How to save while relaxing in Europe
If you want to travel around Europe with a small amount of money, you can easily visit a dozen countries for just a couple hundred euros. So, what can you save on?
Overflights. It’s no secret that European low-cost airlines (airlines that offer cheap flights) are the cheapest way to travel in the region. The most common among them are Ryanair and EasyJet.It is better to take care of buying tickets in advance, since with the approach of the date of travel, the price, as a rule, increases. Also, these companies regularly hold promotions and sales, so it makes sense to subscribe to their newsletter to always be aware of the best deals.
Housing. Hotels and even hostels in the capitals of European countries are also not cheap. The bottom line is that people agree to stay with each other at night – such a kind of social network of mutual assistance. Create your profile and write to users from the city where you would like to stay for a couple of nights – could they shelter you? As a rule, the people there are going to be funny and interesting, so, in addition to housing, you will also get a city tour and good friends. The unspoken rule is that instead of staying overnight, you must prepare your national dinner. You can bring some souvenirs from your country to make things pleasant for the hospitable owners.
Purchases. You can also save a considerable amount on purchases, under certain conditions:
Are you a student.
You are not 26 years old.
You are over 60 years old.
In the first case, you need to do an international student ISIC. In the second – Euro-26 card. In the third case, you will just need to provide any document confirming your age. Usually when buying a variety of goods or services, as well as in restaurants and cafes, there are discounts for this category of people. If you are not one of them, then you can just look for stores where sales take place. Fortunately, in Europe – this is a common thing, and discounts reach up to 95%
