My Big Lap Budget Spreadsheet will show you how much money you will need for your Big Lap around Australia

G'day Fellow Road Tripper,

Are you dreaming about taking six months, a year or maybe two and driving around Australia?

Yes?

Then one of the first questions on your mind will most likely be 'how much money will we need?'.

Well you've come to the right place.

People who have done the trip will have their own ideas - '$1000 a week' or '$1.00 per kilometre' are common responses.

But it's a difficult one to answer because everyone has their own ideas about how they want to travel.

Some want to bush camp all the way and others prefer cosy caravan parks. For some it's about trying as many restaurants as possible while for others it's about keeping it local, simple and affordable.

A young couple bush camping in their Troopy will spend a fraction of the amount that a family of 5 towing a big van and staying in Big 4 caravan parks all the way will.

There are a lot of variables that will ultimately determine how much money you'll need, so in order to cater to everyone I've created a simple spreadsheet which I've called my 'Big Lap Budget Spreadsheet' that will take all of the variables that are relevant to you and the way you see your trip unfolding then show you how much money you'll need.

For example, these are some of the variables you can adjust:

  • How long you plan to travel for
  • How many nights you expect to stay in caravan parks, hotels, national parks, free camps
  • What mileage your vehicle gets
  • The current cost per litre of fuel
  • How much cash you have to start with
  • Any other income you have
  • Any other expenses (mortgage, insurance, health cover etc.)
  • And numerous other variables.

As you enter these details you'll see the bottom line update in real time so you can keep 'massaging' the numbers until it works.

And don't worry, the Big Lap Budget Spreadsheet is a DOWNLOAD, not an online application so all of the information lives securely on your computer.

It will work in any version of Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, Apple Numbers or pretty much any spreadsheet program that can open a basic Excel file (I think they all pretty much do).
