Planning to go overlanding in Albania and wondering how much you would have to spend? Here is an insight into how much we spent in this beautiful little country.
The good news is that overlanding Albania is not very expensive. With an average of 35.42 € a day, Albania was cost-wise somewhere in the lower midfield of the countries we visited on our trip.
Note that these 35.42 € do not include costs for vehicle maintenance and repairs, equipment we bought along the way, shipping and flights as those cannot be attributed to one single country. On average, we have spent an additional 27.18 € per day in these categories.
Here are our average spendings per day in Albania:
Looks like we ate out a lot and also spent much more on accommodation and camping than usual. The reason is, we spent several nights on a campground on the shore of Lake Shkodra, waiting for spare parts and two nights in a hostel in Tirana. As we were in the country for only 17 days, it is easy to find those costs in the total averages. Oh, another thing. Transport/Parking for 2.89 € a day is mostly the Lake Koman Ferry ride.
Also note that fuel is very expensive in Albania. In April 2018, Diesel cost 1.39 € per liter in Albania and was more expensive than in Switzerland, for example! But don’t worry, Albania is a small country and you are not going to cover huge distances.
For comparison, we have included the graph showing our daily average spendings of the whole trip below.
