spring break cost

From Palm Beach to Palm Springs, Panama City to Punta Cana, Myrtle Beach to Montego Bay, winter-weary spring breakers are looking for warm getaways that won’t empty their wallets.

Fortunately, we have some tips to help — and they’re not just for college students. Officials in spring tourist destinations say hotels are already seeing advance bookings from family vacationers, too.

Getting there may be half the fun and a lot of your savings if you carpool to avoid expensive airline tickets. While fuel costs have come down (but are heading back up), airline ticket prices remain aloft.

Though up from lows earlier this year, gasoline averages about $2.33 a gallon, or $1.23 a gallon less than its $3.56 average around last year’s spring break time, according to AAA. So if your destination is three 15-gallon tankfuls away, you’ll pay about $210 round-trip, or about $110 less than the same getaway last year.

Barring major supply disruptions, AAA says it expects drivers will continue to pay less than $3 per gallon throughout 2015.
