Hi guys! Lauren here! So how much more money do you need to save for Zante summer 2018!? Generally I'd advise taking between 50-100 Euros per day! You don't have to break the bank in Zante (but it might be a whole lot more fun!)
Let my handy little guide help you out! 🙂
We surveyed over 500 people who had been to Zante, some who had absolutely F**ked their spending money, some who had more than enough! The average person we found out spends £530 on a weeks holiday spending - about 600 Euros!
Regardless of how you do it - you can save money by booking events in advance and getting your Zante VIP Wristbands giving you discounts at the most popular clubs & bars!
So Check out your FREE Zante spending guide and sample budgets below!
Zante has some of the best clubs & bars in Europe with Zeros, Rescue, Plus & Cocktails and Dreams being some of the most popular!
Entry is usually between 5-15 Euros on a standard night, 30-50 Euros if a big artist is playing and even occasionally free ! For Boat Party Info see Everything Else below!
As for the bars, they're almost all free. Republic Beach Bar/Club on the beach charges on a Sunday when they host the awesome White Party!
Zante is not Ibiza! Which means much more cash in your wallet! Still prices in the main clubs & bars are anywhere between 3-5 Euros for Beer & Vodka Mixer and 4-6 Euros for cocktails! With our discount wristbands you can get buy one get one free cocktails at some of the biggest venues like Zeros & Plus and free shots with every drink you buy! Bonus!
At either end or just off the main strip - and even in some of the smaller bars on it you can expect to get 2 cocktails and a couple of shots for about 7 Euros which is a bargain but might give you a killer headache! But great for getting on it before hitting the main clubs where you might buy just a few drinks!
Supermarket prices are generally reasonable - village wine is just 3 Euros a bottle in some places but you will not drink it for more than one night in a row with the hangover you'll get! Still super strong Rekorderlig is available for about 2 euros a can, Vodka for about 12 Euros per bottle and Schnapps for about 10! Solid pre drinking prices!
Luckily for all you savers, the 2018 Zante Discount Wristbands are now on sale! Meaning you'll save tons of cash on the strip and have an even more amazing week with more cash to spend! Perfect! Perks include:
Zeros Super Club Q Jump

Do you want to make the most of Zante with a FREE A-Z Clubbing and Events Guide for 2018!?
You might think you won't think about food but with a hangovers - a good breakfast is a must - even if it's in the afternoon! We would recommend Maggie Mae's (10% off for wristband holders) and Paul's which are both on or right next to the main strip for a proper English breakfast - but there are loads of good places which do a full breakfast for anywhere between 5-10 Euros! 🙂
Want a pot noodle for dinner? That'll be about 1 Euro 50 - Pizza 'Hub' 3 Euros a slice - A Kebab to go to bed with - 1-5 euros! Feel free to email us at if you're in desperate need & we will do our best to help you out!
For going out expect to pay anywhere between 10-30 euros depending on what you want to eat! Hotdog and chips + a big soft drink is easily doable on a 10 euro budget but Saganaki followed by Lamb Klefiko plus a couple of alcohol drinks before a night out will be towards the 20-25 euros per head mark! Eating on the beach is massively recommended in the evening for a relax before hitting it hard!
Transport, Quads etc!
Think Taxi - Think Laganas - Think about 8 Euros! Roughly 8 Euros from anywhere in Laganas to any hotel in Laganas is about right - and make sure to agree a price in advance! Don't get caught off guard when smashed at 5am on your way home!
Quads are generally about 20 euros a day and 10 euros of petrol will get you pretty far!
If you want to get to St Nicks Beach it's best to book a coach trip through an excursion or event selling outlet or office on the main strip - visit Zante Info Centre right next to our office for reliable info and trips if you're a bit stuck. It's bang on the strip opposite Sizzle Club. PS If you're a wristband Holder you're in Luck! You get 10-30% off ALL St Nicks Watersports and free coaches to Banana beach and back!
Boat Parties & Everything else for 2018
There are certain events you just NEED to budget for when in Zante which don't quite fit into the above! First is souvenirs for your gran. Second is a Boat Party for you!
Souvineers generally come in the form of toy turtles (5-10 Euros) or T Shirts (8-20 Euros) - Don't wait until the airport - it's expensive and pretty rubbish!
A Boat Party will cost between 55-70 Euros in Resort - and you can book RUM & RAYBANS - Zante's Super Cruise & biggest on the Island Here to reserve your spot and the best price. It's not the cheapest (you won't find a ticket less than £55 - 62 euros) but it is the best! You'll have the greatest night of your life.
Boat Parties are a one event you cannot do anything similar to at home due to weather etc so make it a must do on your list and don't end up doing a cheap boring one - make it the night of a lifetime!
We will keep updating this page for 2018 so be sure to keep checking! Email us at if there's anything we haven't answered for you and we will get back to you ASAP! 🙂

Eating out means that you'll be going through 1 Euro Slices of Pizza & a Cold Beer (2 Euro) watching the sun go down with the Occasional Fry up to Get you through the day (Maggie Maes is great food and great value for this). The rest of the time it's cooking Pasta on the hob in your apartment or buying little bits here & there from the local shop.
After your hangover is cured it's a day by the beach - don't pay for sunbeds just stick down a towel on the sand and enjoy the sunshine. Make sure to drink water though - it's cheap throughout Laganas - 1 Euro 40 for 6 2 litre bottles will do you proud.
You'll pre drink some village wine and perhaps splash out on a cheap bottle of spirits and mixers to get you 3/4 of the way there before you hit a couple of bars then a club. Don't be expecting to get tons of drinks at the best Zante venues and events though. Unless you're a girl, good looking and a flirt that is. You can fit in a Foam or Paint Party too!
