Budget: Montenegro

This is one of our Budget series of posts to give you an idea of how much we spent traveling around the world. Here we will look at Montenegro. Check our posts to see what kind of activities we did and where we stayed!

In Montenegro we used the euro. We converted to US dollars using the current conversion rates at the time of our visit. It was approximately 1.3 dollars to 1 euro.

Total Spent (6 days): $471.77

Accommodation: $244.40

We stayed in an apartment that we found on Booking.com. We liked it a lot which is why we ended up staying for so long!

Activities: $29.90

This included the entrance fees to climbing the fortress in Kotor and the bell tower in Perast as well as Zumba classes.

Alcohol: $10.60

Our alcohol category does not include alcohol that we buy with food, so this includes a bottle of wine and beers in Perast.

Food: $91.58

We cooked at home for almost every meal during our stay in Kotor. We had one dinner out after we climbed the fortress. This also includes any alcohol we purchased with our groceries.


Miscellaneous: $23.79

This included postcards, mailing postcards, a bathroom stop, and Eric’s haircut.

Transportation: $71.50

This included buses around Montenegro and from there into Albania. This is higher than it would have been because we ended up having to taxi into Albania because we were told that the buses weren’t running due to a holiday.

This divides out to $71.63/day which is under our $100/day budget!
