The statistics and associated table above were compiled using the MoneyWiz application we use to track our spending.

Not considered was the entry or exit transport into/out of the country.

Travel budget web sites calculated the costs as shown in below table. We are unsure whether their data includes entry / exit cost. However, it is good to compare our actual versus their data.
