Are you struggling to create a budget for your London trip?

London is SUCH an expensive city, so it’s really easy to crush your budget without even noticing, especially when you’re also dealing with trying to do currency conversions in your head on the fly.

It’s also really hard to get a good idea of how much every part of your trip is going to cost, thinking about food, drinks, and little things like a late-night Uber ride after emerging from the club at 3am…

So to help you figure out your London trip budget and stick to it, there’s the London Spending Guide.

Plus, if you love a spreadsheet, you’ll geek out over this 😉

What’s in the London Spending Guide?

  • … and more

2. The London Budget Tracker:

A comprehensive, but easy-to-use Google Sheets template to help you:


  • Figure out how much you need to save from each pay period to reach your trip savings goal (in your currency, 30+ are available!)
  • Calculate your total trip budget for the type of travel you want to do (budget, luxury, etc.)
  • Play around with your budgets for each category so you know where you want to spend more and where you want to save money
  • Keep track of your daily spending so you know how much you have left in your budget and when you’ve overspent

… and more
