Ukraine / Moldova travel budget
Ukraine / Moldova travel budget Reviews
Ukraine / Moldova travel budget Jan 06, 2011
Period visited: 2010 - 11 nights (includes transit through Poland and Romania)
Visa cost: n/a
Budget per day: 100 Euro
Actual per day: 90.51 Euro
Why so expensive?
Accommodation is very expensive in both countries. Furthermore, tours are very expensive, especially in Ukraine. My Chernobyl tour cost me 150 Euros, but some people on my tour had paid as much as 250 for the day trip.
Can it be cheaper?
Yes, you could travel more cheaply if you are travelling as a couple. As accommodation is the major expense, sharing hotel rooms will significantly reduce the cost per person. Furthermore good value accommodation can be found when staying in apartments, rather than hotels.
Hostels cost around 20-25 Euros per bed, so apartments or hotels are probably better value.
Food & Drinks:
Beer: € 1 or less
Espresso: € 1.50 - € 2 (slightly cheaper in Moldova)
Dorm: €20-€25 (Odesa)
Single room: €30 (Kiev)
Apartment: €20-€25 (Odesa/Lviv)
