FYI - For a family of 4 (housing, food, transportation) we spent about $70 per day in SE Asia, $100 in China, $220 in Singapore, $160 in Japan, $200 in Australia, $200 in New Zealand. You could do it more cheaply but we were staying at Airbnb's not hostels which accounted for the majority of the daily cost. To stay on budget we spent more time in SE Asia and less time in other, more expensive, countries. The cost of food in Australia and New Zealand was expensive. *Not including airfare between countries.
Walked from London to Istanbul when i was 22(boat to France) 3 months sleeping in a tent wherever i could put it up ( fields, sides of motorways, parks etc.) eating cheap pasta, sardines etc. Left with £85 pounds. Rang home after 3 months for airplane ticket . If you really want to you could travel the world on £1000 just be careful.
I want to travel so bad, and I make about 3000/ a month and once I pay off my debt my bills/rent are going to be around 750/month. I’m about to work saturdays too for that overtime and save every dollar I make.
I'm Kenyan and travelling around the world is my dream though I've never left Kenya. sadly, its a hard dream to realize for those of us who come from lower income countries. For westerners, 20k USD is fairly inexpensive but here its a huge challenge with the average monthly wage being below 100 USD. your channel inspires me a lot and I hope that one day my dream comes true.
Hi. My name is Ana and we are from the travel channel of ZapatillasPorElMundo. Right now we just published our collection of videos from India and I was looking at material from other colleagues ... that's why I gave with your channel and here I stay.
I invite you to know India through our eyes.
Hola. Mi nombre es Ana y somos del canal de viajes de ZapatillasPorElMundo. Justo ahora acabamos de publicar nuestra colección de vídeos de India y estaba mirando material de otros compañeros... por eso dí con tu canal y por aquí me quedo.
Te invito a conocer India a través de nuestra mirada.
I stayed in university housing in southern Wales, United Kingdom. I had my own room and bathroom, and then shared a kitchen with 5 other people. Although I booked the largest room they had, it cost around $35- $40 per night to stay there (smaller rooms with smaller beds were less expensive). But, the location was walkable to everything I could need. And there were dozens of trains, per day, that could take me anywhere I wanted to go in the UK. So, because of that reason, I lived in university housing in Wales for 3 months this year (and I am 52 years old).
I figured around 12-15,000.00 for a year. Luckily for me I am retiring in the next year or two, and I am planning on selling my house and just hitting the road and seeing where it takes me. I won’t have to work, but I will have to watch my nickels. Peace and love.
I know you guys are traveling single or with adults, but do you have any tips for a single person traveling with a young child. Are there hostels that allow children? Ways to get cheaper tickets when buying for two? Activities in these countries that’s work for mother and daughter, etc??
You guys are awesome and inspiring!!
Just a tip for London:
DON'T stay in London, stay OUTSIDE THE CITY, you can get an *Oyster Card* which will give you discounts on train fairs and you can easily get up to London in 20 mins or so, but do a *lil bit of research* .
I travelled around the world for four years. I used a working holiday visa in the UK --got to live like a local and then used the strong pound to travel from Nepal overland back to Europe. I worked as an aupair in Vienna, got another working visa for New Zealnd --where I picked apples for money and lived in a van. I spent a year In Ecuador as a student living in an indigenous village, and worked on an archaeological dig in Belize. This was in my early 20s I never had more than $5000 in my bank account--but I managed to have great experiences! Now, in my 30s --I travel with more luxury--(airBnBs instead of hostles) but I make more $ than when I was 20-which is also a fun way to travel.
Hi there. I have a little question.. With these round the world tickets - can you decide for yourself when you want to fly to the next destination or do we have to follow a strict plan that is made before the trip? Nice video btw.. keep it up guys!
Thank you for the tips. My family and I recently spent three weeks in Europe by using air miles from our credit cards. Not everyone likes credit cards, but we have a business and have to spend the money on it anyway. So we figure why not get the points for travel. :) My family and I love to travel together; explore and try and try new foods. I'm taking notes so we can do more of it. :) - Michelle
I find that around the world tickets are not worth the money (at least not for me)...these were my flights from Sept.17-March18:
Flights of my Trip
in € all with 40kg (2 bags) of luggage (because I'm carrying a lot of sports gear) unless stated otherwise...
searched on google flights, booked directly through the airlines and never more than 2 months ahead of time, usually more between 4 and 2 weeks...(Airports) are stops where I didn't leave the airport
KBV-(SIN)-DPS-(SIN)-KBV 197,46 (carry-on only)
SIN-SYD-SIN 232,39 (carry-on only)
TOTAL 2161,27 € and all the freedom of movement (Europe to AUS, to NZ, to AUS, to Thailand, to Bali, to Thailand, to AUS, to Singapore, to Europe and to Brasil)
I will be travelling around Europe for a year with my boyfriend in a van for £15000!!! So exited!
We won't have to pay for accommodation and we will be cooking in our van kitchen! So we should have enough money to do lots of fun stuff! :)
1995, trip around the world. Excellent hotels, cities, restaurants, 60 days, $15,000, or about $200 per day, first class. Could have been cheaper hotels, cheaper food. $100 for travel, plane, trains, ground, taxis, saved and budgeted as going along, $100 per day for hotel and food, covers everything. Australia, Bali, Java, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, India, Egypt, Greece, Italy, home. Best 60 days of my life, exceeded my wildest dreams. Cancer death wish trip, 90% death rate cancer, smooth muscle tissue of the lower bowel. Climbed the pyramids (strictly forbidden) and did all the great stuff. Still alive 23 years later. Go to have my prayer answered to see my two children graduate from college. Got my three wishes, motorcycle, world trip, wilderness nature retreat in Northern Minnesota. I was lucky. I outlived Steve Jobs with his cancer. I consider long life better than $6 billion. Follow your bliss. When you do the life you think you ought to be living becomes the life you are living. Good luck to us all.
Awesome video Vagabrothers! You guys have a ton of great tips for everyone. I have a possible tip for you guys and anyone else interested. Airstayz is a comprehensive solution that incentivizes travelers, hotels and local businesses to connect on a single platform. Worth looking into if you travel a lot! A lot of hotels already utilize this!
Thanks for sharing! You're so talented. I love to travel also:)I not long ago revealed my first ever video - My travel diary in Queenstown. Eep!Would certainly adore your pointers on my video/editing so that I can develop like you!
I did it on £17k UK. That's about $23000 US.
I spent 5 months in NZ and had a car the whole time, so fuel was a big part of my budget.
SE ASIA can be done really cheaply if you hostel it.
Japan was as expensive as uk.
When I hit America on eay home I lived in hotels in LA, San Fran and Vegas.
It could be done much cheaper but I'm older and lived it up a bit....
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.
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 :)
