    There is hardly many models to choose from unless you get those lower quality non-brand stuff and even then...you still need to factor in the memory modules you need to store your shots. If you are going on a trip and you dont't have some external storage like a notebook or some external Harddrive device that let you download the pictures you shoot with the camera, you will run out of space really quick. Usually the memory module they give you with the camera you buy is very very small in size.

    So with $300...you will find yourself pretty much better to stick to 35mm filme Point & Shoot. Given your budget and maybe if you are not familiar with digital cameras...you might run the risk of not getting much good shot during your holiday since you have to spend time learning how to use it. Frankly speaking $300 can't get you anything reasonably good or reliable in my view.
