Car vacations can be affordable, but you still have to watch your expenses. The average cost of food per day on a road trip could start at $40 per adult if you buy all meals and snacks out. For example, breakfast at McDonald’s runs about $5 per person, a Meal Deal at Subway is around $10 for a Footlong sub, and dinner at a casual restaurant might be $20 per person. Add in some snacks or ice cream along the way, or stop at higher-end eateries, and your road trip food budget is going to grow.
Shaving a little here and there on the cost of meals can mean having enough money for another day or two on the road, to snag some nifty souvenirs during your visit or to splurge on a special meal or attraction.
