How to Do Europe on the Cheap

Europe hasn’t lost any of its charm over the years, and travelling across it by plane, train, or thumb is a dream for many people the world over. But how do you do it without spending a fortune on plane fare and hotel rates?

 

One way to avoid the cost associated with travelling through Europe is to go and see less popular areas. Eastern Europe, for example, is a beautiful area that goes relatively untouched by tourism. As a result you can see much more authentic traditions and buildings, for a fraction of the price.

 

For many people, however, this is no solution as they have their sights set on the more popular destinations such as Amsterdam, Paris, and Rome. There are still ways to save money, however, if you’re willing to put in a little bit of footwork.

 

Hotel rooms can cost a pretty penny, but if you plan to spend the majority of your time sight-seeing you can cut back on expenses there by a wide margin. Two-star cheap hotels may not be somewhere you want to spend all of your days, but if you intend only to punctuate your busy days wandering the narrow cobbled alleys with brief snatches of sleep and the occasional shower, there is nothing wrong with having a cut-rate room.

 

Conversely, getting a deal including breakfast can make a difference as you won’t be spending extra money on food every morning. Especially when breakfast is served in a buffet-style – which it nearly always is – you can fill your boots without worrying about added cost, setting yourself up for good day.

 

Travel is another concern. It can be tempting to buy package holidays proclaiming to save a large amount of money, but be aware that these claims usually mean you are saving money compared to buying the same trip in separate stages from the same provider. By checking cheap flights rates with low-cost airlines at http://flights.CheapFlightsCheapHotels.com.au you may find you can in fact save by purchasing each leg of the trip separately.

 

Sight-seeing is a wonderful way to spend a holiday, but don’t forget that it costs money. If you plan to visit warmer countries you may need a break around mid-day, but even in more moderate climates you might get tired sooner than you usually do if you’re unused to spending your days walking around. As such, plan to do one or two things per day in terms of sight-seeing, and plan for a break lasting at least two hours around mid-day. Stressing out about seeing absolutely everything there is to see won’t let you make the most of your hard-won holiday, so don’t let yourself be seduced into that mindset for love nor money.

 

Doing Europe on the cheap sounds like an impossibility, but if you consider all the areas in which you can make savings, you could come away spending thousands less than you’d expected to, whilst still enjoying a wonderful trip to the glamorous continent you’ve always dreamt of.

 

Europes biggest expenses are your airfares and accommodation, so plan ahead - use CheapFlightsCheapHotels.com.au to save you on these and you're already starting to save big.
