AND FINALLY: Kicking the bucket

Travel is a key component of people’s bucket lists and they are willing to spend up to £10,000 on average on their ambitions, new research by the website TotallyMoney.com has revealed.

The cost of completing the top 10 activities comes in at £18,519, an average cost per activity of £1,851.90, with going on safari (£5,600) and walking the Great Wall of China (£1,139) both in the top five.

Visiting the Grand Canyon (£1,181), going whale watching (£2,000)) and taking an American road trip (£3,365) are other top favourites.

The website’s advice: Start saving now.

It has compiled a bucket list calculator so users can pick their “ultimate activities” from among the favourites.

The tool then calculates the total cost and gives users the percentage of their salaries they will need to save in order to achieve their dreams, based on whether they have two, five or 10 years to stockpile funds.
