Average cost of a trip

Jump to last reply

Okay, since many of you are travel experts and have it all down to a science, I have a very general question that I nevertheless submit for your consideration: for THREE people (2 adults and child), how much would it cost for a two week trip in the winter to Paris? Take into account a reasonable sale on airfare from say Boston to Paris; an apartment rental of a fairly nice sized (i.e., 60 sq meters plus) 1-2 bedrooms in a nice (though not chi chi) area, eating out 1 meal a day at a reasonable place (pizzeria) with the rest of the meals either purchased at the market or a crepe type place, some money for transportation around and seeing places, but lots of walking -- and say about 200 E for flipping out (e.g., books and DVDs).

Ok, so we said the winter -- how about the summer?

What say you? Has anyone come up with a budget that you try to meet in order to maximize travel?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts....
