10 Awesome Tips For Traveling Europe On A Budget ✈️
1. Getting there is the toughest part! Flights across the Atlantic can be pricey. Try and be flexible with where you start your European vay-cay and more options are available. Look at skyscanner.com for open ended options, allowing you to get the the cheapest flight.
2. Don't stay in a hotel! Hotels are expensive and boring! Pictured above is Lucky Lake, a unique hostel in Amsterdam, found via hostelworld.com. Another option for unique listings is airbnb.com.
3. Trains are a really cool way to get around, but buses can usually get you to the same place cheaper. Use the website rome2rio.com to compare the cost of every possible way to get between two cities.
4. Don't eat across the street! It can be tempting after a long day on your feet to just stroll out an attraction and eat at the closest restaurant. Resist the urge as these places tend to jack up prices for not very special food. Walk a little off the beaten path and you may find some hidden gems!
5. European budget airlines are your new best friend! Flights between cities in Europe can be super cheap: check out Ryanair, Germanwings, Easyjet, and other budget airlines for scary low prices. Just try to avoid checking luggage as this can be an unwanted hassle.
6. Try not to pay for water. European restaurants tend to not do the free tap water thing. When ordering water you will usually be given sparkling water, unless you specifically ask for still water. The stuff is pretty gross to me so I was always sure to carry a water bottle while traveling.
7. The metro, with its many names, is the BEST way to get around most European cities. It's very cheap, and is usually pretty simple to figure out. These electrical-looking diagrams map out each city's metro system so try and get comfortable reading them.
8. While some people say carrying lots of cash is very risky, I say it's the way to travel internationally. Most ATMs will have a small fee associated with the international exchange. Don't pay this fee every time you need €20. Pay it only once on a larger withdrawal.
9. Download an offline map of your destination from the App Store. You usually can find a free one by searching the city name. These apps are cool because they often have cool features like guided walking tours and restaurant recommendations.
10. Check out local markets! You can save a ton by making and packing your own lunch or breakfast! Shop in the local grocery store for ingredients, you may even find some cool local foods that you end up loving!
