    My plan is to continue the Le Puy camino, and start from Cahors where I stopped last summer, and walk to SJPP or to Pamplona. I also want to do the Camino Portuges from Lisbon to Santiago.

    The daily cost for the Camino really depends on you and what you can afford. In 2015 I spent on average 42 euros per day however in 2017 this came down quite considerably to just under 35 euros, this was not because I was being stingy but sensible. I never paid more than 10 for my Albergue and where a pilgrim meal was offered I had one (including wine) another 10, breakfast 7 when I had it and lunch I bought bread rolls and fillings each day on route (cheese, tomato, tuna, ham) I never really spent more than 5 and as a coffee drinker I took coffee sachets (no weight at all) and when I stopped I would just ask for hot water which they were quite happy to give me.
    So if you're walking on a budget it's possible to keep your costs down and still eat and drink well. I was burning in excess of 5000 calories (Garmin watch) every day as most men should if you walk it in around 31 days, have you ever tried eating 5000 calories of food every day for a week let alone a month, I lost over a stone in weight and came home very fit a trim, I was quite pleased with myself.
    I'm planning to walk it again in 2019 as this year I'm walking Hadrian's Wall another dream of mine.
    Good luck to you all planning to walk this year and have a wonderful experience. Keith, Norfolk

    Having done one Camino, should I get the opportunity to do another my planning would only need to be about 1/10th the planning that I did for the first one, I know what my expectations are, and I know what I would do differently (not much except for the falling down part:D).

    And hopefully 1/10th of the packing. At least I had, well maybe not 1/10th but surely I could take away more than 1/10th the second time.
    The third time, I didn't get my luggage from Air France, so I had to get new gear, which made it also less heavy.
    Still, the planning is almost as good a part of the Camino as the walking itself.

    I was under $40 and was very happy with affording myself some hotels and amenities along the way

    Generally we spent less than 40 euros per day on Camino del Norte. We slept in our own tent staying in the campgrounds for most of the time, paying around 15 to 20 euros for night. And also we were cooking our own food on the trail and spent around 15 euros per day. Some day we were stealth camping and spent even less.

    For our third camino frances (Sept-Oct, 2019), we've booked private rooms for two, with private bathrooms. Most include breakfast in their room rates. We are staying in deluxe hotels in Barcelona, Pamplona, Santiago, the parador in Santo Domingo, and several nice Casa Rurales. We're not spending a single night in albergues with multiple bunks. I've booked advance reservations for every single night and our cost average is 65 euros for both of us. We learned during our second camino how much a good night's sleep is essential to having a good walk the next day. We will be four years older than our first camino, the stock market gains allows us to stay in more expensive rooms, plus there is a good exchange rate for the dollar / euro. Also, I've decided to abandon my detailed, daily record keeping; during first two caminos I logged every single expense.

    Last week I purchased round trip plane tickets from Indianapolis - Barcelona, as well as plane tickets Santiago - Barcelona at the end of our camino. Now I just need to purchase train tickets Barcelona - Pamplona and bus tickets Pamplona - St Jean.
