In the first part of this post series we have revealed our average daily expenses and on what we usually spend it. In this post we want to look at our average daily expenses in different countries.
Some preliminary remarks
Although we did our best in bookkeeping, the following comparison is not entirely fair or true. Especially the expensive end of the list must be treated with caution. Short stays together with a lot of driving (i.e. high costs for diesel) and expensive activities have bumped the price tag on Greece or Montenegro, for example. That is why country specific cost break downs will follow.
On the other hand, the top half of the list is very much true for our style of traveling. tthe amount would probably be the same, if you go there again.
Costs that are not shown
We have excluded all costs that cannot be attributed to a single country. That contains costs for
- vehicle maintenance and repairs
- equipment (clothing, shoes, tools, surf boards we bought along the way)
- shipping costs
In our case, these not shown costs make another 27.18 € daily. If you do not need to do expensive repairs, do not fly or ship your vehicle and you leave home with everything you need, this amount can drop to less than 10 € a month of pure vehicle maintenance.
So here it is, the full list. Note that we have excluded all the countries in Europe where we just drove through, only stopping for fuel.
All prices are daily averages for two people.
As we said earlier, there are several factors that influence the price tag on a single country. To get the full picture, please visit our single country spending evaluations, as well! If you have further questions or remarks, please leave a comment.
