Question description

Assume that you are considering a 7-night vacation to Fort Walton Beach, Florida, in March. You estimate the total cost of the trip to Fort Walton Beach at $1,250, including discounted airfare. However, a resort at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is offering 3 free nights with a 7-night stay. The advertised value of this special 3-night free offer is $397. In addition, you must use a $200 flight coupon that you received from an airline last December to compensate you for a 6-hour flight delay. After applying the $200 flight coupon and the $397 for the 3 free nights, the total out-of-pocket cost for the trip to Myrtle Beach is $1,100. Based on the total explicit and implicit costs, should you take the trip to Fort Walton Beach or to Myrtle Beach? Explain your answer and support it with total cost estimates (explicit plus implicit) for each trip option.
