How Much You Spent on Travel in 2008

Saving up for a trip is one of the best types of saving, in my opinion. The majority of you spent somewhere between $500 and $3,000 on travel this year, so let's just call it an average of $1,500, shall we? Eighty-seven percent of you traveled away from home at some point in 2008. An equal percentage of you either took staycations this year or spent more than $5,000 on travel. Those opposing groups make up approximately 25 percent of the total.

What does your travel schedule look like for 2009?

Just gas for a few camping trips, so around $300? Next year it'll be higher though with airfare for two southern California marathons (Probably around $200?) and a Vegas trip in June!

My boyfriend and I are runners, so we fly to different states to run 1/2 marathons (my goal is to run a 1/2 marathon in each state). On top of that, I am a devoted University of Michigan football fan, and I have season tickets. Translation - I fly out to Michigan at least 4 times a season. I traveled to VA, TX, and PA + 4 trips to MI this past fall alone. This coming year, we've already planned Disney's marathon in January, Nashville in April, Seattle in June, and Disneyland's 1/2 in September. I am moving back to MI (From NY) in August, so that will also cause some serious spending (although I save with the flying I usually do in the fall for football). Other races haven't been planned yet, and I would like to do at least 1-2 more states (although MI will probably be one)...hopefully though I can make it be one close to my home state currently or my new home state in the fall :)

I am spending two months in Italy this summer for school, which has set me back quite decently, even with loans and financial aid. So that will be it for vacations in '09.

I don't have anything planned yet. My parents are going to Disney World for 2 weeks to celebrate their anniversary. My husband and I are thinking of flying down to surprise them for a few days.

Zero. I never travel beyond a 60 mile radius. :( Too broke.

I have a local trip in January, a trip to the US in Feb and a trip to Europe in May. But I think I could fit a few more trips in over the course of the year. In fact, I'll be bummed if I don't.

My husband's family lives in Washington so we spend about 1K a year to see them and then about an additional 3K-4K on vacations.

I have two trips coming up for January and I'm planning on something big and different than my usual haunts this year... so probably a LOT more than usual.
