We all want to travel to Europe on a cheap budget these days.
Budget and discounted fares have hit almost every European country in the last few years – all of them fighting each other to offer the most affordable sale deals. But do we really benefit from this discount on European travel prices or the dangers of trying to travel Europe even further? Are we hindered by lower budget costs from the inconvenience that might otherwise be hidden at affordable prices? Lets take a look at some of today's cheap travel trips to Europe and see what we find.
Almost every European country today has at least one non-budget frills budget. Easy Jet and Ryan Air have become famous and popular in Great Britain and Ireland. Germany has four or five low-cost airlines and cheap air specialists. Meanwhile, in Sweden, SAS has just launched its own budget offset called Snowflake.
At first glance the fares rid of these fares may fail; Ryan Air has provided their flights almost free of charge for the past – even if you still have to pay the airport tax of almost 20 pounds in the UK. But where's that? Who's got it? Is there anything to get? Can you travel Europe by air without cost?
That's right. Here's a deal if you want to travel to Europe on a cheap budget:
First, low fares on European planes almost always take off at the provincial airports in the city – often about forty or fifty miles from their city centers. It can add up to two hours of travel time to your journey at each end. You will also need to pay for a bus or train connection to get from your airport to the town center. Make sure you add this price to the cost of your ticket when comparing prices between cheap airline tickets and the prices charged by the main computers. In most cases the leading airlines fly you to the town center airport and thus cut down on your travel time and the cost of any additional transportation.
If you fail to miss a flight then you can literally be trapped in an airport at a remote field at night where all food outlets are closed and there is no way to get back to town or to town.
Second, you only get what you pay for. European budget planes may offer no flight services for food and drinks. Or, if they do, they will pay you for this rate. Coffee, sandwiches and beer can be very expensive. To be fair, many of the trips are only an hour or two & # 39; Guess the snacks and drinks may not be a big deal.
Third – consider the total travel time and compare it to costs. For example: it takes about five hours from central Glasgow in Scotland to central London by train and costs close to twenty five pounds in the UK each way.
Now – you can pick up an affordable flight from Glasgow to London, only to find that two of your airports are forty miles from the city center. That then adds three hours to your travel time, countless airports, baggage handling and all the extra hassles that come with it. You also have to pay separately for bus or train travel from the airport to the town center and vice versa. Unless your plane is cheap you can spend a lot of money eventually for an uncomfortable trip. Check it out carefully if you can.
Fourth, the quoted cheap airline fares are for APEX travelers only. You can pay a lot more if you need to change your flight time. Cheap price tags are usually only available if you buy early – buying the day before or the day will add a great price tag. Luggage allowance is also within range – usually no more than 15kg or 20kg per person. Anything more than this and you will face a hefty premium on your cheap price tag.
In summary – you can travel to Europe cheaply by choosing your discounted airline package carefully. But try to weigh all the extra hidden costs as you compare ticket prices. You will also need to rely on additional travel time to reach a county airport that may be transported.
Please note: Don't worry. you can't put it all together!
Traveling to Europe is fun – however you do.
