Travel is a fantastic experience and whatever your budget, tours to Europe provide fantastic value for money. If you’ve always wanted to see the Eiffel Tower, throw a coin in the Treves Fountain or catch a river boat down the Danube, there’s a destination for you. Europe is a continent of contrast with many culturally diverse countries within easy reach of each other. There are many ways to view Europe: perhaps you fancy taking one of numerous European cruises or seeing it all from a train window. Whatever your approach, there’s a mode of transport for you and a bustling and vibrant country ready to offer you a warm and friendly welcome.
Student tours europe
Whilst many students may struggle financially during their studies, travelling around Europe still represents good value for money since there are various incentives specifically designed for those in education. Moreover, vacation periods tend to be relatively long and responsibilities minimal with many students taking gap years to travel or work abroad. But where are the best places to travel to if you’re planning on taking a student tour around Europe? Often, the best place to start is by looking around online where there are countless websites which offer cut-price deals specifically designed to cater to the student market. There are a number of tours designed for students and, whether travelling on your own or in a large group, they can provide you with the security of fixed price travel and a pre-planned route. They also represent an excellent opportunity to meet fellow travellers and learn about other cultures and different ways of doing things.
Those on the most limited student budget can ‘backpack’ around Europe. This is a hugely popular option and essentially involves throwing a few items in a rucksack and travelling from place to place staying in hostels and inexpensive hotels. This approach is often favoured by many students since it gives you the opportunity to visit a large number of places for the least amount of money. There are many websites offering advice on planning this type of trip including tips on what to pack (backpackers can often be away for a number of weeks, months or even years!), where to stay and how to save money. The most important thing here is to plan. Plan your route by deciding on the countries that you’d most like to visit and then determine how you intend to travel between them. This gives you the best opportunity to estimate travel costs and look for discount vouchers.
Train tours Europe
An extremely popular place to start looking when booking your trip is by considering train travel. It has numerous advantages over hopping on an aeroplane including offering high-speed travel in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Perhaps most appealingly, you don’t have to go through the same security checks which airline travel demands and, of course, there’s the added benefit of being able to look out of the window and view some stunning scenery. Planning your journey can seem daunting at first and the list of your favourite destinations can help you immeasurably. There are many high-speed train routes across the length and breadth of Europe; from Portugal to Russia and London to Bulgaria, the list is endless. Simply grab a map and load up your favourite internet search engine to plan your itinerary – many websites now offer this sort of service as standard.
