About Budget Your Trip

A Vacation Planning and Travel Budgeting Tool

Budget Your Trip helps you plan and track your travel budget. Our destination search lets travelers find cities and countries around the world and then displays typical travel costs for budget, midrange, and luxury styles of travel. Travelers planning a trip can register to set up their own travel budget, and predict their future travel expenses. Those who are already on the road can use the website to monitor their current spending habits.

The budgets created by travelers are used to anonymously calculate average costs for cities around the world. (Read more about how the numbers are calculated.)

For example, here's a trip budget created for a vacation: A Week In Tokyo. And here are average daily costs for Venice calculated from many different trips.

With Budget Your Trip, you can:

Estimate Your Travel Costs

Search for travel costs by city, country and budget type. Travel budget estimates are generated from real world travel expenses from other travelers, so costs are up-to-date and reflective of what fellow travelers are actually spending.

Plan Your Travel Budget

Plan your personal travel or vacation budget. Travel costs you provide are broken down into categories (accommodation, food, etc.) and shown with tables and charts.

Track Your Travel Expenses
