Finding Cheap European City Breaks

  1. 1. Finding Cheap European City Breaks From Flightline
  2. 2. <ul><li>You may have heard many horror stories about the price of European holidays, but a European city break can still be achieved on a relatively modest budget, provided you are prepared to look for cost-saving opportunities. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Accommodation <ul><li>Just like cheap flights and airfares, cheap accommodation can be found in all these locations if you look for a last minute discounts. </li></ul><ul><li>As a general rule, smaller cities are generally cheaper than large ones, so perhaps consider Bruges, Haarlem or Rotterdam. </li></ul><ul><li>Booking apartments instead of hotel rooms is a good way of saving money, particularly if you are travelling in a group. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Travel <ul><li>Price comparison websites are a good way of saving money on flights, with returns to top European cities varying between ten and two hundred pounds. </li></ul><ul><li>Another way of saving money on flights is to consider flying from different airports, such as Stansted or Bournemouth for example. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Food & Drink <ul><li>Often purchasing extra breakfasts and dinners at a hotel can be extremely costly </li></ul><ul><li>You should be able to find much cheaper food in local cafes and shops compared to often extortionate hotel prices. Stay away from the mini bar! </li></ul><ul><li>If you are buying food to prepare yourself, then remember that street markets will usually be much cheaper than supermarkets for basic food </li></ul>
  6. 6. Transport <ul><li>Think carefully before buying travel card-type tickets. If you are making lots of journeys they can often save you a lot of money, but for a few short trips it is often cheaper to buy individual single fares. </li></ul><ul><li>It is often more interesting to walk. The great European cities – Paris, Venice, Rome, Amsterdam, Prague and Barcelona – have stunning landscapes and architecture which can be appreciated best by foot. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Attractions & Activities <ul><li>Going on tourist excursions can often be costly, so avoid some of the costs by organising your own travel to the attractions themselves. Public transport is usually much cheaper than tourist coach trips and will often lead to more authentic experiences. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Money & Payment <ul><li>The method of payment you use when paying for things can also make a big impact on the price of a holiday. It is usually cheapest to pay using a credit card. Try to avoid using cash machines, and if you do use one try to use a cash card instead of a credit card. </li></ul>
