After travelling to 21 of the 28 countries within the EU, plus also visiting Russia, Ukraine and Turkey, I can finally say I think I’ve got it down when it comes to booking travel throughout Europe. But what good would this information be stuck inside my head just bursting to get out in the next dinner conversation I find myself in trailing off for hours about “that time I was in Spain” or “OH! did I ever tell you I fed a reindeer?” (understandably I am one of the worst dinner guests but one of your best bets at a trivia night – feel free to invite me any time). So here we go, the best 29 travel hacks to save money on Europe travel, to help you travel more frequently, for longer, and to more places… lets go!

S A V E $$$ in Europe

1. Book x2 one-way tickets

If you’re travelling to Europe you’re likely to be visiting more than one country. Who are we kidding, you’re likely to be visiting a handful! Traditionally it has always been cheaper to book a return ticket from your point of origin… but times are changing. A great way to save a tonne of cash is to book a one-way flight to your starting point, journey from there to your final destination (i.e. Land in Paris, travel throughout Western Europe and fly out of Prague in Central Europe), and not have to worry about travelling in a loop back to your starting point. This is particularly helpful if you intend to visit the East and West, i.e. flying into Moscow and flying out of Paris.

2. Travel Off Season (for two reasons)

It should come at no surprise that summer is in fact the worst time of the year to visit Europe. Firstly, the prices are hiked, the hotels are booked, and the lines for museums are out-of-control long. Secondly, this is the least authentic Europe experience you can allow yourself to encounter. Why? None of the locals will be in town during the summer – they mostly escape the summer madness and flee on holidays of their own. This is particularly try in the likes of Paris and Rome, but also through to smaller towns and countries in Central/Eastern Europe. Typically summer season in Europe is the least authentic experience you can have, its expensive, it is often far too hot, and it is certainly going to be filled with elbow nudging and toe-tapping as you test your patience.

So, when should you travel to Europe? Literally any of the months (and seasons) outside of summer. Rule out June, July and August. If you are going to visit Europe in summer, know where to go to avoid the crowds. Take any of the other months and you will be fine. Typically prices also hike over Christmas/New Years, which is of course true for anywhere in the world.

3. Try stick to Family Run Businesses

So you want to save money but you don’t want it to mean sleeping in dorm rooms or living off greasy carbs for your designated allotment of weeks? The best value for money you will find is almost always going to be through family run businesses. If you want the best deal that combines both price with comfort, family-run hotels, restaurants, tour operators, etc. are one of your best bets.

4. Find a focus

Its easy to look at a map of Europe and let your eyes boggle over the endless possibilities – Rome; Paris; London; Prague; Vienna; Moscow; Kiev…. the list is sure to be endless. But it is also important to give your trip a focus and stick to your instincts. If its your first time in Europe, a great idea is to stick to the ‘hotspots’. If you’re more interested in Modern World History, Central/Eastern Europe is likely to be more your style. If you want to get off the beaten path, there are some unbelievable hidden gems lying further to the East and along the coast of the Baltic states. But one thing is for certain: you can’t do it all at once. And even if you can (assuming you’ve just won the lottery), you shouldn’t. Europe should be explored on multiple trips at various times in your life – depending on what takes your interest at that given time. Here’s a few sample itineraries to get you started:

paris food france

European Highlights

LONDON > AMSTERDAM > PARIS > FRENCH RIVIERA > FLORENCE > ROME > VENICE > MUNICH

London is always a great place to start, particularly if you are travelling from New York and looking to save money on flights. If you’re travelling from further abroad, consider airports with lower taxes such as Dublin, Ireland. From London, you have the choice to either travel by train or air to Amsterdam and make your way through Paris, the French Riviera, through to the hotspots of Italy, and finally to Bavaria in Germany.

prague

Staying Central

MUNICH > PRAGUE > VIENNA > BRATISLAVA > BUDAPEST > KRAKOW

If you’d prefer to venture beyond the hotspots and uncover authentic and awe-inspiring Central Europe, Munich is a great place to start with many airlines flying into here or Frankfurt – also a great starting point in Germany. From there, make your way to the capital of Czech Republic, followed by train travel through Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, and onward to Krakow, Poland.

st petersburg

Discovering the East

MOSCOW > ST PETERSBURG > TALLIN > RIGA

There’s so much to discover in the East and no matter how many times you’ve heard it, you can’t hear it enough – Eastern Europe is SO UNDERRATED… and cheap. Starting in the Russian capital, be sure to spend a few days discovering the city that has suffered turbulence and turmoil over the years, but manages to WOW visitors with its’ Orthodox churches and stunning underground metro stations. From there, take the high-speed train to St Petersburg and discover Russia’s history beyond the modern world – back to the days of Peter the Great and Russian regality. From there its just a short ferry ride to Tallin in Estonia. Onwards to Riga, you will be baffled by the beauty of this Baltic state that doesn’t earn nearly enough credit for its’ charm.

Visiting the North

Slow-paced travel in NORWAY > SWEDEN > DENMARK > FINLAND 

The Northern countries are undeniably the most expensive countries to visit in Europe, so if you’re going to go, it is absolutely necessary to travel at a slower pace in order to make it viable and rewarding. 

5. Avoid Museum Fees

 Most museums offer free entry on particular days. The Louvre offers free entry on the first Sunday of the month for example, which can be a nice saving if you’re on a tight budget. If you can swing your schedule to allow for it, avoiding museum entrance fees is a great chance to save money.

6. Have a plan (and backup plans) for handling your money

Before you leave, its important to have a definitive plan for handling your finances whilst abroad. ATM fees are increasingly expensive and exchanging cash is not only costly but equally risky. Be sure to do your own up-to-date research on the credit cards available to you, but do know that the best deal I have personally found is the 28 Degrees Mastercard. There are no fees when using it as a credit card, however be wary of ATM fees which once weren’t a problem but have recently been implemented (given the popularity of the card, I assume)!

7. Travel to countries not on the Euro

A huge money saver comes when you choose to travel to countries not yet on the Euro. Take advantage of the exchange rates and consider countries like: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, or Romania. But beware of expensive countries not on the Euro because their economies are doing so well they’d lose out by doing so! These include: The UK, Denmark and Sweden.

8. Picnics all day every day

Travelling in general gets ridiculously expensive when you have to pay a higher price for everything – from accommodation to food to transportation, the costs soon add up. One of the biggest money savers for me over the years has been eating from supermarkets and snacking on-the-go. If you’re with others, take this one step further and make it a fun activity by grabbing some eats in the supermarket and having a picnic underneath the Eiffel Tower (champagne optional)!!

9. Eat with the season

Saving money buying your own food for picnics is one thing, but eating with the season takes it up one more notch to serious budgeting skills

10. Free Entertainment is everywhere… and yeah, its free, so….

There are certain shows around the world worth the investment (Moulin Rouge, Cirque du Soleil shows and Broadway shows for example), but don’t forget many of the best entertainment around the world is completely free! Whether its a free event or just people watching from a public park or sidewalk, there’s always something intriguing waiting to be discovered without a price tag.

11. Be in-the-know on the budget airlines serving Europe

…By referring to the detailed list below!

Airline Hub(s)
Aer Lingus Dublin, Shannon, Cork, Belfast
airBaltic Riga (Latvia)
airberlin Multiple German cities
Air One Milan, Venice, Pisa
Blue Air Bucharest, Bacău (Romania)

CityJet London City Airport
Condor Multiple German cities

12. Know how to Price Compare (even for budget airlines)

 Budget airlines will easily save you $, but with so many out there it is still important to price compare. Personally I use Skyscanner to compare flights, but don’t be afraid to do some searching of your own in case any of the above budget airlines aren’t appearing in your search.

13. Visit Tourist Information when you land

 This one is not only great for saving money, but time as well. Planning is great if you’re not accustomed to international travel, but for those who frequently take trips one of the best plans is to not make any plans! Simply make your way to “Tourist Information” once you land and you’ll be spoiled with choice. You will find great information and advice (for free) as well as get the best option for travelling from the airport to your accommodation. Bingo!

14. Stay Central + Walk Everywhere

Saving money on accommodation by staying outside of the city may be the oldest trick in the book, but it certainly isn’t always the smartest. By staying central you can save a good deal of money on transport costs and reduce the time you spend commuting each day – thus making the most of your time in a city, requiring less time to visit, and hopefully reducing your travel costs even further. Walking (instead of public transport) is also the best way to see a new city!

15. There truly is free wi-fi everywhere

 I’m always shocked by the amount of times I am asked about phone connectivity abroad – because I’ve spent the last year without a phone connection whatsoever! In the present day and age there is wi-fi connection almost everywhere… and best of all, its free! Whether you run to the closest McDonalds or Starbucks, or simply log on in a public square (more and more cities are offering free wi-fi), the truth is you’ll be spoiled for choice!

16. Save Money by Rail

Budget airlines are great, but the “no-frills” policy does mean you will end up often spending more than the ticket price when you add luggage fees, plus the fact that the airports these airlines use are often much further outside of the city. To avoid extra fees, consider travelling by rail. Booking tickets in advance from point-to-point often results in huge savings – just keep an eye out for sales or sign up for deals.

17. Carpool

 But why stop there? Lets take it one step further! In the modern age of technology we have a huge opportunity to use resources like Carpooling.com to help our pockets AND the environment.

18. Rent an apartment or private room

 Sites such as Airbnb.com and Wimdu.com (particularly good in Europe) have become increasingly popular in recent years… and for good reason! Particularly if you are travelling in groups, booking an apartment or a private room is a great way to save money and live like a local.

19. Serious savings: Couchsurfing + Housesitting

 One step further again: try websites such as Couchsurfing.com and Mindmyhouse.com if you want to stay completely free! That’s right, FREE!

PART II: Know the Cities +  Countries to Visit

bosnia

20. Bosnia & Herzegovina

In case you haven’t yet realised, I fell completely head over heels in love with this country this year. Not only is it one of the most underrated countries in Europe, its also ridiculously affordable and still off the beaten path.

21. Belgrade, Serbia

For a capital city, Belgrade is ridiculously cheap in comparative terms. Its just a bonus that it is also quite a charming city with some lovely locals who welcome tourists with great hospitality!

romania

22. Romania

Still not on the Euro and still off the beaten path, Romania is one of the cheapest countries to visit in Europe and has so much beauty to uncover. Tourism is on the rise so the sooner you visit the better!

23. Berlin, Germany

As the capital city of a country with a thriving economy, one would expect the word expensive to pop up when considering Berlin. Quite the contrary! Berlin is incredibly affordable (even though prices are on the rise) and has one of the best vegetarian eats scenes in the entire world. Seriously, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

lisbon

24. Portugal

Increasingly popular Portugal is still very affordable for travellers, but don’t expect this to last long! Tourism in Portugal is experiencing unprecedented growth so the sooner you add this country to your travel plans, the better. Lisbon is a great place to start, but be sure to further consider Oporto in the North, or heading South to the Algarve.

25. Malta

Malta is another great choice if you’re looking for all-round savings on everything from accommodation through to food, transport, and fun nights out.

russia

26. Russia

In light of recent events, the Russian economy and subsequently the Ruble, is not performing particularly well at current. Though there has been turmoil in the nearby region, cities such as Moscow and St Petersburg are still very safe for travellers and offer a great range of history, culture and eye-opening experiences. The country itself is still worth every praise as a fantastic country to visit as a traveller, even if the politics of the nation are understandably questionable.

27. Warsaw, Poland

As far as capital cities go, the Polish capital, Warsaw, is incredibly affordable. It makes for a great starting point to venture further into Poland or if you’re planning to head further East.

prague

28. Prague, Czech Republic

Prague has quickly become ‘the’ hotspot in Central Europe for travellers. The architecture alone is explanation enough. Fortunately for travellers, Czech Republic has stayed on their local currency and avoided switching to the Euro. That means a great exchange rate can still be taken advantage of to save you $ on your Eurotrip!

29. Moldova

 Chances are you haven’t heard of, let alone considered, Moldova. Earlier this year I met a fellow blogger from Moldova who assures me this is one of the most underrated countries in all of Europe. After a little web research and pinteresting later, I am convinced! Moldova is also very affordable and may just be one of the most affordable countries in Europe!

    Great post! (It’s a shame this comment thread is being spoilt by a few spam comments…) But I completely agree about taking trains everywhere. I just travelled across Europe for two months over winter and the overnight trains were a highlight for me. It was so much fun and was a real cost cutting measure for us.

    I dont know how and where to start but i can say is thank God for the blank ATM card. I’m Divorced man with three kids trying to survive and pay my bills but everything started getting worse few weeks after i lost my job and have been trying lo lend money from friends and Family! And it got to a point where no one was willing to lend or help me with money because i was much more in debts. I tried getting a job but all my effort proves abortive, and things became worse every minutes of the day that i had to pawn all i have just to get food on the table for my kids.

    One evening, i was reading a blog of how so many people got this blank card online when i was trying to search for a new job, but it didn’t seem clear to me so i ignored. Three days later, i was so surprised to see a comment by my cousin on how he got the blank card worth Millions of Dollars and without hesitation i gave him a call to come over to the house to tell me more about the card and he told me that its a miracle that i needed to per-take. He gave me the email address of the hackers and i contact them for the card and they responded and told me all the procedures and terms of the card which was also what my cousin told me, i agreed and completed their requirement to get the card. Four days later, i heard knock on my door an behold was the courier agent who brought the parcel to my house and today i am $17,Million Dollars richer and i thank God to this hackers and to my cousin brother who lead me to them. It might sounds odd but you can get yours via email: {atmhackersworldwide.creditcard@gmail.com}

    Don t fall into the hands of scams trying to get the blank ATM card on the internet. I came across so many comments of a blank ATM card worth’s millions, thus i doubted all this but there was this comment made by Lambert Harold including his email for confirmation regarding the card. I contacted Lambert and he told me everything and how he purchased the card from GREAT HACKERS. immediately i contacted the email address he gave me, {Hackedcredits.atmcards.net@gmail.com }. Few hours later i got a response and was told all the processing which i agreed willing to see the end. Three days later i received an email regarding my tracking number to my parcel and before i knew it, the CARD was delivered by the UPS courier service. I did not believe all this even when i was holding the ATM card, until i was able to withdraw the $7,000.00 he told me i can withdrew per day. Today i am a company owner with so many other properties, all thanks to GREAT HACKERS. I took time to make this comment to avoid anyone falling into the hands of scam, so i advice you never to contact any other ATM card seller expect this very man because he is for real. Contact him today via email{Hackedcredits.atmcards.net@gmail.com }

    AVOID SCAMMERS

    I never believed in Blank ATM card until i got one from the ATM hackers.One afternoon i was going through some articles on the INTERNET, where i came across a comment about a man who got a blank card worth $7 Million Dollars. I doubted this easy magic and wonder where the money is coming from, i never took it serious so i ignored the comment, along the line i came across another comment of a lady on You-tube who got the card as well from the same hackers, so i copied the email address: (Hackedcredits.atmcards.net@gmail.com). I contacted them and few hours later i got a response and i was told that the blank ATM cards are for sale that i need to purchase one before it can be delivered to me, so i sold my computer and wire the money for the card and to my greatest surprise i received a call from the courier here in Alabama three days later that i have a parcel to pick up, i rushed down and picked up my parcel and without hesitation i went straight to the ATM machine and i made a withdrawal of $7,000.00Usd at once and today i have purchased a new home and set up a new business. If you wish to seek for this blank card, kindly contact the email below: (Hackedcredits.atmcards.net@gmail.com)

    HOW I GOT RICH VIA BLANK ATM CARD
    Thanks to all of these advanced features,EXPLANATION OF HOW THESE CARD WORKS……….
    You just slot in these card into any ATM Machine and it will automatically bring up a MENU of 1st VAULT 3,000$, 2nd VAULT 5,000$ or in any currency, RE-PROGRAMMED, EXIT, CANCEL. Just click on either of the VAULTS, and it will take you to another SUB-MENU of ALL, OTHERS, EXIT, CANCEL. Just click on others and type in the amount you wish to withdraw from the ATM and you have it cashed instantly… Done. ***NOTE: DON’T EVER MAKE THE MISTAKE OF CLICKING THE “ALL” OPTION. BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE OUT ALL THE AMOUNT OF THE SELECTED VAULT all an attacker has to do is merely approach an infected ATM and enter a special PIN code in order to access the secret menu that will allow him to make cash withdrawals of $5.000 or control the trojan (for example, to delete it). To make a withdrawal the person has to know the appropriate commands, as well as a special formula that will calculate a session key — some kind of a two-factor authentication. If both codes are correct, then a second menu will appear that allows the criminal to choose the cassette number and make a withdrawal. Although one can only dispense 40 banknotes per transaction, it’s possible to dispense any amount of money by simply performing the actions several times over.WE MUST TAKE IT BY FOES WE FAITH ALL THINS ARE

    I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any attention to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called Smart. he is really good at what he those. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $30000 without any stress of being caught. I don’t know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address (hackersmart00@gmail.com)). And you thanks me later for dropping the contact.

    I went to Tallinn, Estonia for 10 days, took a bus to St Petersburg, stayed 4 days; flew to Helsinki and the weather was perfect for late October. I decided to go north so booked a sleeper up to Rovaniemi and spent the day there and took another sleeper back to Helsinki for two more days. That was in 1992. Now I try to work in night trains when ever I want to travel between cities on the continent–Berlin to Paris; the Red Arrow St. Petersburg to Moscow. Saves a lot of money.

    As for the places to see in France, I know that people love going to Paris and that the Riviera is beautiful but please go see Brittany and the southwest, you will find wonderful people and great food, in addition to beautiful landscapes. Go off the beaten tracks !

    It is so true about only doing an area/a few countries at a time. I find you just stop appreciating where you are and stop taking things in. This week will be my 5th time in Europe and there is still so much to see.

    Also couch surfing is so so great in Europe. They make you feel so welcome and you get to do local things that you would have otherwise missed or not known about!

    I would like to add the use of hone exchange (of course you do need a home base house for this.) But it does allow you to save on accomodation, and live in real non touristy neighborhoods. We are currently in ortugal after six year adventure in Central America and 15 months in Asia. Prices are a shock but we manage to keep to 35-45 euros a day for two. We prefer markets to supermarkets and we do picnic a lot and by fruit whenever we can, as well as nuts amd anything thats local and inexpensive.

      Hey! There are trains from Paris to the French Riviera. Look up Paris to Cannes, Paris to Nice, or Paris to Monaco but flights with easyjet or ryanair may be cheaper. As for land transportation I strongly advise carpooling. Buses are quite rare and expensive. Train along the Riviera can be quite cheap and there is even a line that goes from Cannes (the city of the cinema festival) to a town in Italy, near the border.

    I am from Finland, so I am European and it definately is very expensive here, like you said. I’d say that in the end of August is already good traveling time if you are heading to Scandinavia and northern europe. School starts here like 10th august and everyone is back at home since then and also summerholidays are ended then. And weather isn’t too cold yet. And we don’t have that much tourists anyway 😀

    That was fun article to read because we Finns, me included, travel to middle europe and are like “wow, it’s so cheap in here, let’s shop!” 😀

    I’m travelling to Iceland this spring, and it will be my first trip to Europe. I’ve already decided to commit myself to saving as much as possible, by couchsurfing, ridesharing, and taking advantage of free activities. I’ll see which of these tips helps me with this minimal-spending goal. Cheers!

    Great tips! Europe is my ultimate dream destination. I agree, summers don’t represent the authentic beauty of Europe. My sis and her hubby visited Netherlands and France in July and they weren’t too happy – it was hot and too crowded.

    Seriously helpful! A friend of mine wanted to push my trip to August but I was saying that I want to do June or July because of the weather, but this is starting to sway my decision! Hoping you’ll be around when I do finalise when I want to come, have to see you! 🙂

    Thanks for these tips, they’re really helpful.

    I’m off on my first solo trip early next year and while I’m not exactly on a strict budget, I’d rather come back with money left in my travel fund that could be put towards my next trip.

    I’m hitting Hamburg, Berlin, Copenhagen, Rome, Barcelona, Brussels and Dublin over the course of 5 weeks, so won’t be staying in the cheapest of cities…

    I think I’m on the right track with cutting costs down:
    -I’ve managed to book accommodation that’s central in each city to cut down on public transport or rental costs (I much prefer to walk everywhere anyway).
    – I’m staying in hostels rather than hotels
    – I’m only travelling with hand luggage to cut down on hold luggage costs.
    – I’ve booked free walking tours of each city with Sandemans.
    – Also my plane tickets were INSANELY cheap. They’re all one way tickets from either easyJet or Ryanair.

    Anyway, its either going to be amazing fun, or a massive disaster. Either way, I’ll have some entertaining stories to tell when I get back!

    I cannot agree more with 10 – Free Entertainment. I’ve seen a lot of free events, stages and interesting people in cities especially on weekends. And that’s one of the things I’m writing on my blog. In my opinion, they are another “truth” of the country.

    Hi Brooke! Thanks you for all the tips! Allways a great pleasure to read you and learn more on your adventures!

    Travelling a lot as well, my way of feeling alive, existing and without any doubt feeling richer after every trip realized. I know Australia very well, spent 7 months there few years ago, let part of my heart outhere and friends, but we try to catch up in Europe, Asia or Aussie regulary.

    I was deeply touched about all your comments on Bosnia, I was born there, leaved until the civil war started in 93′. Now, Swiss citizen but I try to visit Sarajevo and my relatives every year. Thank you for letting people know about my country of origin, a bit forgotten but such a nice place with undoubtedly the best mix of coultures and food and mostly nice PEOPLE!

    Sarajevo will have direct flight from Zurich – very low cost prices, this starting April 1st!

    You must receive many invitations for visits, but mine is sincere and very spontaneous. Come to Sarajevo again, stay in my parents house, with us, locals…come last week-end of July 2015, this is the weekend not to miss! I can explain more in detail if you are interested. This weekend is all about the concert from Dino Merlin, a Legend from Sarajevo, the singer that is the most known in whole ex Yougoslavia. 60-80k people will be attending the concert.

    I would be happy and honored to wellcome you.

    Btw, you are also invited to visit me in Neuchatel, Switzerland. Just let me know if you have a weekend free so I can show you around.

    All the best to you!

    Travel safe.

    Being a Russian, I can confirm that Russia is EXTREMELY underrated! In addition, there are so many gorgeous fascinating places other than Moscow and St Petersburg. I love the cities in the Golden Ring and the Russian Far East for its nature.

    And I definitely agree about travelling off-season, especially to very touristy places like Rome and Venice!
