After the past few years of shutdowns, closures, and country wide bans due to COVID, are you itching for a Euro trip? While inflation may seem sky-high in the US, it's actually not the case in other parts of the world.
We highly recommend Spain, where food and travel is affordable. And don't forget your luxe travel pillow (and your passport of course). Double check that expiration date! Our Savvy Sleepers luxe travel pillow is available with our Mini and Travel Size pillowcases. Available in Vintage Rosé, Serenity (seen above), and White Russian.
Seen above - Cap Formentor in Majorca, Spain. A beautiful place to visit and travel. It's budget-friendly too.
Here are a list of our top tips for budget-friendly travel in Europe.
#1 Book your main flights first then fill in the middle. Once you know you're getting to Europe (and have a way to get back home to the US) you can book smaller flights on budget airlines like RyanAir or EasyJet and save huge.
#2 If you're traveling with a group, check out Airbnb. Many hotels in Europe only allow 2 people per room and you can't sneak your friends in like in the US. They check passports when you check in and are very strict - often with only 2 twin beds in a room. Airbnb is a great way to save on room accommodations.
#3 Consider the countries you want to see most! Switzerland is one of the most expensive places to visit in the world right now, while Spain is super budget friendly and beautiful. Take a train through Switzerland for a day trip and spend a few days or more in Spain. The beaches on Majorca are some of the most beautiful sites and compared to the rest of Europe, food and rooms cost far less in Spain. Majorca was just featured in Travel + Leisure this month too.
#4 Train Discount. You can choose the amount of countries you're going to and how many days you'll need a train pass and travel all over Europe and if you are traveling with a group together, you can get a 15% family discount if you're booking together.
#5 Don't Over Pack. If you stay in Airbnb's you'll be able to wash your clothes and there are so many great stores you've never seen before where you can buy budgetfriendly European brands of toiletries, you don't need to stock up before you leave.
