Ok, Let’s continue to beat a dead horse: DDP worth it or not? I know we have some number crunchers here so read; and the advise.
I used to be a staunch advocate for the plan, but that was with all the mini-mice. For DW and I this trip I am trying to do the math.
It seems if I look at a menu from Cali grill and figure $90 for a meal and $60 (high est.) for wine.
Using the DDP would cost me $13 for an appitizer and the $60 for wine. Round up the DDP to $60/day and allocate $30 for dinner. Two meal plans for CG = $60; I would pay $73 out of pocket so total cost would be $133.00 (+ tax/tip).
Out of pocket; $90 + $60 = $150. TiW would save me $30 for a total of $120.00 (+ tax/tip).
Somewhere in the trip is the $100 for the TiW card. As we plan to dine at Victoria & Albert’s, the 20% savings there alone pay for the card ($118).
What say you?
