Zante isn't like Ibiza where you'll have to pay £50 on a standard night for your club entry so don't worry. Generally club entry is around 10-15 euros and even free on some nights! If a big artist is playing or a main event then you'll be looking more towards 30-50 euros and you'll pay "more on the door" so if there's something you really want to go to - book in advance either online or as soon as you arrive in resort!
If you've got 6 euros then just off the main strip you'll be able to get 2 cocktails and a shot or a really strong fishbowl for 4 for about 25 euros. Go into the superclubs and main bars you'll be looking at a cocktail & shot for 5-6 euros or a beer for 3-5. Double vodka and redbull can range from 3-5 euros and the village wine is available from all local shops for a couple of euros. Although it will give you the hangover of a lifetime and you'll only have it once! Way cheaper than Ibiza and ridiculously good strong drinks in most places! Happy days!
There are certain features and events in every 18-30's destination which are famous around Europe and in Zante it's Rum & Raybans Boat party. Most boat parties will set you back around £50-65 - Rum & Raybans isn't the cheapest, in fact it's probably the most expensive but it is the best so if you can manage to get a place on board you'll have the time of your life! But it is the NO.1 sell out event on the island, so you'll have to be quick!
50-60 Euros per day in Zante
Cautious with Money? Or poor but desperately wanted to come to Zante? Then this is the budget for you to make sure you still have an incredible time!
Eating out means that you'll be going through 1 Euro Slices of Pizza & a Cold Beer (2 Euro) watching the sun go down with the Occasional Fry up to Get you through the day (Maggie Maes is great food and great value for this). The rest of the time it's cooking Pasta on the hob in your apartment or buying little bits here & there from the local shop.
After your hangover is cured it's a day by the beach - don't pay for sunbeds just stick down a towel on the sand and enjoy the sunshine. Make sure to drink water though - it's cheap throughout Laganas - 1 Euro 40 for 6 2 litre bottles will do you proud.
