tOur 2015 Denmark, Sweden and Germany Trip Budget

In the interest of comparison, I’ve decided to take a look at our budget and expenses for our 2015 Europe trip. You can read about our 2016 Japan budget here. We knew we wanted to go back to Europe after spending two weeks in Ireland, London and Paris the year before. We weren’t sure where we would go, so we watched for airfare deals in countries we might want to visit. When a good deal on a flight to Copenhagen popped up we jumped on it. Scandinavia is well known for being pricey, but was definitely on our bucket list. We had heard wonderful things about Berlin, so we added a week in Germany. Once again, there were three adults and the trip was my treat. So here’s what we spent:

Airfare (American)                                            1954.

Hotels: Copenhagen (3 Nights)                       460.
Stockholm (3)                                                      354.
Hamburg (2)                                                        361.
Copenhagen Airport(1)                                     267.

Airbnb Berlin(5 nights)                                     459.

Total                                                                   $8677

 

The conclusion? This was a 14 day trip for 3 adults. We averaged $620 per day and $2892 per person. Again, certain expenses were shared, so the average doesn’t reflect what a single traveler would pay. Compared to our Japan trip(18 days, $7989 total, $444 per day,$2663 per person) we spent quite a bit more. I’d say we’re learning.
