Hey,
Im Flying to London in July next year to backpack around Europe.
Taking 16,000AUD including flights, rail pass..
Think this will be enough for 8 months? i plan on working aswell..
I think thats about $500aud a week..~$307 euro pw..
Im not really sure which railpass i should get.
Im going with a couple of mates and we want to stay
for a week+ at most places, would i be better off with the
eurail flexi pass or eurail pass?
thanks - Dino

I would say a Flexi pass is best since you will be there for so long. You may have to get a couple passes to cover everything or just start buying tickets when it runs out. Your budget is about 40 euros a day which is ok if you dont drink all the time. Probably wouldnt hurt to try to work for some free hostel stays if you can? Eastern Europe is a lot cheaper so that will definately help stretch the money. I would also suggest going to markets for most of your meals to reduce as well. Get others in the hostel to chip in and make a community meal.

Hope this helps!
