The Travel Budget Calculator allows you to enter your trip budget, including your spending money and all of your typical travel expenses, to determine if you have enough money for your next vacation. Before you plan your next trip to France, be sure you are prepared for all incidental expenses that could arise. Most of the expenses are totals (as in, the total expense for the entire trip), but the first five with an asterisk (*) are entered as daily expenses since these are items one tends to know as a per-day cost. If you find you have a shortage, you can either make plans to save more or look for places to cut expenses.
