    people if you don’t mind me asking…. how much money is everyone taking over for the move?…. i’ll have $16,000. and how much are people taking for there contikis?… how much a day?..

  • 11 Jan 2011 Kelli-Sian said


    All good! Im not going till August so still saving but will aim to have hopefully at least 5K pounds to be safe and get me by if worst come to worst.

    For my actual contiki Im going to budget $100 a day, after reading heaps on this forum that seems the way to go BUT hopefully I won’t need to spend that much! How much were you thinking Ashlee?

  • 11 Jan 2011 Ashlee said


    i’ll have 16,000 new zealand money so whatever that ends up changing 2. im thinking 100 a day for my contiki 2
