This is not the sort of thing you can easily work out, it really depends what kind of things you eat, where you stay etc. Im on a rtw ticket for 8 mths and Im in Asia firstly and staying as cheaply as possible not spending on hardly anything but food & drink & sightseeing, as I have NZ & USA at the end of my trip. I have GBP 6K in the bank for the entire trip. Im hoping I wont spend it all either!

Hi TJ.

It is hard to work out a budget for a rtw trip but if you put in a lot of research on the internet you can get a reasonable idea. I did this, set myself a budget of £5000 for about 4 months travelling (this is high but it was a budget I could pay for) and I spent near enough exactly as I intended.

Research is the key. For example you are going to Australia and New Zealand. Probably the best way to get around these places is by campervan. In this case, start getting quotes now - set up a standard email and blast all companies. On things like this, advance reservations save you loads of money - as long as you know you will definitely be in a certain place at a certain time.

The same goes for anything - car hire, hotels and hostels. It is far easier to research before you go than in an internet cafe somewhere.

These are just examples - destinations are also important. For example, clearly Aus/NZ will be more expensive than Thailand so work out time in places according to your available budget.

I have a website -snip- and it has a section on it about setting budgets which may help - have a look.

Dave.

i was planning on doing a similal rtw but have a query... is a week long enough in these places or is it better having less destinatyions and longer in each one?

For me personally I would rather spand a long time in one country and really get to know it. It depends where when and how much. If you don't think you will be doing this time of travel again try to cover more ground i guess. but one week is enough for lets say a city in each country maybe 2 - it depends what you are really interested in doing right?
