Hey Y'all,

Need some serious help.Thinkin of doing europe for two months from mid july to mid september but need a hand working out the financials.I'd probably grab an interrail ticket, so taking out transport,does anyone know how much would I need on a daily basis if I was camping/hostelling?Anyone know how much beer/food would be?(I'm Irish,the beer price is as important as the food!!!)
Starting in Lisbon through major cities in Spain,france,Italy,switzerland,austria,Czech rep. and finishing up at the Oktoberfest in Munich.

A rough estimate from an experienced hand would be brilliant help! I'd be much obliged.

Many Thanks,

The Lonely Planet Western Europe Guidebook says to expect 30 Euros/day for budget travellers, 90 euros/day for mid grade, and no cap for all the luxuries.

I am figuring around 15-20 euros for hostels, 10-15 for food (may be a little more), the rest of my 50 euro/day budget will be museums and transportation.

hey yeah 15-20 euros per night for hostels

Beer in said countries range from cheap (Spain, Czech) 2 euros - to expensive (France, Swiss) 4-5 Euros.

Does interrail work in Swizterland? Make sure cause Trains in Swiss are sooooooooooooooooo expensive.

Oktoberfest - make sure u book asap for a hostel in Munich (Meninger Hostel on Landsberger is close to the site)

Food - Shop at grocers. Lidl is the best option!

Thanks for the replies.I was thinking of a budget of 40 euros a day.I think it would sufficient enough.

Just browsing through this thread, but I thought I'd say that inter-rail definitely works in Switzerland and you don't need to pay supplements of any kind.
