Want to Compare the Cost and Time of Driving Versus Flying for Your Next Trip?

With both gas and airline ticket prices skyrocketing, it may be hard to tell whether driving or flying is the better value (in terms of both money and time). This “Fly or Drive Calculator” can help you wisely plan your next trip.

BeFrugal.com’s Fly or Drive Calculator uses cost data from AAA and things like necessary overnight stops for the driving time and cost estimate. The flying estimate takes into account travel time to the airport and other associated times and costs. You can fine-tune the details for both modes of travel in the calculator to get more precise results.

There are intangible costs and other factors to consider when deciding how to travel, of course, such as how well your children behave in the car and the professional value of each vacation hour to you. As a general rule of thumb, car drives that are four hours or under in length are usually more cost-effective than flying.

Find out whether you should drive or fly for your next vacation (in the continental US) with the calculator linked below.

About martingilligan

Many of my friends and family have stated that I not only have a gift with words but also self expression. As long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a writer, but being my own worst critic, I tend either not to share my work, or take the necessary risks to accept the criticism one needs to grow and continue on with my craft. I often start on projects with the intent to succeed, but rarely if at any time do I continue to follow through. It is my hope that this experiment will be the necessary tool to keep me in the habit of pursuing my dream of writing, and continuing on even when Mr. Criticism comes knocking on my door. So as I often say, a blank page is an open invitation to view my thoughts and ideas as I bleed my creativity upon its empty space. So strap yourself in...the roller coaster ride is about to begin, as I welcome you to my madness.
