European Touring Costs 2010 -2016


This is an updated table of our costs for our recent European tours lasting about two months during May and June each year.

It does not include the cost of food which would be similar to our weekly costs at home and extras such as boat and cable car trips.

The largest difference in costs is due to using various ferry routes especially in 2013 when the single fare on the Hull Zeebrugge overnight ferry was not a lot less than the return fare.
