One of the financial costs that every potential parent is going to face is offering leisure to his family.
But we should already know that the cost of this trip for a family of 4 ( 2 parents, 2 children) is exponentially superior to what you would pay now as a student going on a trip with friends.
Firstly, you have to pay 4 tickets. Moreover, once you have a family you must rent a car if you want to visit the area where you go a little bit. Furthermore, you have to pay for a big room or 2 regular rooms. If your children are still very young and you want to go out for dinner with your wife, you will have to pay a baby-sitter. You will also have to feed kids, and kids eat a lot (at least 3 times a day), and when you cannot cook and you have to buy meals, it is very expensive to feed a family. I am not even talking about some extras that you wanna make, like visiting a museum, pay some videogames to your children....
It is a lot of money, and your children will not understand it and feels it is normal.
So, be careful and save money and to reduce costs, prefer to travel to cheaper locations or plan your trip a lot in advance to get discounts.
It has to be in your financial plan because you will be surprised to see how much you spent when you get back of this 3 days trip that will cost you a fortune.
So, maybe, let the kids to the grandfathers...
