Besides which package you opt for (with or without accommodation) and the the fuel-efficiency of your vehicle, the amount you'll need will depend upon what you want to eat and drink along the way and a whole host of other considerations. To help make this less abstract we’ve put together a table of high and low range options for a team of two (see below).
You can make it even cheaper if you want to, a 3rd or 4th team member is a good solution for cost saving (on petrol, etc). If you go for the Standard Package, your accommodation will be completely covered by your entry fee, so all you need to calculate is what you'll spend on your trip.

Please Note: It’s also important to have some reserve cash in case of emergency, since not all countries are required to save your ass if you can’t pay for it on the spot. We’d ballpark it at around 2,000 Euros for the team.
