Hello and thanks for using!

Here are a few links with data from AAA surveys on this topic...

Is this the kind of information you're looking for?? It may also help to know that Americans have (on average) 13 days of vacation. However, a 2009 survey by Expedia found that even though Americans have the least amount of vacation days compared to other countries, they leave 3 days unused on average each year ( So, at 10-13 days annually at the 2008 AAA survey results of $250 per day on average, we're looking at annual vacation expenses totalling $2500 - $3250. This number may be more or less depending on the destination (particularly Hawaii according to the first survey) and the number of people traveling. I hope this helps!
