Say, I am travelling in Thailand next month, and I estimate that it will take me 1 week for the travel.
What tense should I use to describe the estimated length of the travel : "The estimated length of the travel is (present tense) / will be (future tense) 1 week." ?
Why I am asking this question is that I think the proper tense to be the future tense because the travel (including its length) is a future event. An example from the Internet: "... the estimated population will be 1.5-1.8 billion in 2050 ...", however, I have found on the Internet that the present tense may also be possible, for example, "What is (present tense) the estimated length of the hearing, for which the hearing dates will be fixed)？"
Thank you for your help in advance.
