Budget Your Trip is growing fast! A few years ago, we were hoping to gather travel cost data for over one thousand cities. Now, at the end of 2014, we have travel costs for over 2,800 cities around the world, in over 170 countries!
Vagabondish recently posted a great article about budget travel and the idea of “stereotypical backpackers” which we felt was worth sharing. It essentially states that just because you’re traveling on a budget and staying at cheap hotels or hostels does not mean that you’re a grubby and party-going backpacker. (more…)
Thanks to you, intrepid travelers of the world, Budget Your Trip now has travel budget data for over 1,500 cities! From La Paz to Ulaanbataar, travel conscious visitors can expand their options by realistically knowing the costs involved for even more cities than ever before. We’ve also grown the amount of budget information for the most popular travel destinations such as Paris, Italy, and New York, adding to the accuracy and completeness of the world’s most visited locations. Whether you’re backpacking or taking a luxury vacation, Budget Your Trip can help you plan your travel costs now more than ever.
Are you about to go somewhere far flung and exotic? Help us expand into the most far reaching regions of the world. Our goal is to have 2,000 cities by 2012. And the only way to get there is with your help!
Thanks everyone! With your support, we’re growing, and we couldn’t do it without all of you.
We’ve been working hard lately and crunching a lot of numbers. We pulled out the old statistics textbook and studied it thoroughly. We forced the planets to line up, the atoms to quantitate, and our cat to land butter-side up. The end result is a new mathematical and statistical method for calculating the average daily costs here at Budget Your Trip. Now, our travel budget will be more accurate than ever. (more…)
