Budget questions

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Paris and London towards the end of April/beginning of May and I'm trying to figure out how much to budget for exactly.

Plane tickets to and from, and hostels (which include free breakfast) are paid for already; and for what it's worth, I'm a woman in her late 20s traveling alone.

I do not drink (wine included) and I've never liked being in clubs, so bars/drinking/going clubbing are not things I will be partaking in. Other than a few trinkets here and there I don't plan on doing any major shopping (blasphemy coming from a woman, I know) and I have a few food allergies which have me paranoid enough to probably hold off on having major meals and eating outside of foods I know are "safe" for me. I mostly just want to walk around and visit a few museums and usual tourist spots.

Some friends suggested around $1000 would be enough for the week in Paris, would that be enough? Also, on average, how much should I look to spending on metro/bus (I'll take a cab if need be, but I'd rather leave it as a last resort).

Thanks!
