Hi Guys,

Would you offer me an advice on my travel plans?I am traveling from Great Britain and looking to travel to japan for two week then onto Thailand for two weeks then heading to New Zealand and hopefully work there for 4months, from there heading to Fiji/Hawaii and for the return to GB through Los Angeles. How much in the way of funds should i be looking at taking? would 1500 GBP cover just my expenses? Also has anyone had any dealing with Bunac? as i am looking to work in New Zealand with there Scheme or does anyone now of a better alternative? how about insurance packages can anyone recommend me a decent one for my trip? any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Thanks for you time Many Thanks Em.

1500 GBP, is that for just the flights? Or all the money you've got for the whole trip?

Because you'll be surprised just how expensive travelling in Japan is, AFAIK you need about 80 GBP daily. Multiply that by 14 and you are at 1120 GBP for just the 2 weeks in Japan without the flights. Fiji/Hawaii and Los Angeles are also quite expensive, I was told I would need at least 45 GBP per day in LA. Thailand is the only cheap place with 17-20 GBP per day.
