How Much Does It Cost to Travel Greece – A Not-So-Budgetty Trip through Mainland Greece

How much does it cost to travel Greece on a budget? We will give you an indication of some of our spendings to show how expensive Greece is. Prices may vary from shop to shop, the prices indicated are the cheapest price we found. We spent some time in the Balkans before arriving to Greece. So far, the most expensive country was Croatia where we spent some time during August, the most expensive season of the year. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia were reasonably priced when we arrived in September.

How Much Does It Cost to Travel Macedonia – How Much We Spent in a Week

If you are planning a trip to Macedonia, it may help you to see how much it cost us. Although we didn't write down every single expense, we did keep track of prices to give an indication of prices in different areas of the country. We arrived in Skopje at midnight from Podgorica.

A Roadtrip through Czech Republic in March

With great sunny weather and high temperatures, it seemed like summer started early this March. So, we felt like having some days off after enduring the long, bitter winter and we decided to go on a roadtrip. There are many car rental shops around the town. We normally prefer to just walk in and handle things with cash (that's usually the best way to negotiate the price) but here, they prefer to have their bookings done online by a third party. We found holidaycars.com to have the best prices. We didn't take the cheapest car, but we took one that was a little bigger (a brand-new Škoda Fabia) so we'd have more space for sleeping. It cost us € 115 for 8 days (the cheapest car … (Continue reading)
