Deciding on a dream destination is easy, but planning a trip there isn’t. So, if you’re still finalizing plans and wondering how to make it all work around your budget, you’re at the right place.

Here are a few simple steps for creating a realistic travel budget:

Figure Out Your Travel Costs

The biggest expense you’ll have is the cost of traveling to your destination. This highly varies on where you’re traveling and the transport you’re choosing. Research various options and decide on an expected amount you’ll have to spend on flights, buses, trains, and rental cars.

Estimate Your Accommodation Costs

The next biggest expense you’ll have will be your accommodation. It might take you time to find the right place to crash within your budget. Research about various options available to you and if you want to choose reasonable options check out hostels, shared living places, and budget hotels.

Think of How You’ll Be Moving Around

Every destination you have in mind will have different ways to move around. You can explore your vacation spot on foot, or opt for public transport, taxis, or cycling. Whatever suits your tastes and falls within your budget.

Food Costs

You don’t have to list down what you’ll be eating but it’s a good idea to know how much a meal costs in the place you’re visiting. People who budget travel usually have a set amount of money that spend on food each day. Come to this number by using online resources and plenty of research.

Figure Out Your Activities

Then, have a vague idea of what you plan to do on your trip. Whether you’ll go on a hike, explore the city or spend a day at the beach, you should figure out if the activities you choose have costs or entry fees.

Emergency Money

Along with everything else, it’s highly recommended to set some money aside for unforeseen emergencies or circumstances where you may need extra cash.
