5 Tips to Save Money When Travelling in Europe

Planning a trip to Europe but on a tight budget? Don’t worry, there are solutions to all problems. Here are 5 Tips which when used properly, can help save whole lot of money.

 

  1. Use Public Transport or Just Walk

This is one of the best tip which will save you a lot of money. Instead of taking Taxi or hiring a car, try to make use of Public transport like Buses, or simply walk as much as you can. You can buy 24-hour or 3-day or weekly public transport passes and save even more. When moving between short distances, try to walk there, this way you’ll save money, plus explore more.

  1. Travel During OFF Season

Never visit Europe in summer when on tight budget, this is actually the worst time to visit Europe. During summer, the prices are at their highest peak, hotel rooms are booked up, and places are crowded (thanks to travelers). Plus the locals are on vacation during summer. Travel off-season for more local experience.

  1. Plan your each step.

Don’t leave everything on destiny, plan your trip taking everything into consideration. Cut down on unnecessary expenses & pay attention to important tasks. Note down places & spots, which you’ll be visiting when in Europe, research on those places, download a travelers map or guide to that city (these kind of guides & maps are available at airports). Plan each and every move, this will eliminate unwanted expenses.

  1. Go for Inexpensive Hotels

This is where most people waste money, renting expensive / luxury hotels. If you are on a tight budget, then it’s better to go for inexpensive hotel rooms. Since most of the time you’ll be outside wandering the city, there is no sense in renting expensive rooms just for the sake of keeping luggage & valuables. Also try avoiding hotels in city center areas, since they charge more. Don’t go for cheap hotels in shadowy areas, they might not be safe for tourists. Try to find a hotel in reputed residential areas but some distance away from city center. It’s better to book a hotel before flying there, especially when traveling during peak season.

  1. Take Train

During your travel in Europe, if you intend to visit multiple countries, it’s better to take other means like train or buses instead of taking flights. Trains are much cheaper than flying, taking a train when moving between countries will help you save a lot of money, which can be spent somewhere else. If you still want to fly there, better go for cheap airlines or travel during off hours to save some bucks.

What comes to your mind when someone mentions exclusive and/or luxurious holiday destinations? Do you think about the beautiful restaurants in some place, the great accommodation or maybe you are a fan of visiting some exotic and secluded place? According to many experts, the majority of people think about exotic destinations that have beautiful sandy beaches.
