The single biggest cost of a trip would be the return airfare.Currently,
this starts from Rs.30,000/-(please ask your travel agent for the latest
prices) for an Economy class air ticket. The other major cost would be a
rail pass if you want to acquire one. This would cost anywhere between
Rs.41,500/-(approx) for a 15-days in two months, 1st Class Eurail
Flexipass to Rs.18,700/- (again, approx) for a 15-day consecutive
travel Eurail Youthpass. The other cost is that of accommodation. Youth
Hostels charge between US$5 to US$20 per night for a shared
accommodation. Breakfast (unlimited in Switzerland!) is included in
most, but some charge for sheets.Showers are shared on the floor or are
located inside your room. Individual and double accommodation may cost
more.Food costs more than it does in India and tastes half as good!.
Eating conservatively and buying food off supermarket shelves one can
save a lot of money. The occasional indulgence of a restaurant and maybe
wine is okay. Canned beer costs as much as bottled water. It is safe in
Europe to drink from taps, but don't take the risk. On an average expect
to spend about US$50 or between Rs.2500/- to Rs.3000/- per day
inclusive of all expenses.The entire trip may set you back by anything
between Rs.1,30,000/- to Rs.1,75,000/-, the cost including everything
from film rolls, developing costs to backpacks, return air fare, rail
pass, food and accommodation.
