Should You Fly or Drive for Your Next Vacation?

March 17th, 2017 by

Taking a family vacation is a tradition many families across the country hold year after year. No matter where you plan on going, odds are you’re trying to break down the cost to determine whether it would be cheaper to drive or fly. Here’s a little information regarding whether you should fly or drive for your next vacation from us here at Schlossmann Honda City.

Taking your family on vacation while sticking to a tight budget isn’t easy, but it’s entirely possible. There are costs associated with both driving and flying that can make all the difference.

Fly or Drive for Your Next Vacation

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is a great choice for fuel efficiency and comfort.


One of the main costs of driving, assuming you own your own vehicle, is gas. Provided you choose a fuel efficient vehicle, like any model on the Honda lineup, you can save money. Determine how much each tank of gas will cost, how many miles you get per tank, and how far you’ll be driving.

Don’t forget to include the cost of a hotel if you don’t have somewhere to stay. Meals are a must as well.

Fly or Drive for Your Next Vacation

Flying is more convenient but airline tickets can be very expensive.


Flying may be more convenient, but it comes at a cost. Airline tickets can easily cost hundreds, if not thousands, especially once round-trip tickets are taken into consideration. Make sure to include the cost of a rental car for transportation once you reach your destination. Hotel and meal costs should be included in the budget as well.

As it turns out, BeFrugal has a calculator dedicated to determining whether driving or flying will be cheaper for your family.
