The World's 20 Most Popular Bucket List Activities
People are willing to spend up to £10,000/ $12,888 on their bucket list on average, new research has revealed.
A survey exploring bucket list budgets revealed respondents would be willing to part with between £5,000/ $6,444 and £10,000/ $12,888 on completing their travel goals.
But with the cost of completing the ‘top 10 bucket list activities’ coming in at a whopping £18,519/ $23,866 (at an average cost per activity of £1851.90/ $2,387), that would only be enough to complete five bucket list items.
Going on safari (£5,600/ $7,217) and walking the Great Wall of China (£1,139/ $1,468) both appeared in the top five bucket list activities.
And visiting the Grand Canyon (£1,181/ $1,522), going whale watching (£2,000/ $2,578) and taking an American road trip (£3,365/ $4,337) also made the top ten wish-list.
Joe Gardiner, Head of Brand and Communications for TotallyMoney.com, said: “We all have a bucket list, but many of us probably don’t take the time to work out how much it would cost to complete.
“If you’re serious about getting everything done before you kick the bucket, then that’s where you have to start.”
The thrifty and frugal, however, can start working towards completing their bucket list right now by choosing one of the three free activities on the list.
Starring as an extra in a movie, writing a novel and running a marathon can all be completed without costing a penny.
In the meantime, big dreamers can try a new bucket list calculator to find out how much you need to set aside.
Using the definitive top 50 bucket list, TotallyMoney.com compiled a smart bucket list calculator which gives users the ability to pick their own ultimate activities from amongst the world’s favourites.
The tool then calculates the total cost of users’ individual bucket lists, before presenting them with the percentage of their salary they will need to save in order to achieve their dreams, based on whether they have two, five or ten years to stockpile funds.
Joe added: “Planning ahead and staying on top of your finances is essential if you’re going to get the most bang for your buck, especially when it comes to travelling and life experiences.”
