What budget do you need as a couple to travel for one year? The answer depends on many factors. Which destinations you have planned? What travel standards you are aiming? Will you work during the trip?
You need a consequent amount of money on your account if you want to make shure not to come back earlier then it was planned.
| CALCULATE THE COSTS
To get an idea of the life costs in different countries, we rade many traveller’s blog. Thanks to a simple excel table we were able to approximate the global cost of the traveling part. To calculate the total amount we still had to add the price of long distance flights, visa, vaccins, medicine and insurance. Thanks to this calculation we could fix the departure datt to the time we would have saved enough money. Finally we leave with 15000€/pers wich let’s us a little room of 1000€ for improvisation. For those who are interested, you’ll find the details about the expenses in the table below.

We manage to to keep track of our expanses thanks to a phone app called Spendee. You can check the useful app section to learn more about it.
Time to time we are working for some people and get free accommodation and food. We find the job offers on the workaway web page. We did our first couchsurfing experience in Marocco and will definitely do it again. Those sharing adventures allow us to save some money, build nice friendships and make the trip more entertaining!
We’ll let you know at the end of the trip if the calculation was right.
