4. Use Eurotrip.com. Once you navigate to this site you are sure to be intrigued by the headline: “Save On Rail Passes And Hostels – Eurotrip Guarantees The Lowest Prices!” The “Plan a Eurotrip” feature is one that you do not want to quickly pass by.
With this, you can upload your budget, travel dates, and destinations. From there, the service will help you find the best possible deals. If you are reasonable with your requests your entire trip will be planned right before your eyes.
5. Book a package. Just as you would for any other trip, consider using travel sites such as Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, and Priceline.com. With these services you can book every aspect of your trip, including flight, hotel, and rental car.
Along with this, you will have access to thousands of reviews. Even though these sites do not specialize in European travel deals, you can still save a lot of money if you take your time and thoroughly consider all your options.
5. Don’t forget the discount airlines! If you find you need to fly withing Europe once you’re there, don’t forget that there are some great discount airline options that can save you a ton of money. Some of them are Ryanair, EasyJet, and Germanwings. Make sure you visit these airlines’ websites directly because these will often not show up on normal flight aggregator sites like Expedia and Orbitz.
One thing to keep in mind: often these airlines will not fly to the main airport, but rather one that might not be directly located in the city (this is why they can charge such cheap rates for you). Just make sure you don’t forget this and go to the wrong airport! I’ve heard a lot of stories like that.
