Travel Costs

How much does it cost to Travel the World? We’re finding out as we make our way around the globe, one country at a time. It’s easy to burn through all your hard-earned savings when you travel long-term, so we track all of our spending on the road and record our monthly outgoings here to keep on eye on what we’re spending. We also hope our travel cost posts will help other travellers budget for their trips.

We all want to make our hard-earned travel savings last as long as we can on the road, but when Andrew and I got to Indonesia we became obsessed with spending as little as possible, with disastrous results – here’s how becoming travel budget fanatics almost ruined our trip.

We kicked off our travel adventure with a month-long trip around New Zealand. Here’s a breakdown of our New Zealand travel costs,  from food and accommodation to activities and transport. 
We knew that our travel adventure wasn’t going to come cheap – that’s why we’ve been saving for this trip for three years. It’s also the reason why I’m securing freelance work before I even leave the country to ensure we continue to make a tiny bit of cash while we’re on the road.
