Budget for France & Spain autumn 2016

Again on this page we will be posting our proposed budget for the trip and update this on a regular basis.

This is now our day to day living, we have reduced our spending allowance to €15 per day as during the April trip we found that €20 a day was not needed the biggest cost saving is Diesel and Tolls as the mileage is reduced by approx. 2000 miles and we don’t plan to use any tolls.

The budget for 70 days will be €4180

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

Diesel:  400

Tolls:      0

Campsites:   70×19             1,330 (using ASCI camping card sites and Aires)

Food:            70×20              1,400

Spending:    70×15              1,050

Total:                                     €4180

We actually came inside our budget this time by a whopping €872 which good news for future trips like this one, biggest saving again was actual spending money proving that if the weather is nice you tend not to spend any money.over the 8wks we ave. out at €413 inclusive of diesel and exclusive was €363
