EPoP 037: Getting the Best Bang for Your Travel Buck with Roger Wade


You’re planning a trip to Prague and want to know how much it’ll cost, so you ask a few friends.

“It’s super cheap.  Beer and accommodations are 4x cheaper than here” says your friend who is living in Paris.

Great, a cheap trip!  Until…

“It’s pretty expensive.  Beers are more expensive and food and accommodations are at least two or three times as much” says your friend who is living in Vietnam.

Wait, what?  So which is it?

Luckily, Roger Wade has mapped out the prices of over 120 destinations in the world with real data.  

And he’s put it all in nice, concise lists so that you can actually compare cities with each other easily and effectively.

This means that before traveling to a place, you can actually get a decent handle on how much you’ll spend, and plan your trip accordingly.

And you can also find out what places offer the “best bang for your travel buck”, like three amazing but cheap cities in Europe and an island paradise in Asia.

Throughout his “research”, Roger also found the world’s cheapest beer, liquor, bed, and overwater bungalow, all of which he shares during this epic podcast.
