Comped hotel in NYC because I comped their management at my hotel in Myrtle Beach. Free airline tickets on Spirit so we only had spending money.

I'm doing a week in Paris including airfare and accommodations for two for $1600.

My agent phoned me once, two days notice, with a 7-day RT air-only Detroit/Cancun, free parking at the airport, and a free night in a Detroit hotel. 99 bucks each.

Hard to quantify...I'd imagine it would certainly be one of the many many short 1 or 2 day trips I must have taken to visit friends somewhere nearby that I could drive to. Not sure if those would qualify as a holiday or not but certainly the actual hard costs of many of those would be under $100.

What's a little bit easier is figuring out the cheapest flights I've ever purchased, all in USD:

1) $170 for two segments: NYC to Milan on Alitalia and Prague to Hong Kong on Air France. (was a rather famous glitch fare back in 2014)

2) $20 for roundtrip JAX to Philadelphia on AA. Ended up not taking the flight due to schedule not working out lol.

3) $420 for roundtrip Atlanta to Hong Kong on United. Debated whether this one belongs in the same category as the other two, but I guess what was great about this one is it wasn't exactly during low season (in fact return flight was right in the holiday travel season) and it was perfect that the deal was on United since I had expiring United credits.

4) $5 for one way flights on Air Asia in/out of Malaysia. But this is actually fairly common.

That's easy. $5.00, at most. Tent camping in the winter or early fall when they didn't collect admission fees. The only thing that cost us "extra" was the gas to get to the campsite! We would have had the same food and used up the same amount of wood at home.

In my family, we take turns sponging on each other....LOL. Truly, it makes for some great and cheap vacations.


One family member lives on a boat on the west coast, one lives in the mountains, two live at the beach, one has a ski condo, one lives in a foreign country, and I live in a major tourist area.


We would be "insulted" if family doesn't stay with family when traveling. We all get along. If someone really, really wants to stay at a hotel, that's OK, but we're all very practical and love to save money.


Nobody takes advantage of anyone and everybody knows that the hosting and visiting will even out in the end.


It works for us. It's cheap. We love cheap.

I don’t wanna cop out and say, “staying at home”.

Honestly, we indulge in vacations because we like to travel. But it’s probably most of our quick getaways to Dallas. Cheapest hotel, good food, some activities for the kids.
