Planning A Trip To Scotland.

Jump to last reply

Hello all! I'm wanting to plan a trip to Scotland to meet up with a good friend. I'll be doing this spring of next year and need to see how much I need to put away for said trip. I'm 19 so I'm not loaded by any means haha. but I am putting an est around 2500-2600 dollars. to cover flight round trip. and meals I suppose. I'm going to be staying with a friend so I'll want to buy some food. but car is not needed. and motel room is not needed (Thankfully)

So if I'm not mistaken I'll have to cover the flight, and I'm sure a taxi to go to the friends house. and some meals. I'm planning a 5 week trip all in all. Which brings a thought to mind. would it be cheaper to buy two tickets one there and then one when I'm ready to come back or a packaged round trip ticket?

I'm not too sure if I'll be doing sight seeing while I'm there and if so then just local stuff. so I'm going to put a ideal price on spending amount around 500 usd. about 350BPS give or take a few. and I'd like to see flight cost around 1,683-2K flat. I looked up prices today and that's what I'm getting on a booking sight. but I'm sure they're not the best way to do it. I've also got a few friends at a few air ports that said to let them know when I'm ready and they can help me get the best price.

So Am I asking too much for too little. or should I be able to make something work. I really need to take this trip but I also don't want to use a lot of money doing so. so I'm looking for the best way of doing so.

Best regards~Zachary.
