Vacation Budget Worksheet


Vacation Travel
Budget Worksheets
Want to know how much your next getaway will cost? Use the worksheet below to itemize projected expenses. Leave a blank if you do not require a certain item. If you don't know an exact amount, estimate. (It's a good idea to guess on the high side).
Underneath the pink expense work sheet, there's another one where you can calculate what you can afford to spend. If your vacation-expense total turns out to be less than your income total, great! You're on your way to planning a fiscally responsible vacation.
