    Default For arguments sake...

    If you were going on holiday somewhere say for eg, yourself, DH and 1 child (assuming you just had the one) along with ONE of your parents and you were hiring accommodation together (2 bedrooms) and a car:

    How would you split the cost?

    Let's say for arguments sake the car hire for the duration of your holiday cost $600 and the accommodation cost $400

    I would split it over the adults...

    So 1000/3=$330ish per adult (so $660 for you and DH, $330 for the one parent)

    Car 3 ways .... If you husband and bub in one room. Inlaw in the there other Split that in half

    If ur getting a 2 bedroom unit .... In 3 ways

    My aunt and uncle went thru this with my gran a few yrs back.... They thought because there money was coming from one " account" ( they both worked full time) that it was ok to split the holiday 50% 50%

    50/50 or how?

    Like you & DH 50% and your parent 50%?

    Or you and your DH 66% and your parent 33%?

    I'd split it by 3, so 33% per adult. So DF and I would pay 66%.

    With the $1000 hypothetical I would expect the parent to pay $333 and the couple to pay $666 (whoever can make up the $1 difference)...

    I agree with thirds, unless the child was occupying its own bedroom and that room cost extra per night. That seems to be the case alot. In that case some consideration would need to be taken into that extra cost.
