A Last minute trip to Europe – try Frome

European travelSometimes life gets a little crazy and you need to just get away for a while. Suppose you have decided that Europe is the place you will visit, having never been there you may need some assistance with what to see since you really haven’t had the time to properly plan the trip. When planning a trip in a hurry especially one to Europe which is filled with amazing things to see just about everywhere there are some helpful rules that you should follow.

The first rule is to make a list even if you think you don’t need it make one anyway just in case. You’re not traveling around the block or even just out of state you are going to a different country and you must be truly prepared. Make sure your passport is current and make sure you pack all the toiletries you may need on the trip as you may not be able to find the things you need in Europe. Another helpful hint is to speak to a travel agent about discount hotels or if you are computer literate you can check online yourself for a listing of discount hotels. Also buy some travel magazines or look Europe up online to find places of interest that you would want to see. Also, remember you can get cheap flights to most European cities.

Europe is famous for their hop on hop off bus tours and you can find some that are quite reasonably priced. You can also find sights that are free and little mini-tours that will teach you more of the history of the sights than you may realize on your own.

Of course if you are visiting Europe on a budget it is probably better to stay away from the set tours and set out to do sightseeing on your own. One budget friendly idea is to grab a local map and just start walking you will get to see a beautiful city, meet the locals and maybe even run into a café or a restaurant unfamiliar to tourists. You will get a good feel for the European culture this way. Another sure fire way to save money is to use public transportation instead of using the tour buses and acting as your own tour guide, I am sure that you will meet plenty of friendly locals who can direct you to the best places to see. Lastly check for discount days or free passes for the museums though they may be a bit more crowded on those days if others have had the same idea as you but it is a good way to save money and still have an extremely rewarding trip to go home and brag about.
