Now that Tax Day has come and gone, people will be waiting for their refunds and thinking about what to do with the money. A new tool from Kayak wants to help them figure out how to spend it on a vacation.
The travel search engine’s Tax Refund Trip Calculator lets users put in the amount they’re getting back from the IRS and then finds flights they can afford.
- After entering the amount of the refund, Kayak directs them to a map with destinations and prices.
- From there, travelers can choose the type of trip they want, like a beach vacay or a family theme park trip.
- Users can also narrow down the options by putting in a date range and other details.
So far, the average tax refund amount this year has been $2,910, according to statistics from the Internal Revenue Service as of March 31st. And that would be enough to take some pretty great trips, as Kayak says the average four-day trip within the U.S. runs about $14-hundred for flights and hotels.
