I don’t know where you are, but in the US there are guide books called “London for $90 a day” “Paris…” etc. I believe they include thing that contiki provides, like accomodations. I would pick up a couple of those books. It will give you an idea of how to have fun cheaply.
Best of luck,
Hey, yeh i agree with stagegirl, i picked up a lonely planet book a few years ago called europe on a shoestring.
I’m looking at having about $100 aus each day of the tour so pretty similar to what your looking at and i’m thinking it will be enough to cover what i want to do.
Yeah I’ve got Lets Go and Lonely Planet so I’m set for my non-contiki travel budgets, its just while on contiki I’m not sure about. Things like eating, drinks, entry etc.
I’m getting the idea a lot of people go nuts while they are on tour, but because I’m travelling after I won’t be able to. Just wanted to see how out of it I will be!
Hey I had exactly the same problem today! I was booking my trip and asked the travel agent how much a day did they think would be appropriate (not including optionals) and hen I explained to her that I thought the 100 euro explained on Contiki was a little high and that I felt I could do it for 50 euro. Then she was like ya you could but you really want to? (kind of condesendingly) And I was like ya I do! And she was like well you might never get to go back… and realisically, in the profession I am in, I will get to go back lots. I was trying o explain to her that I had the opportunity to travel with some friends after the trip if I managed to save money. She never really go it. Point is, I am not planning on drinking lots, just the occasional drink, I don’t wanna buy crappy souvenirs, mabye a couple postcards and mabye one nicer thing like a necklace or perfume or something and I do not ea very much! Usually once a day. I think it should be totally doable and I am going to do it just to spite the travel agent haha
