The average American will get almost $3,000 as a tax refund. Sounds like it’s time for a vacation! Here are seven great trips to spend your rebate on—and don’t worry, with prices starting at $818 per couple, you’ll still have some money left over.
There’s no need to fear tax season, especially since tax refund checks average some $3,000. Financial planners may tell you to save it for a rainy day, but, not surprisingly, we say there’s no better use for a windfall than a vacation. We are always on the lookout for great travel deals, so we priced out three nights’ hotel for two people (and one for a family of four), including transportation and a budget of $125 per person for meals, plus activities from horseback riding tours to surf lessons (all prices were valid at time of writing, but are subject to change). Whether you want to take the family on a national park adventure or go on a romantic vacation to a European capital, we’ve outlined seven vacations that fit the budget and still leave enough in the bank to appease your accountant.
