How much spending money for family if four for 10 nights?

Hi there,

We were thinking of taking £3,000 spending money for our 10 night holiday. £2,000 on a travel card and £1,000 cash in dollars. Do you think this is enough for a family of four (2 adults, 3yr old & 9yr old). We will be staying at a hotel so will be eating out, breakfast and dinner and probably a snack for lunch. We will have a full size hire car so will need petrol and parking for at least 4 days. Only one day shopping at the end of the holiday.

Do you think this is enough/too much?

Thanks in advance for advice.

Plenty we are a family of four and take £2000 for 12 nights and that covers everything we need, shopping, restaurant meals and bits and bobs. We allocate about 200 dollars a day for food and drink. Some days we use it all and some days we have some dollars left over. We tend to eat at restaurants like bubba gump, Olive Garden and Cheesecake Factory.

We take about £2000 for food, taxis and that's four adults (as my daughters are 17 and 19). Park tickets paid for before we leave. That's for 2 weeks.
