Default Travel costs across decades...

And from the department of weird facts.....

I was attempting to dig up an old trip report to Mexico from 1999 when I came across an expense report from that same era. I stayed at the same hotel, and visited the same customer in Monterrey, MX in 1999 as I did last week.

My hotel cost me the same amount last week, as it did in 1999. My taxi fare from the airport to the hotel and back went up $5 in each direction. My airfare was $20 less last week than in 1999.

I don't know what to make of that, except that the costs of travel to Mexico have been stagnant for over a decade. Wow.

Those are surprising numbers. We should make some other comparisons to late 1990s and see how prices elsewhere have changed.

Without looking, I know that my favorite hotel in Paris has gone up about 25% during the last 10 years.

You can fly for less domestically on sale fares than you did in the 1960's and 1970's. Cruise fares are about the same as they were in the 1980's BUT the onboard costs have gone up to make up for it. Hotel costs are higher in many places but then it also depends on where you get the hotel rate for your date of stay.
