Q: “Is a foreign trip from India possible with a budget of ₹80,000 (USD 1,200)?” Mr. Manas Kale asked this question to Shak on Quora. 







Answer: 

Hi Manas, Greetings from http://www.wishtotravel.com

I am composing this answering using US Dollars as base currency for benefit of larger audience.

To begin with, INR 80,000 (US Dollars 1,200) is a good money to travel within Indian and a decent money to travel abroad. Either you are travelling from India from elsewhere, USD 1,200 is a decent money to travel.

Supposedly, if you intend to travel within next 2 months on a week long holiday and depart from Mumbai then two-ways airfares would be around:

Mumbai – Colombo USD 214

Mumbai – Dubai USD 230

Mumbai – Bangkok USD 310

Mumbai – Singapore USD 335







If you take the average, it would be around USD 270 (roughly 23% of your budget) and that means after deducting your airfare, you would be left with USD 930 still in your hand (ching ching).

Now a 7 days accommodation in a 2–3 star hotel in any of the above city shall cost you around USD 350 (roughly 30% of your budget).

At this point, you are still left with USD 580 which I believe should be a reasonable amount of money for food, local transport, sight seeing and some shopping (assuming you are budget conscious traveler).







Here some quick tips to economize further:

Airfare: Make sure that your arrival and departure days does not fall on weekends or just before any festive holidays.

Hotel: Research and book your hotel where breakfast and if possible internet is free.

Local transport: Buy passes. Avoid individual tickets.

Food: Eat at touristic and local places. Buy whatever you can from local supermarkets. If a restaurant look expensive and fancy; avoid.

So either you are travelling out of India or elsewhere, above tips shall help you with a great trip in USD 1,200.
