How much would it cost to travel Europe?

5000 euro is more than enough to visit all those countries if you are willing to do some research.

Now If you wanna sleep in nice hotels, eat in nice restaurants and do some other activities that will cost you money you'll probably need more than that, but for a comfortable trip 5000(euro, not dollars) would be enough.


I'm from Europe and I've visited almost all those countries and I never needed to spend that much money.

Last year I visited like 15 cities in Italy plus Barcelona, Austria and Paris all in a row and i spent around 2000 on everything including flights.

So my point is, if you want to travel and really experience the places and their traditions at the max while being super comfortable and eating like a king then you should wait until you have some more money.

If you want to travel just to get to know the countries and for the experience of it then you can do it with less money.
That makes sense, how much would be enough to travel like a king?
 
Oh btw.. Avoid Indian restaurants (since you are used to Indian food) in these places in general. They are just total ripoffs. Neither do their food taste like Indian food (with some exceptions though. Not all of them are bad), nor do they offer cheaper meal option. You will be much better off trying local cuisine. It is almost always cheaper, and you get to try new foods.
 
It really depends on what you expect from this trip. I'd advise not having a tight budget, since you want to experience and take everything in that you can.
If I'd plan such a trip, I would probably calculate no less than 5.000€.

I am thinking of eating street food, veggies and fruits and McDonald's or Domino's, pizza and stuff. But I will try local cuisine too.
 
If any cash would be left then I would checkout one more eastern European city. Most probably Prague or Austria
Austria is a country and it is located in Central Europe.
Make sure you visit Budapest.
 
If you book ahead of time and know how to pack light (less than 7kg carry-on only) you can score 15-30$ flight deals with Ryanair. (Ryanair preys on stupid people who overpack, don't be one of them)
NEVER travel during busy seasons.
Stick to cheap hostels and Airbnb, find people to travel with, and share costs. (When I was in Barcelona for 2 weeks with a friend, I only spent 250€ in total on Airbnb, food and more).
Couchsurfing is also really good though I have only tested that in New Zealand. Great way to meet people and find a place to crash for free.
Cook your own food.

Europe is only expensive if you want to stay at hotels, eat at restaurants and spend money on tourist attractions.
 
Just wanna say, really impressed to know that you are planning to explore Europe before 20 as an Indian...

I m 19 yr old Indian too and this like my dream trip too..
Will work hard and make it possible soon...

Just started seeing my thing workout on IM..

GOOD Luck on your Journey Bhai!
 
What is your real goal, it is 90% of the answer. If you want really meet people and meet Europe, then Couchsurfing is the best - 0$ for room and with it you will really meet local people. When you visiting some town and sleep in the hostel, you meet a working guy in the hostel and walls of buildings, but with couch surfing, you will core meet local people, behavior, their stories, and real life.

I really want to do that but I am a little concerned about my safety.

Thanks dost, i wish we both could go together lol.
 
I know I could travel Europe for 3 months with that amount. If you're not looking for partying all the time and going to overpriced restaurants that are there for stupid tourists who don't really appreciate life like they should, then you'll be fine. Paris and Amsterdam are the most expensive places in the list, and I have friends in Switzerland that tell me it's worse there. In Paris for instance, I paid 20 euros for a coke and a beer. You'd pay less than 5 euros for the same thing in Belgium, for example. Like I said, you could spend a week in Lisbon for less than 150 euros. Same for Athens. Roma is a little more expensive, but I spent like 200 euros over 4 days and I visited the Colisseo, the Forum, the Vatican Museum and ate delicious spaghetti in a high standing restaurant. So you see, I'd spend 400 euros visiting 3 cities in two weeks.
Is it really this cheap to travel?

It depends on what you want to do. If you want to live in luxury and book high standing hotels and eat at high standing restaurants and spend money on cocktails and alcohol in cities such as Paris or Amsterdam, you need a few thousands dollars. But if you keep it simple and actually travel to see the beauty, the culture and the history of some places, it doesn't have to be expensive at all. I've seen incredible places, met extraordinary people, and never got broke. And I've done this multiple times, not just once. So yeah, it can be cheap.

Yes, it is true, but you can check feedbacks, apply only with 50+feedbacks for example. When you apply on someplace and owner accepts, the whole world this notice and know, all know where you are. Couchsurfing is for people who want to really introduce local culture, owners like to talk and meet other people too, it is not for people who not like talk and share experience it is dynamic process, two way, they give you room, they want new friend, new story, you get free room, and their stories.

Excluding your flight to and from India and internal flights/train rides among cities, expect to spend $80-$120 per day including food, lodging and transport. Of course it will not cover fine dining or 4-5 star hotels but good enough for street foods, kebab shops, tabac stores and cafes and Airbnb or hotels near tourist districts.
Always rent airbnb or hotel near tourist districts in cities like Paris, Rome, Venice and you can cover most of the popular places on foot. It's more fun this way. Europe is not very expensive if you plan your trip properly. Bon voyage :)
 
depending on your budget, you could stay at hostels that cost less then 15 euros a night
