Travelling to Europe can be one of the most inspiring and enjoyable experiences. There is simply nothing like taking a long lazy stroll along a beautiful European coastline whilst sipping on chilled glass of white wine, listening to the sounds of the sea waves hitting the shore, or even catching up with friends and family through some quality European conversation. Although, I have to admit, there is one major downside when it comes to travelling to Europe. That is the often high costs associated with enjoying your travels. This article will discuss 3 reasons as to why Travelling to Europe may not be the most affordable option, in terms of both money and travel time.
Travelling by Eurostar to Paris and then by train to Berlin may not be the cheapest way of travelling to Europe, but it certainly is among the easiest. The cost of travelling from one European country to another can easily mount up to 400 Euro’s, depending on which way you choose to travel. However, travelling by Eurostar to Paris and then by train to Berlin may provide the best value for money and time spent during your European trip. First of all, it is less complicated than using a direct airline to travel between different European countries. Secondly, you will save money by travelling via trains, as trains are much cheaper than any other means of travelling between countries.
Another good reason to travel by Eurostar, and perhaps the best reason to travel to Europe are the various Eurostar trains that run between various destinations across Europe. These trains can be a picturesque way of travelling to Europe as they can offer breathtaking scenery and unique scenery that some may never get to experience when travelling by plane. Whilst plane travel may seem more appealing at first due to the scenic beauty that may be seen, in the long term you may find that taking the train is actually less expensive and provides more opportunity to travel around different European countries and thus have more chance to see unique scenery.
There are many different types of trains that run between different destinations around Europe. The most popular ones tend to travel along the French, Dutch, Belgian and Czech borders. Other countries include Russia, Poland, Sweden, Finland and Norway. It is therefore possible to travel around Europe by rail for most, if not all of the countries listed. However, there are some people who only enjoy travelling by train and do not want to have to travel through the traditional air journey.
This means that for them, there are other ways of travelling around Europe. The most common one is by car hire. This may allow you to travel around more quickly and easier as you are able to sit down and travel as a group, which may reduce the risk of anyone having to get sick. The costs for car hire vary greatly depending on what type of vehicle you end up hiring, and whether you are driving across multiple countries or just within a certain area of Europe. Of course, it is also possible to find deals and special offers on car hire so it is worthwhile enquiring with companies that offer this type of service so that you are able to compare prices and book in advance.
These are just some of the reasons why people decide to travel around Europe. Whether you are travelling alone, with your family, or with friends, there are many reasons to choose this type of travelling. Whether you want a relaxing holiday, a walking holiday or somewhere to visit while you are travelling, there is sure to be a suitable destination in Europe for you to choose from.
