What does a trip to Daytona be?
Well, we can’t really say with any certainty because, well, we have to wait until July 15 to get to the airport, but we can say it’s going to be the most expensive vacation ever.
A whopping $1,734,076,000 was spent on the trip from July 12 to July 17, and according to The New York Times, “The most expensive trip to date is the one taken in 2013, when the price tag reached $1.7 billion.”
For comparison, the average cost for a flight from Miami to New York City is $5,500.
So how does a single person travel to Miami for the week?
Well… the cheapest flight on the Miami to Orlando route, for $749 per person, is booked through the Travelodge website, while a single adult trip from Orlando to Miami costs $1:1, which would put it at a whopping $929,832, which is a whopping 21 percent of the total cost of a trip from Florida to Florida.
The next most expensive flight on that route, which costs $959 per person to Miami, is to New Orleans, while the cheapest trip is to St. Augustine, Florida, at $1 per person.
And if you’re curious about the number of people who will make it to Miami from Florida, the trip is booked out to 12,000 people from 11 countries.
The trip is expected to last about three months, and if you do get a chance to see Daytona Beach, you’ll likely want to get there on a Saturday afternoon, so you can catch a sunset.
You’ll need to plan on making two flights in one day, but you can buy a second round trip ticket for $3,500 and take it on the same day, which means you could go to Daytona for four days if you wanted to spend a couple of weeks there.
To top it off, you’d also have to buy a couple more days’ vacation for a total of six days, which will put the total for the trip at around $2,400 per person for a two-week stay.
The only downside is that you’ll have to make some tough choices about which hotel you want to go to on your trip, but if you want a little bit of luxury and you’re willing to do the work, it’s definitely worth it.
