12 Mar 2013 Rosey asked


Besides the initial costs of the actual trip and flights, I'm wondering what the reccomended amount I should try have for per day everywhere we go? I understand itll be different, but I just kinda want an idea! Im thinking of doing a Contiki in August, and a camping one. Havent decided which one yet!! HELP PLEASE :))

    Depending on what tour you are doing and how long for, I would budget for $100-$150 a day just to be safe.

    I’m going on a 25 day tour in August and I’m saving enough to have atleast $200 a day :-)

    I’d also recommend having an emergency stash of money which is accessible via some card for emergencies! or… buying that awesome souvenir that you wont even come across again.
