betting more than the $500.

Seems like plane tickets for 4 would cost more and you're just being a jerk.
