    I got back from a week with 2wentys in Kavos today... I spent exactly 300 EUROS - around £200.

    I took 500 Euros, and everything was so cheap that I've still got 200 left. We ate out at average places for lunch each day (under 10 euros) and had really nice dinners (even in this 5* rated restaurant, the most expensive main course was 12 euros). So overall, I spent around 100 euros on food, add on a bit more for water, ice cream etc.

    We went out every night from about 10/11 pm, getting in after 5am the next day, and despite drinking constantly I didn't seem to spend much money on alcohol at all. The PRs will do anything to get people into their bars/clubs, and will often give you a pint of a cocktail with a free shot for something ridiculous like 2 euros. A lot of the spirits are methylated and you might get ill (like I did) - but you don't need as much money as you probably think you will for drink.

    I don't know about Malia, but all of the good clubs in Kavos were free entry for the whole night - although they were empty until about 3am anyway. We went on a couple of 2wentys organised things like the School Disco and bar crawl on the first night - these are pretty good as you pay 20 euros or so and get free drinks for most of the night - but don't go on all of the organised events because you can get lots of free drinks from random guys anyway!

    Admittedly I don't have anything to show for my money - except a school uniform we had to buy for the disco, a 3 euro cowgirl hat and a 4 euro glittery belt... but even with extras like paying 40 euros for aircon in our apartment and buying photos I spent surprisingly little.

    The two friends I went with spent even less - and compared to a lot of people we met there, we seemed to have had more drinks and nicer food even though we weren't extravagant with money.

    I'm guessing Malia will be similar to Kavos, but I'd do like I did and take 500 or so just in case you do need it.

    Tip: Try and meet a nice guy on the first night - he'll buy all your drinks and maybe some meals too!

    Have a great time x

    i'm planning on taking 450 quid or so on holiday with me for 12 days (with hotels and flights already paid for).. these things often work with one staying up so late at night that breakfast isn't a major option really, and lunch isn't that big a deal. if there are cooking facilities where you are, you can budget by making pasta and other random things.

    also, if there's a supermarket nearby, get some alcohol from there. obviously you don't want to go out clubbing clutching a local grocery bag filled with stella cans, but if you get 6 packs of random drinks, some orange juice and vodka from a supermarket, and have some before going out, you can save money on that front.

    i'm sure that it's easy to spend whatever you've got, but you should be able to do a week away for... 300 euros i'd have thought. so something like say.. 250 quid for a week should be fine.
