How much money is enough to travel Europe?
Shalini Saraswat, lives in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
I have done three Europe trips in last three years covering more than twenty countries. My each trip was almost one month or little longer. Each of them were on a shoe stringn budget, costing 1.5 lacs including everything (Home to home -food, stay, return tickets, visa fee, transport with in and between cities or countries, tickets to attractions). In my experience Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Turkey were more affordable than other countries. The most expensive places were Paris, Oslo and other Scandinavian countries. Places like Netherlands, Italy and Spain fell somewhere in between.
Making this possible took months of planning and days of research online. But i am a person who loves planning my trips so I enjoyed that.
I am a non vegetarian with no reservations about any kind of meat. So I would usually eat the cheapest food; buy bread from the bakery; have fruits; never buy water. Of course eat some interesting loca foods too. But wont spend money on regular stuff at higher prices. I would use a mix of hostels; .Booked my flights early mornings and stayed overnight at airports at times. Booked overnight trains to save cost of a night’s stay. Used my student id for getting concession in tourist attractions tickets. And looked online for cool stuff to do for free in each city 🙂
Another tip- If you can tag along with a friend, you end up saving more. Or make your trip shorter. Ping me if you have specific questions about places or otherwise.

You need to give a lot more details than just the destination which is not even a country but a continent.
But since I've started writing this answer, I will make all the assumptions by myself and hope that it matches your dream vacation plan:
Origin country: India
Destination: one of the most popular countries among Indians such as France, Switzerland, Italy etc. So probably you should plan to take an Air India flight which have connectivity to Paris, Rome, Munich, Frankfurt etc.
Owning to above assumptions, your per head return flight should cost about 50K
Then you can add 10K per night per room for your stay on conservative she.
Add another 5–7K per head per day for your food and miscellaneous expenses per day
Add travel expenses which you will incur while travelling inland Europe which can be about 30–60K per head depending upon your mode of travel, number of destinations, number of days etc.
I think you should be good with a budget of 2 lakhs or so for a 15 days budget trip to Europe

How old are you? how much is your budget and how long are you going to stay there?
If you are planning on doing a few months, I’d recommend having at least $1000 Euros. However, you will be very tight on money. Definitely stay at hostels, try to do Couchsurfing, and if you have friends try to stay with them.
Southern Europe is cheaper than northern Europe so I’d recommend staying in that zone if you don’t have much money. It is also very beautiful and you can cover a lot of ground.
Keep in mind, you will probably end up in hostels and they run about 15 euros a day plus food you are looking at around 25–30 a day and that is if you don’t go out at night to the bars. Multiply that by how many days you are going to stay and you will have a rough estimate but definitely try to have some “emergency money.”
