For some people, setting a budget is just one more exciting thing to do when planning their European holiday. Mainly because it gives them an opportunity to dream about the castles and banquets they’ll be spending their euros on.
Then there are others who dread the whole ordeal – probably the same people who haven’t visited the dentist in a year.
Knowing things is hard. And who’s got time for calculations?*
Regardless of which type of person you are, we can all agree that taking the time to work out a budget is better than running out of money halfway through your trip. That either means an embarrassing phone call to your folks back home, or ending the trip with a huge credit card bill.
