How it works

One of the first questions anyone asks when planning a trip is how much will it cost?

Backpackers are a little different to your average holidaymaker as they're prepared to and generally forced to live on a budget.

Our budgets have been drawn from our own experiences, backpackers on the road right now and the most up to date resources available.

What’s included in a daily budget?

Our budgets are based on....dorm accommodation, eating like a local, drinking in moderation and taking in basic sights.

Obviously we're all different and so we give you the chance to apply your own preferences. Don't drink, want a private room, cook for yourself. Tell us and we'll apply a weighting to your daily budget.

I’ve created by budget...what next?

Once you've created your trip and planned your budget you can save it for reference or share it with the world to boast and maybe entice some mates to join you.

Go ahead and get started....
