LONDON, May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
It is hard to plan your holiday according to what other people say; someone's money saving advice may actually wind up punching a hole in your wallet. After all what one person says is cheap might not be so cheap to another. To this end NatWest have launched the Holiday Spend Calculator to make drawing up a holiday budget much easier. Taking information from trusted sources -Expatisan and Numbeo - they have put together a list of average costs for a range of items including a bottle of wine, a meal for two and theatre tickets from 25 locations.
This is a perfect opportunity to really get to grips with how much your holiday spending could be.
6 a.m. Bedtime
If you are out to have a good time and party to the late a.m. then the top three items on your purchase list would be:
- Alcoholic drink
- Fast food
- Taxi Trip
According to the Holiday Spend Calculator, Siem Reap, Bangkok, Beijing, Berlin, Barcelona and Buenos Aires are the cheapest party holiday destinations.
Couples tend to go for a more romantic and relaxed holiday, enjoying time away from their busy ordinary lives. It wouldn't be necessary to go all out for the cheapest deal, but it's good to know how much an average meal for two costs, theatre tickets for date nights and the average cappuccino for morning ambling.
An adventure holiday might be more your sort of thing. Items to price could include bus tickets, toiletries and daily food essentials (bread/milk/water). Although a backpacker holiday is usually a lot cheaper, an indication of how much a 3* hotel costs also gives a good idea of the average cost of your accommodation.
Whether you are a bargain hunter or the princess of the high street, knowing how much Levis 501 jeans, trainers and mid-afternoon cappuccinos cost is bound to be on the top of your budget agenda. Have a look at the NatWest tool, it might sway your next shopping destination!
Whether you are looking to hang out in the Big Apple or enjoy the bays of Buenos Aires, the NatWest Holiday Spend Calculator is an excellent guide to how much that trip will cost you.
