Budget: What does a trip around the world cost?
Before beginning the adventure of a trip around the world, there are various administrative and financial aspects to consider. The same is true with the monthly travel budget. Actual expenditures during the trip vary individually and depend significantly on the target destinations, length of the trip, type of housing, and individual lifestyle.
As a rule of thumb, for a rather simple lifestyle allow CHF 1260–CHF 1470 per month. In addition to the monthly budget, a buffer of around CHF 10,000 for the return or financial emergencies is recommended. In addition, there are outlays for equipment (e.g. backpack or hiking boots), insurance, and visa fees.
