Hi there,

I am planning on doing to the End to End walk later this year, and am starting planning/training for it already. I was wondering if you could tell me how easy it was for you to budget the trip, and whether you went over/stayed under your budget, and roughly how much it was?
Thanks for all your help otherwise, as your website has been really helpful so far.

Hi Claire.

To be honest, I didn't really budget it, I just did the walk - back then there was hardly any information out there to do with costs, so I had no idea how expensive it would be. I did start out by camping, but the pack weight nearly ended my walk after just 3 weeks, so from then on I stayed in B&Bs and hostels, which were a lot more expensive than camping... so in that sense I guess I did go overbudget, if that's possible when you haven't actually set a budget to begin with!

The costs are all on this page:

though bear in mind that these are 2003 prices, so things will have gone up a lot since then (inflation alone will add about 50% to these prices).

Hope this helps - good luck with the planning!

Best wishes,
