I know this is a pretty general question and people can travel on £200, £2000 or whatever, but I would like to know it from your own personal experience.
Roughly how much money did you spend(flights.taxes,accom etc) on your RTW trip in total and how long were you travelling for? If you havent been on your trip yet and are just planning it, how much do you intend to take away with you.

Hi Rob

Me and my partner we be setting off in a month or so. We intend to travel for upto 12 months. (or until the money runs out)!
We will have approx £9000 each (the price of our tickets is coming out of this). Some people have said this is plenty as long as we are careful with it. So no 5 star hotels!!!
Our plan is to start off in Bangkok then onto Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Indonisia, Oz, NZ and Fiji. We will be getting working visa's for Oz, just in case we need a little extra cash.

How long do you intend to travel for? Have you made any plans as to where your going?

hi kirstie, sounds like we have very similar plans! I will be going away with my girlfriend in about 8-10 months, pretty much the same route as you but also doing a road trip in america. Im hoping to have about £9000 too, have almost 5k already so well on my way! The only thing i worry about is spending alot of time in usa, oz and nz where i my money will dissapear alot quicker.
