Budget Travel to Europe

So, you want to travel to Europe but you are on a budget, right? You have been dreaming about doing it for years, but you discover that you might not have enough money to make that happen. Never fear, this seemingly unsurmountable task can be easily accomplished if you follow a few tips such as knowing when to travel, where to stay, knowing how to travel. Let’s get started!

One of the biggest money savers for a European vacation would be not to travel during peak season. Some in the travel industry refer to this season as “Shoulder Season”, which is just after peak season, so you still get the great weather but miss the hordes of tourists. By traveling during Shoulder Season, generally April through early June and September through early October, you will get decent weather, few crowds, and lower airfare and hotel room charges. Plus you will meet more locals rather than tourists. That’s what you are in Europe for, right?

For sleeping, consider looking into a Bed & Breakfast rather than a pricey hotel room. You will want to know the local term, such as Zimmer in German. By staying in a Bed & Breakfast you will get a comfy room and learn first hand about the local culture. As an alternative, Europe has over 2,000 hostels. These hostels are not limited only to youths. Many hostels even have private rooms, just in case you do not like the idea of sleeping dorm style. As a plus, you can usually use the hostel’s kitchen so you can save money by not going to a pricey touristy restaurant.

Research your transportation costs while in Europe. Generally, cars are expensive when you are in a big city. It will cost you upwards of $40 per day just to store a car in a large city. A better alternative is to use the public transportation. For Eurailpasses, they offer great money savings if you are traveling a lot. But if you plan on taking short trips, look at the cost of buying tickets as you go. And Europe’s second class tickets are about 50% less than first class. To really save some dough, inquire about the local bus system. Even though they are slower, they are much cheaper. For example, a bus from Edinburgh to London costs about $40 vs. $140 on a train.

Off-Season Travel to Europe

Without any doubt, there are many advantages to off-season travel. Not only is air travel cheaper in winter than it is in July or August, but it is also easy to grab a good deal on long-distance flights between North America and Europe. Additionally, most hotels offer better rates to those who choose to stay in them in winter. You will discover that the landmarks you might want to visit are less crowded and they are filled with locals rather than tourists, which can be a good thing as you will have a chance to see more attractions without stumbling upon hundreds of other people.

Preparing for Travelling during Winter Months

With all this in mind, it is worth remembering that off-season travel means that you might need to travel during colder months. Even in Southern Europe winters can be chilly, not to mention the snow that is so common in Scandinavia and Central Europe from December to March. You will want to check weather forecasts before embarking on any trip to avoid disappointment. Alternatively, if you cannot cancel your plans, it is wise to bring a warm pair of shoes and a warm jacket with you. Some gloves and a fur hat can come in handy, especially if you are heading to countries located in colder climates.

Plan Your Trip Carefully

Planning any trip carefully is the key to a successful vacation. It is of utmost importance to plan ahead to avoid disappointment. Many people come to see the landmarks they had been dreaming about visiting for years only to discover that those landmarks are closed for the season. Trains and buses usually adjust their schedule to the number of travelers taking a journey during winter months and you can expect to need to wait longer for transportation in winter. Some activities or events might be available only during weekends, so it is essential to plan everything accordingly in advance.

Be Prepared for Language Differences

Europe is home to dozens of languages and dialects. You might be surprised to discover that not everybody in Europe speaks English and you will not be able to communicate easily with everybody you come across, especially if you opt for off-season travel. While this might not be a problem in bigger cities such as Paris or Rome or in your hotel, the moment you decide to visit the countryside, make sure to have a small dictionary in your pocket or at least learn a few words or phrases in the language of the country you chose to visit. One way to avoid this problem is to visit English-speaking countries such as the United Kingdom or Ireland. If you don’t want to be limited, you will need to be prepared for difficulties in communication between you and some of the locals.

Be Flexible in Your Schedule

The moment you set foot in Europe, you need to be prepared for anything. Since many things can go wrong at any time, it is essential to have a backup plan to any possible scenario you have planned for your trip. If you can’t visit a monument because of bad weather, try to go to other places and have fun.

Keeping your journal can mean plenty of fun, so I suggest that wherever you go, you take your travel journal with you.
