  2. Which costs contribute most to your travel expenses? Food? Accommodations? Land transit (such as rental cars, etc)?
  3. What frugal strategy is the most challenging with a group the size of your family? (Airline tickets? etc.)
  4. Which strategies do you find most helpful for traveling with a family?
