Things To Consider When Traveling To Europe
The time that you choose to travel to Europe, will affect how much you will spend on that trip. If you travel in high seasons like December, June, August, you will spend more money on everything like flights, accommodations, attractions, transportation, and even food.
So to save up some extra money, try to travel in some law seasons such as November to March, or travel in shoulder seasons when the weather is good and the sky is clear, like April and September.
NOTE: All of this is just estimated amounts. You can spend a lot less (or more) than that. You can eat food at cheap prices in the streets. Or find a lot of hostels that will save you some dollars per day. But honestly, I don’t think it worth it. Especially in Europe, so just try to spend a little more and enjoy your time.
The average trip to Europe from the U.S cost around $650 USD roundtrip. Flights tend to be cheaper from major hubs (San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Boston.), the west coast is really more expensive than the East.
If you’re flying from other parts of the world, it may be more or less than what the average flight from the USA cost. Also, the time that you flying and where you’re flying can make a huge difference in price.
Summer is always the most expensive time of the year, not just to Europe, but everywhere in the world. Because Summer considered a high season for travel.
so avoid traveling in the summer, unless you don’t have a problem with spending more money. Just try to travel in normal seasons like March, November or maybe September, when flights are significantly cheaper than June, August, and the temperatures are still enjoyable on most of the continent.
One of the most useful things to have when it comes to choosing the perfect time to travel. Is being fully flexible.
And also one thing you should know, that Flights price fluctuates frequently between the U.S and Europe. So the best way to find a good deal is by visiting Skyscanner.com few times a week or set a Price Alert on the app to get notified when the flight cost drops down.

If you backpacking through Europe, and you want to visit lots of countries. then hostels are your best choice for accommodation. You can find a good hostel for $15 to $20 a night. So if you go with the hostel, your accommodation cost will be much much cheaper, just $210 for your 2 weeks.

Food and Drink

Every city and country in Europe will have some kind of local delicacy which I highly recommend you try one in each city you visit.
The first rule you need to do in every city you visit is going to the free things first. Because you may perhaps find some good museums and some art galleries that have no entrance fee. And after that, you can go and visit the expensive stuff like history museums, animal museums and a lot of other attractions.
You can also spend about $15 – $20 for walking tours with guides, to see new cities and learn a lot about them. Or you can simply walk around the neighborhoods and discover new things, and that doesn’t cost you anything.

A lot of people forget to include shopping and buying souvenirs when planning their vacation budget.
