Rough Costs

Post  LinxHusky on Thu Jul 07, 2011 6:16 pm

You will need at least $3000 - 3500

Flights
Return Flights
~ TO BE CONFIRMED ~
Looking at roughly: $2000
(may vary from $1200 - $2500)

Convention Registration

As taken from the Anthrocon website

Standard Rego
- $50 USD
Sponsor Rego
- $100 USD
SuperSponsor Rego
- $200 USD

Hotel Accommodation

Main hotels are:
- Westin
- Omni
- Doubletree
- Courtyard

According to an attendee of Anthrocon 200x-2011, prices range from
$100-200 USD per room per night + 14% tax

Anthrocon is 4 days in length (July thurs 4 - sun 7), the opening ceremony is on Friday. We will aim to get there on Wednesday and leave on Monday.
Therefore 6 days (5 nights) at $200 = $1000 (total cost for 1 room. can be split amongst people staying in said room)
If split amongst 4 people (max capacity for a room) - $1000 / 4 = $250
Therefore it would cost you approximately $250 for a room with 3 other people for 6 days (5 nights).

Allowing approx $7 per meal, 3 meals a day... $20 a day for food. (this is a bare minimum, please allow more)
$20 a day, 6 days in Pittsburgh = $120 for food

Make sure you have at least $300 - 500 as an emergency backup as well.

ESTA: "Australian's do not need a visa to to visit the US. As long as they have ESTA and a passport with 6 months validity - and a return air ticket"



In summary

$2000 AUD - flight
$50 USD - registration (standard)
$250 USD - room (4 people to a room, 5 nights)
$120 USD - food ($20 a day min, 6 days)
$500 USD - emergency money
$40 USD - shuttle to/from airport (may be cheaper with larger groups)
$14 USD - visa/visa waiver (ESTA)
-------------------
~ $2974 - total (not inc exchange rates)
