    Even in the same region, prices may vary from country to country. For example Sweden is slightly cheaper than Norway and Eastern European countries are super cheap, also Costa Rica is more expensive than Nicaragua, but you'll have a better attention in Costa Rica since it's a more developed country when it comes to tourism.
    So I guess the amount of money you'll need will depend of the destinations you choose, for how long you wanna travel and if wanna do it as a backpacker or a more fancy traveler.
    I think that if you know how to budget 10k a year is good cash.

    Good video, but are you forgetting bills at home that still need paying while away? such as, rent, subscriptions, utilities and in the UK, council tax. If you still live with parents, no problem but not everyone has a free ride at home.

      +Brocklod Hi, It's a local tax we have to pay yearly based on type of property you live in. All homes are put into bands (categories) and what you pay is assessed by the band. The tax is meant to pay for amenities.

      Dave H what's council tax? I'm just curious because I've seen some English mentioning it.

    Will definitely try to use the websites you guys suggested, thank you! planning to travel for a couple of months, I’m super excited at the same time concerned about the budget. But oh well, as you’ve said in your other video we need to hit that bucket list whilst we can and not wait until we retire, life is too short 😊

    Travel when you're young. Short trips cost more than long ones. There are ways to make money while travelling. Try couchsurfing or switching apartments. Leave your attitude, fears and prejudgements home and learn to live in the moment.

    I've hitchhiked and/or worked for transport on boats, ships and planes around the world. Often solo pilots just want someone to talk to on private planes. You can work yachts as crew. Cruise ships will sometimes take you on if you're willing to work in the galley or help entertain guests, etc. There's plenty of creative ways to reduce or eliminate transport over the oceans if you're not in a hurry and not picky about where you'll end up. It's the difference between being a tourist or traveler. Let serendipity rule and it'll be a lot more fun and interesting.

    I‘m currently traveling Southeast Asia and spent around 1300€ for 6 weeks. I did spend a lot of time in hostels and eating streetfood, but going to Full Moon Party and scuba diving in Thailand probably bumped up my costs a bit. It’s still cheap all things considered :)

    If you’re a “true” Bob Marley fan (who isn’t?), then you have to check out the Bob Marley Museum in 9 miles, St. Ann, Jamaica.It’s a hell of a ride through the hills, on some of the worst roads you’ll ever see. But once you get there, you’ll enjoy how crisp and fresh the air is.It’s also crazy to think that such a great man could come from such a remote, humble place.Please check out It was created out of the love for Jamaica, and our intense desire to share that appreciation with as many people as possible. Our drivers can’t wait to share the sights and culture of Jamaica as they transport you to your next adventure, whether it’s visiting a hidden waterfall, one of the island’s breathtaking beaches, or the birthplace of our own Bob Marley.

      bluewolfe96 I think that's quite a good deal, considering the fact that you had to spend in the car's fuel so I guess for someone using only buses or even hitching it will be much less, still don't get why people keep thinking you have to be super rich to travel like that.

    • bluewolfe96
      bluewolfe96 23 часа назад

      I had a car in NZ for 5 months, so obviously fuel added quite a bit to the budget. When I was in SE ASIA I bussed it and used the trains which are really cheap compared to uk.
      Also stayed 8n hotels for my last 10 days in USA.

    I’m American, and I started long-term traveling by quitting my retail job to work a seasonal job in Juneau, Alaska for 6 months. It was by far the best time I’ve had in my entire life, thus far. After the Alaskan summer season, I went home for 2 months & earned an au pair visa, and now I’m in Madrid, Spain. Au pairing is definitely a great way to travel bc you earn pocket money and have no bills (you live w/a host family that provides you a private room and all of your meals). The only problem I encountered was a personal one - I missed nature like crazy, and didn’t get along well w/the big city that is Madrid, so I’ll soon volunteer in a hostel that is for rock climbers!

    My personal experience for anyone starting from scratch is getting a job on cruise ship. It allows you to earn money and travel,but most importantly you meet a lot of people from around the world. Make friends and boom accommodation and local knowledge is sorted cutting down on some major costs.

This was in September so technically a low season. Cost of water really adds up too!

    If your on a tight budget, especially if your traveling in North America or Europe, try freight hopping. Yes, it is technically illegal, but it saves a fortune and is way more fun than riding a train normally. Just don't get caught... I learnt that the hard way when I got arrested in California. Lol

    40k will take me 4 years to accumulate base on my salary. Although I would love to travel the world 1 whole year. I prefer to travel throughout my life (also because I love my job too). What I can do now is travel in my region fairly cheap since I live in Central America. I also get to travel every year because of my job so I that's why I also love my job. I encourage everyone to consider traveling Central and South America, I can attest to it being cheap. Although I have mainly traveled through Guatemala and Honduras, my family have been traveling since before I was born and every year since (that's because my family consists of 7 ppl). Note: we would travel twice a year (Easter and December - not summer because we used that time to save for our trip in December). A year without traveling for me is not a good year so even though traveling a whole year is my ultimate goal and I would love to and I will not too far from now, I think it can be done cheaper. Trust me, book one flight then go from there along the way you will meet locals and tourists who have found cheaper ways to travel on land or by sea!!!!

    Good tips for Europe, go off peak, four people traveling can hire one car and split the fuel, easier and cheaper than public transport. Eurocamp and Canvas holiday out of season are very cheap, you can get up to six in a mobile home. Ten quid a night after tenth September in Saint Tropez. Bulgaria is cheaper than Thailand hide in Bulgaria until you get to off peak in France.
