Budget for April to July 2016

On this page we will be posting our proposed budget for the trip and update this on a regular basis for those people wishing to see whether our Management skills honed over the years  analysing the P+L’s have paid off.

The budget   £5000 or for the ease of budgeting €6500 for 90days

This is split down to the following (all in €)

Diesel:                                    1,000

Tolls:                                      100

Campsites:   90×19             1,710 (using ASCI sites)

Food:             90×20              1,800

Spending:     90×20              1,800

Total:                                     €6,410

This is tight but remember it is an experiment to a lifestyle not a holiday.

Running total:  € 3533 (excluding diesel and tolls which are all in line with mileage  currently done )

[easy_chart chart_id=’3461′]

So the final figures have been accounted for and the break down is the following.

Campsites: budget 1710 actual 1278 difference -432

Food: budget 1800 actual 1271 difference -529

Spending(inclusive of eating out): budget 1800 actual 984 difference 736

Diesel: budget 1000 actual 879 difference 121

Tolls: budget 113 actual 116 difference +3

Final total is under budget by €1896  which we think is brilliant and bodes well for future trips. taking away diesel which of course is the big variable according to where we go, we Ave out at an amazing €42 per day

Converted back to £ taking the € at 1.25 equals £33 per day……… Oh yes we can do this
