Financial Friday 106

Location: Tbilisi [Republic of Georgia]

Week 106….

Transportation

On Saturday, I took the metro once: $0.18. And a taxi, because the metro lines were closed when I wanted to go home: $1.44.

Accommodation

The old AirBnB was $9.26 per night.

On Monday, I moved to a new AirBnB. The price is a little higher since I only booked a week to see if I liked it: $13.39 per night. Note that AirBnBs get much cheaper when booking a week, month or longer. In this case, the weekly discount isn’t as large as the monthly, and the fixed costs (cleaning, etc.) are a much larger percentage of the overall charge.

Food

Nothing too interesting going on here….

Other

Travel insurance: $5.03 per day.

VPN: $0.26 per day.

Amazon Prime: $0.33 per day.

This blog: $0.31 per day.

Skype: $0.08 per day.

Chase Sapphire Reserve: $0.41 per day.

Passport: $0.03 per day.

Password manager: $0.16 per day.

On Friday, my local carrier was running a special: $1.75. For that, I got 5G of data.

On Saturday, my local carrier’s data plan renewed: $10.65. That’s for 20G of data, and rolling over whatever I hadn’t used the previous month.

So that’s a little higher due to higher lodging costs. It’s still pretty good though.

And for the first month of the new year….
