July 22, 2021

If you’re looking to do more traveling when it’s possible for us all to do so, you probably want to make the process as simple and straightforward as it can be. There are lots of tricks that you should make use of if you don’t have much experience of traveling the continent on a budget. And sticking to a budget is often tough because there are so many ways to waste money if you’re not careful. Read on now to find out more.

Take the Train

In much of western and central Europe, the best and cheapest way to get around is the train. The trains are relatively cheap in lots of places, and the train routes are also pretty comprehensive and regular, so you can get to where you want to be with ease. It’s certainly better than flying from city to city, and it’s a lot less stressful than doing that too.

And the Bus in Eastern Europe

If you’re planning to travel in eastern Europe, the trains are not so good and the routes are not quite as comprehensive in some places. However, these countries are known for having good and relatively cheap bus services. So if you want to get around in an easy and affordable way in eastern Europe, taking the bus is the way to do it.

Book Flights Well in Advance for the Best Deals

If you’re going to be booking some flights as part of your trip, you should make sure you book them well in advance, especially if it’s a trip from North America to Europe. The flights tend to get a lot more expensive on busy and popular routes if you leave it until the last minute, so that’s not something that you want to do.

If You Qualify for an Irish Passport, Get One

This isn’t going to apply to everyone, but if you can apply for an Irish passport through your family descent, you should fill out an Irish passport application ASAP. Doing so will grant you free movement around the EU and if you’re not from an EU member state already, that’s something that you won’t already have. It makes getting across borders and staying within the rules a lot easier.

Research the Destinations You’re Planning on Visiting

Researching the places you’re planning on going to is something that’s always very important as well. You need to know as much about the culture as you can. But it’s often the logistical things that matter even more. Knowing which language they speak and which currency you’ll need to use and which customs are most important matters quite a lot.

So next time you’re planning a travel trip around Europe, be sure to make the most of the tips and ideas that have been shared here. Doing so will make your life a lot easier than it would otherwise be. And your bank balance will come out of the experience in much better shape too.
