How to Travel to Europe Cheaply

This video shows you how to save big money on your next trip to Europe. The techniques can also be used anywhere in the world. When we travel we find airfares for $300-$400 Round Trip. We find 3.8 to 5 star hotels for $100/night on average. We limit our daily spending to about $100/day. This means a trip to Europe will cost you around:

  • 7 Days – $1,700 – $1,800
  • 14 days – $3,100 – $3,200
  • 21 Days – $4,500 – $4,600

Listen to how we did it in the YouTube Video below:

Europe is exciting and it is more fun when you saved $1,000 on airfare over the person next to you on the plane or got the same room in the same hotel for $125/night instead of $400/night. Budgets are easy and this video will give you ideas on how to save money and get started.

In the near future we will be offering a service to help plan your trip for you. If you are interested drop me an email at: georgefebish@yahoo.comtoday.

Covered in this video:

  • Airfares (on major carriers)
  • Hotels in both small and large hotel chains

Hellsten Helsinki Senate Hotel – Helsinki Finland

The Hellsten Helsinki Senate was a wonderful place to stay for our vacation in Helsinki Finland. We had a wonderful suite with a large living room, kitchen, full bath, large bedroom and even our own sauna. It is located on an island with a easy walk to shopping, restaurants, the market, boats and the Central Train Station. There is also a tram that runs from the corner right to the train station.

We arrived on the Viking overnight cruise from Stockholm Sweden. It docked on the island a few short blocks from the hotel. When we left to catch our flight to Copenhagen, Denmark, we walked to the Central Train Station. There we caught a train right into the airport. Public transportation was inexpensive, fast and very convenient.

TheYouTube video below shows this great hotel:

Bergen Norway

Bergen is a great little city in Norway. It is on the western shores of Norway directly opposite Oslo. We took the scenic train from Oslo to Bergen over snow covered mountains (A VLOG on this is coming next). We stayed at the Zander K Hotel in Bergen directly opposite the Central Train Station.

When you visit Bergen be sure to experience:

  • Funicular up the mountain to hiking trails and a fantastic sunset
  • Fish Market
  • Multi-Colored Buildings
  • Sea Port
  • Bergenhus Fortress & Museum
  • Walk the streets and enjoy the city

We ate wonderful fish at the Fish Market at the port. The fish is fresh. There are several shops here to buy fish and several restaurants to eat it. You can dine outside (weather permitting) or inside.

Come walk with around Bergen:

Zander K Hotel in Bergen Norway

The Zander K is a wonderful hotel in Bergen Norway one block from the Central Train Station. It has a wonderful breakfast, a great bar and restaurant and spacious rooms. This hotel is located within an easy walk of the Marina, Fish Market, Funicular, Seaport and multi-colored buildings. Taking the Light-Rail to and from the Bergen airport is the easiest and cheapest way.

Come see this great small hotel in the heart of Bergen:

Hotel Verdandi Oslo Norway

Hotel Verdandi is a wonderful small hotel in Oslo. It is about a 13-minute walk from the Central Train Station. As you exit the front of the station, you walk straight on a pedestrian walk way towards the Palace. The hotel is on the left about 2 blocks off the walkway. It is near the Palace, City Hall and the waterfront. There are restaurants along the pedestrian walkway as well as at the waterfront.

The rooms are nice, clean and the staff is friendly. The hotel gives a free breakfast at a restaurant across the street. It is a buffet including eggs, cheese, meats, fruit, breads and sweet rolls.

If you plan a trip to Oslo, this is a great hotel in a very convenient location to stay.

Scandinavia

We took a 3-week trip to Scandinavia in April 2019. We flew from Florida to Frankfurt Germany. From Frankfurt:

  • we flew to Oslo Norway
  • Took a scenic train over snow covered mountains from Oslo to Bergen Norway
  • Few from Bergen to Stockholm, Sweden
  • Took a Viking overnight cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki, Finland
  • Few from Helsinki to Copenhagen Denmark
  • Flew back to Frankfurt to return to Florida USA

It was cool in the beginning of April and we had snow flurries in Stockholm. Helsinki, which is the farthest north of all the cities we visited, was the warmest. Easter in Copenhagen was warm and beautiful.

Our thoughts on this trip:

  • Norway was our favorite followed by Finland and Denmark.
  • The scenic train ride from Oslo to Bergen, Norway is a MUST do
  • The Viking cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki was a pleasure and a must do
  • We will talk about what we saw, what we ate and the great hotels we stayed in
  • If Scandinavia is not on your bucket list, it should be

We are walkers and all of these cities are walkable. They also have great metros and lots of bicycles to rent. Taxis are very expensive so we will talk about fast, easy and safe public transportation from the airports to the central train stations. Hop-On-Hop-Off Busses and boats are a great way to get oriented and see all the main sites.

Scandinavia has a reputation for being expensive and it can be. We saw everything, ate well and travelled fast between cities and within cities for an average of $100/day for two people. Our hotels cost on average $100/day as well.

I will be doing a VLOG on how to travel cheap soon. Look for it.

Now, sit back and travel with us to these four wonderful countries:

Ciao

Barcelona Spain and Sagrada Famila

Barcelona Spain is on the Mediterranean Sea and has a beach and sea port. This city is famous for its architecture, food and wine. It is well-known for its Gaudi architecture. The most famous one is his Sagrada Famila. It is not yet complete but you can tour it. This is the most beautiful and unique church in the world. It looks like it was made as a sand castle. You can tour the two towers, the outside and the inside of this church. Spend time here and take it all in. It is easy to get to on the Metro.

Come visit Barcelona and Sagrada Famila with us in the YouTube video below:

How I Plan a European Trip 2 – Tips

In this video I discuss some tips for getting lower airfares, car rentals and hotel prices. I also discuss what to watch out for on some popular discount sites. A trip to Europe can be very expensive but can also be very reasonable with some planning and work on a computer before you go.

Investigate all discount sites and make a list of costs. Pick the ones that offer what you want for the cheapest amount. Sit back and watch my YouTube video on some tips I use:

Ciao
