Are you thinking of travelling to Europe this summer but thinking the cost might be too much? It never has to be expensive. It’s actually quite easy.
Take Barcelona for example. There are loads of flights to this city break destination throughout the year. If you book a flight with Ryanair or Easyjet, you could find an easy deal on flights. Book far in advance and you’ll likely get a good deal. Another way to save money on flights is loyalty schemes. A lot of airlines will give you large discount of you fly frequently with them.
If you’re looking for accommodation and you don’t want to stay in a hostel there’s other ways of staying comfortably but on a budjet. Lots of hotel chains do deals directly on their site, if you book directly and not through a third party. Airbnb is also a great option – this way you can save some pennies while immersing yourself in the real Barcelona by staying with a local or in a non-tourist area.
When you arrive there it’s sometimes best to buy tickets in advance for attractions and venues as they could inflate the price on the door. Look at third party websites as they might be able to do it slightly cheaper. Buying as a group always works out better too.
Whatever you want to do on your city break, take time out before and budget correctly. Following these simple steps will make you have the full city break experience but half the cost.
