The European continents encompass many diverse and enchanting nations. Many people think of a trip to Europe as only a dream trip, because of the outrageous expense. However, you can now travel to Europe more cheaply than you can to some U.S. destinations. You just have to know how to make it happen. Traveling cheaply doesn’t mean you have to backpack and hitchhike, that is, unless you want to.
Scheduling your flight from a major airport will help you in booking a much cheaper flight to Europe. Look to the Internet to find cheap travel deals to Europe. If you don’t reside near a major airport, consider taking a flight to a major one, like LAX or JFK out of New York, then pick up your budget flight out of there. This will save you a ton. British Airways is good bet for lower price air travel to many European countries.
Staying in Europe’s hostels is the way to go, that is if you don’t mind bunking up and sharing a bathroom with strangers. Usually, you either bunk up in a dorm room, a double room, or there are single rooms at a bit higher price. There are cheap hostels across Europe and many accommodations can be quite nice for a bit pricier stay, or you can stay in a no-frills hostel for about $8 a night depending on location. They offer common rooms for entertainment and socializing. Some hostels have curfews, for the protection of their guests, and are the quietest and safest in the hostel world. It is guaranteed to be a cheap way to stay in Europe.
Taking the Bus
Traveling to multiple European countries means you’ve got to obtain a means of transportation. Going by bus is going to be your cheapest option over the Rail. Going by individual bus systems in Europe can be confusing, and not a lot of fun. However, there is a service called Busabout. It offers a hop on/hop off policy and covers 11 European countries and 41 cities. Travelers may purchase a travel pass for a time duration of 2 weeks to six months in order to save even more money. You can find more information about Busabout on the Internet.
Cheap Travel Insurance
One way to travel Europe safely is to make sure you pick up a cheap travel insurance policy before your trip. Travel insurance covers a range of possibilities, including travel medical insurance, trip cancellation coverage, and additional trip insurance coverage. Just because you are traveling on the cheap doesn’t mean you should go bare bones without travel insurance. Things happen and you have to be prepared in case of an emergency or any unforeseen glitches in your trip plans.
