    I had no idea that Europe could potentially cost so much.. Or so little.

    I feel like your tip on the flights mailing list was a great one that I would have never thought of!!

    As far as accommodations go, I have heard great things about house sitting. I would LOVE to look more into that when I finally make it to Europe.

    Some good points here. I definitely agree that going to Eastern Europe is cheaper and arranging your own trips will save you a lot of money. I am not sure about the all-inclusive resorts however. I think they are a good option only if you don’t plan to move around too much.

      Thank you, Anda! Of course, all-inclusive packages aren’t recommendable for people that plan to explore a lot but they can save a lot of money on people that just want to stay in one place and relax. That’s why I said, know what are your plans before you go, as all-inclusive isn’t always the cheapest option 🙂

    Great article with excellent tips. We travel Europe by bus and this keeps our costs down. We also enjoy walking tours – they are a great way to get to understand a city from a locals point of view and they also give you tips on great places to eat. Eastern Europe is definitely cheaper than mainstream Europe. Thanks for sharing.

    I feel once I plan a destination , the trick to find a cheapest flight deal can save number of bucks out of your entire budget. My major chunk of budget goes in getting a flight deal and rest all can be managed . I do agree and follow your tips whenever I am travelling to an expensive destination than my own country.

    A very helpful post I must say and with great details. Some of the points you have mentioned can really save travellers money . A very common one which some of us fall to is using a tour / private transport vs using public transport which could be a great saver . Planning ahead is key and using no frill airlines can save a lot as well. I am a big fan of walking tours that show you more of a city and plus they are not very expensive. look forward to using some of the other tips thanks

    You have given such useful tips traveling on budget, not only in Europe, but in general also. I loved the idea of housesitting. Why not? Its much better than staying in a hotel. I completely agree your point on other frills like upgrading, priority booking, food section etc. One can travel without these also. And yes, direct flights and main airport landing are always costly. Great tips

    Wow, these are some cool tips for travelling to Europe on budget. I had always thought that travelling to Europe might cost a bomb. But I do realise that planning and researching can actually save a lot. Thanks for these wonderful tips. I am planning a trip to Georgia & Albania at the end of the year. I think I can travel here in a relatively lower budget than the EU countries.

    Some great tips for budgeting your travel to Europe. I particularly recommend the search for IT fares with one or two nights accommodation included, and also your suggestion about looking at sightseeing passes – they often cover sights plus local public transport and can work out very cost effective!

    This is super comprehensive and useful. I’m quite new to blogging but so far have found mailing lists and using cashback websites total lifesavers! It’s thanks to being on mailing lists that I know about flight sales and managed to bag myself return flights to Copenhagen for £30 last year! x
