    There’s an article on contiki that says to budget around 75-100E per day, so I’m probably going to go with that, and then bring a credit card for anything extra.
    Im from Nova Scotia, Canada. Where are you from, SMD?

    Good plan. Sounds like a good idea

    Hi guys! I’m trying to get on this tour too. I willl be traveling alone. Anyone arriving in London a few days early? I’m coming from Los Angeles.

    how much money are you guys taking with you to europe? Should I exchange a bunch of money at home before i leave or is it cheaper/easier to just withdraw it from my bank account in europe as i need it?

    It only costs about 8 dollars in charges to withdrawl from your account at the ATM’s. I would bring a good amount of Euros and a little bit of pounds with you on the trip.

Tell us which euro tour you are on.and 2. Send me an fb personal message with your E-mail so I can place you in the right Event.
