Europe And Morocco For $8000?

So I've created a draft of our itinerary for our family vacation next Summer. All of the prices are estimates since not all flights and hotels are bookable yet, so they could be higher or lower. We're spending a full 2 months in Europe with more than a month spent in Sweden (family reunion) The itinerary doesn't include the one month in Sweden since we will be staying at my mom's sister's place and of course, she'll show us around and we don't have to spend that much. My mom's total budget for the trip is less than $8000 (not including money for shopping and other things)

PS: We're a family of Three. So the budget is for all three of us.

What do you guys think? Is it too optimistic, will it cost more or will it cost less? Our last vacation in Asia (50 Days) costed us $11,000 (which also equals to around $73/ day per person and since we had a lot of family in the Philippines, we had to bring them presents, had parties, etc so my mom had to spent a lot of dough  Wink )

That's a lot of information to take in and I'm not even going to begin to analyse it!! What I will say though is that personally I wouldn't waste my time going to visit Stonehenge. I know there's a lot of history involved and a lot of "mystery" to the place (how the stones got there, who put them there, what they're for etc. - all stuff that most Brits probably studied in History lessons at school) and if that's what you're interested in then great, but if you're not, it's really just a load of stones in the middle of a field just off a busy road that will probably be overrun with tourists. I was just a kid the last time I went there, and somewhere in someone's loft there are black and white photos of my family posing on the different stones, but I understand that these days there are barriers preventing you from getting too close.

Personally I would suggest that the day you've set aside for visiting Stonehenge would be better spent going somewhere like Oxford, or Cambridge, or Bath, or Brighton (I prefer the latter two myself, especially Brighton), all easily reached by public transport in a day from London.

I will jump onto 2 specifics only ...:

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
Hotel/Lodging/Tours Summary

London: $560 (Hotel Only) 5 Days, 4 Nights

Have you actually confirmed this hotel rate for London during the Olympic Games ? If not, you are risking to pay the said amount of $ per night ...

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
What do you guys think? Is it too optimistic, will it cost more or will it cost less?

Actually I will not look at the single figures, but will reply in general, even though it will result in a little, but (hopefully friendly phrased and) stipulating criticism ...:

If you really need to know exactly down to the dime how much a 2-month-trip will cost you, then I shall put into question if it wouldn't be wiser to stay home (or with your relattives in Sweden).
Travelling independently means that one need to be flexible to changing conditions resulting in minor (or major) adaptations of costs. This is called "Having a budget for a trip" and there needs to be some range within that budget.

Having written the previous paragraph, I need to say that the trip you have put together here is massive. This is both positive and a negative statement.
"Positive", as you and your familiy will be able to see and experience numerous (!) highlights (albeit in a fairly condensed time frame).
"Negative", as the longer and diverse your trip is, the more chances will be there for something to go wrong, ultimately leading to extra expenses.

Overall you should ask yourself:
"Okay, here is our planned trip and these are the experiences we expect.
Now, is this expected experience worth to spend $8000 ?.
- If "NO" --> make adaptations like skipping the most expensive part and/or shortening the overall trip time.
- If "YES" --> Is the trip worth to spend $9000 ?"
Carry on in that style steadily increasing the cost figure until you reach the point where you say "No, the buck stops here !"

I know these will sound like grand words, but this procedure not only works for any trip but for most situations in life.
Evaluate for your self "effort" versus "experience/return/gain" and you will have a tool for making descisions.

Let me close my reply with the most important statement:
If your family can afford to spend that budget for that trip ...: Go for it. No regrets.

Overall it seems like a pretty good itinerary and you definitely managed to fit a lot out of your money. A couple of things I'd like to say.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
Flight 1
Stockholm, Sweden to London, United Kingdom
With a stopover at Talinn, Estonia
Airline: Estonian Air
Aircraft: Boeing 737-500
Business Class

TBH I don't think it's worth paying extra to fly J on intra-european flights as it's just an economy seat with the middle seat blocked off (of course you get better service & lounges etc.). It's up to you to figure out if it's worth the money.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
LONDON >>> PARIS by Rail
Eurostar
Standard Premier

Price: Approximately $178 / per person

Personally I found normal Standard class absolutely fine. If you book early it only costs 39 Pounds (63 USD) so that would save you over $300 there.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
Flight 4
Venice, Italy to Stockholm, Sweden
With a stopover in Riga, Latvia
Airline: airBaltic
Aircraft: Boeing 737-200, Boeing 737-500

or Czech Airlines via Prague (5 Hours Stopover, City Tour)

Considering the financial situation of BT at the moment, I think it would be wise to fly OK via PRG.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
Day 1: Rest, London City Tour
Day 2: Full Day in London
Day 3: Full Day in London / 2012 London Olympics
Day 4: Stonehenge and English Countryside
Day 5: London to Paris by Rail

As BAViscount said I don't think it's worth doing a day trip to Stonehenge. It's just a bunch of stones, not particular interesting IMO. Personally I would spend another day in London as I love the city but if you want to visit a quintessential British town than I would recommend Oxford (only an hour from London) or Bath.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Thread starter):
Day 5: Rome to Pisa, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Overnight at Pisa
Day 6: Pisa to Venice by Train, Afternoon and Evening in Venice
Day 7: Full Day in Venice

On Day 6 I would propose spending the day in Florence (Firenze) than taking a train in the evening to Venice. Personally I found Florence to be a lovely city and I think it's well worth the effort to take a slight detour even if you just visit the Duomo and go up to Piazzale Michelangelo where you'll be treated to fantastic views. There are frequent trains from both Pisa & Venice to Florence so It shouldn't be hard to plan.

Overall you've got a great itinerary and definately go!

The schedule only goes up to the first week of June, so no. If it gets too high, we could always stay at my mom's friend's place in London. She has several contacts around the area. Less than $200 is reasonable.

Thanks HT. This trip was supposed to be my graduation gift but I've decided that it'll be better if my grandparents could come here in the US for my graduation (2014) And we've been saving up for this, that's why we're going local this summer vacation. Thanks once again, really helpful.

I've been using Kayak for flight reference, so Ryanair doesn't show up. Do you know the approximate extra fees that we'll have to pay? Like baggage fees? I've been considering Ryanair, however, they fly to distant airports from the city center.

Yes, Icelandair usually has the cheapest prices on US-Europe flights with Finnair. But I'm hoping to fly on LH or AF on their A380. Both Icelandair and Finnair are only a couple bucks apart, though if I'd have to choose, AY seems to be the better option considering that they have complimentary meals.  



Thanks for all the tips. I appreciate it!

From what I remember the trip isn't particular scenic, even if it is you'll be travelling at around 180mph so you won't get to see much. As for Train vs Plane, If you're staying in Central London than definitely take the Train. It's quick (2.5 hours max), convenient and takes you directly to Central Paris so you don't need to haul your luggage from CDG or ORY .

Quoting JetBlue777 (Reply 6):

That's what I found out as well, especially transport, I think the train from Pisa to Florence is only about 7 Euro's and fares for Public Transport in Italian Cities are usually about 1 or 2 Euro's. Compared to NZ (and other places in the world) it's pretty cheap.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Reply 6):
Another question, what kind of scenery will I see traveling from Rome-Pisa-Florence-Venice?

I didn't travel between Rome & Pisa but I believe it's next to the sea. Between Pisa & Florence is nothing to talk about and Florence to Venice is mostly in tunnels though the approach into Venice via the sea bridge is quite cool.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Reply 6):

The Ryanair Fee Table is here
http://www.ryanair.com/en/terms-and-conditions#article19

Considering that you'll have to pay some pretty steep baggage fee's and you won't be flying from the main airport in both Venice (You'll fly from TSF which is 20kms from Venice) and Stockholm (NYO is a whopping 100kms from Stockholm) I think it's worth paying a little bit of a premium to fly with OK or BT.

Hope this helps.

I agree. But we might try Ryanair just for the heck of it, sometime around the trip. And my mom's sister lives in Orebro, Sweden, so I think NYO might be close than ARN.

Since they most likely will travel with checked-in luggage the presumed "cheapness" of FR will look different once you add all their ridiculous fees, levys and surcharges. Besides he does not appear on a super tight budget and travel should be fun so perhaps sacrificing dubious added value of flying business intra-Europe yet flying a decent airline could be a more resonable choice than to endure Ryanair and the gate nazis at STN who try to milk money out of people for "oversized" cabin luggage.

Quoting JetBlue777 (Reply 6):

Well, "free" is somewhat relative term considering you pay some 100 USD above the regular economy fare. And you get to ride a 737 classic even in Y. How long is your intended stopover at TLL? It's one of the most underrated cities in Europe and well worth stealing some time to spend at least a full day there (perhaps instead of Casablanca or Paris)

Quoting JetBlue777 (Reply 8):

If you want to try a decent European low-cost which does not ostentatively hate its fare paying customers, I'd choose easyJet instead. They serve primary airports, not hellholes in the middle of nowhere.

Why waste money on business class on such a short flight ? Had it been a longhaul flight ... by all means. But such a short trip ? Might aswell fly economy

Well I guess. Norwegian and British is offering the lowest prices (less than 100USD) so I'll go with either.
