Where is the cheapest place to travel around? Apparently South Africa, according to a new study which looked at the transportation costs of air, bus, train, ferry, and car rental options.
GoEuro’s study analysed data on trains, buses and flights in 51 countries across 5 continents as well as the costs of each mode of transport.
The studyvfactored in distance, schedule, and taxes, along with regional travel and inter-city travel, which helped level the playing-field and not penalising small countries for being small, or big countries for being big.
South Africa proved to be the most cost efficient, ranking no. 1 across all modes of transport (go us!).
The rankings also included the cheapest countries in air, train, and bus travel. India came out cheapest for flights at $10.36 (R110.38); South Africa cheapest for trains at $1.88 (R20.03); and Egypt cheapest for buses at $1.88 (R20.03).
