In times when the dollar has hit a record low travelling Europe has gotten more expensive than ever before. The current exchange rate is 1 USD = 0.63 Euro. This is good for Europeans travelling to the US (and indeed many are), but bad for Americans travelling to Europe.
In fact even for Europeans travelling in Europe has gotten A LOT more expensive in the last 10 years. I remember travelling to Greece, Italy and Spain used to be cheap once – nowadays, it’s gotten a lot more expensive (and the salaries haven’t kept up with the steep price rices in the tourism sector).
However, there are still lots of ways how you can travel REALLY cheap around in Europe (and I’m not talking about sleeping in roach-infested Eastern European guesthouses). This is what EuropeBudgetTravel.com is all about – ways to make it possible to travel longer, cheaper and enjoy it more.
In the Articles section you will find more extensive articles on travelling Europe on a budget, whereas the Quick Tips are good to just browse through and pick out the ones that apply to you.
Frankly, no solution fits all, but I tried to include as many ways and tips on saving money as I could here – and from the feedback I get from visitors, I can tell that they already saved lots of people lots of money.
And now have fun looking through the site!
