Cheap Countries to Travel to in Europe

Here are some of our best cheap travel destinations for your future holidays and why you should pick them 🙂

  • Croatia – You’ll have a better experience in late June or early September if you want to escape the crowds and the oppressive heat. During the middle of the season, the beach is almost empty, allowing you to enjoy the entire beach to yourself. Overall, you can easily visit Croatia on a budget of approximately €35-€90 per day, with accommodation ranging from €40-€80 per night for two people.
  • Greece – Because of their recent economic situation, travelling to Greece is incredibly inexpensive. Late June and September are ideal travel months in both Greece and Cyprus. You may get inexpensive lodging for one person for between €13 and €20 per night.

Other destinations recommended for the similar prices you can also consider:

  • Albania
  • Bulgaria
  • Hungary
  • Montenegro
  • Serbia

Websites to Check Before Booking Transportation

Whether you want to go by plane or rent a car to enjoy the transit to your holiday destination, we have some recommendations for you to check before booking the transportation.

Google Flights offers you the best price for any flight and even recommendations for "flexy days" .
Kayak has a very appealing way to show their offer with their color scheme on the calendar.

Planning a trip? Google Flights may be the next best thing to a travel agent. Already a useful tool for travelers, Google Flights continues to improve.

Here’s how to discover the best cost-effective flights: Look for the green price when searching for flights. That is the flight that Google has determined to be the greatest deal.

It’s a minor detail, but it’s a time saver. However, this trip may not always appear in the “best flights” box, which indicates the best price/flight time combination. Google Flights now analyzes historical pricing data to help you decide whether to book now or later.

For the second alternative, did you ever heard about the website “”?
Well, that’s what Kayak website does.

Kayak is an American online travel agency and its main benefit for you (a student who are trying to explore many places low cost) is that it provides the lowest prices for stays, flights, cars, things to do, vacation packages, and also trains and buses. Sound’s great, right? 😊
“Knowledge is power”, so we hope that you will use this tip as much as you can. 😊
So pack your bags and do a little research on this website.
Wild and free, are you ready? 😊
