Tips for budget travel in Europe

One of the most budget-friendly ways to see Europe is by using an Interrail train pass. With a single pass you can hop on and off many of Europe's trains. Cost of accommodation, food and entertainment do vary between countries, but there are many ways to enjoy a low-cost trip. For example, instead of heading to the popular and pricey French Mediterranean coast, why not go off the beaten track and give Croatia’s stunning beaches a visit.

Also, by travelling outside the high-season, you’ll save yourself a lot of money and dodge the swarms of travellers. Find out how to get the most from your money during your Interrail trip, so you have more to spend on the fun stuff!
