Question

Spending money for 6 months travelling?

I want to know how much money I will need to save for 6 months travelling?

I am doing around 4-5 months in UK/Europe and then 2 months in America.

I have around $30,000 saved with flights already paid for and 3 contiki tours already booked and paid. Is this more than enough to travel comfortably without being too stingey with everything? Obviously I'm not just going to splurge on everything and will save where I can but don't want to be worrying about money all the time.

Advice please!

Thanks

    Friends and I are planning to spend 6 months in Europe next year and we were talking about 20000 AUD as a tentative budget. We’re all students though, so this is kind of a rough estimation of how much we could realistically earn coupled with how much we want to spend. I have no idea if this is feasible or not, so I’d be interested to see how you go!

    I imagine that the sort of accommodation you want and your general itinerary would impact the sort of budget you want.

    Yeah I think $20,000 is probably about the right amount if you watch what you spend, I’m just paranoid haha

    I understand completely – imagine going all that way and running out of money! So not fun!! I’m hoping I’ll have more than that when I go, cause I sure as hell don’t want to miss out on anything cause my fundage ran out fingers crossed. When are you going?
