Insight on budgeting

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

Myself and my S/O are budgeting about $7000 each for our trip to Europe. We have booked flights, as well as half of our hotels/apartments. Before we book the rest we just want to make sure we have enough left over for train travel and travel in each city, as well as for excursions, sightseeing and food.

Our costs are as follows (each)

- $1440 flights
- approx. $1400-1500 for accommodations (if we decide to spend a little extra on where we stay, this is subject to change based on your feedback)
- $300-500 for travel to and from each country/within each city

This leaves us each with approx. $120-140 each per day to spend on food and sightseeing.

I am worried that this is cutting it close, please let me know what you suggest is a good amount to budget for food and sightseeing each day. Thanks in advanced!

Our itinerary is as follows. Each day is subject to change, I just listed possible things to do in each city.
