Travel to Europe is designed not to use tour assistance / travel, so all the arrangements must be done own arragement. Visiting so many countries with many means of transport certainly requires considerable effort and effort, so it may not be suitable for families with young children or elderly. The ability to read maps is also important because they have to find their own way. Especially for people who have never walked alone to a country like England, France, Italy, Holland, Germany, and others, probably most people are wondering: how can you walk without a tour guide? For you who like traveling and travel but do not want to bother, join the tour is a safe choice. As for people who like adventure and freedom, the road itself is not a big difficulty.
But, the road itself also has its own problems:
Places visited are not as many as touring. Usually we spend a long time in one place. The tour bus will take you to many places in one day. Just set foot on tourist spot, photo, and already told to go again.
Choosing a hotel can be a problem in itself, from quality to location, all must be booked (and pay) long before arriving in Europe
Must read the city map, subway / metro, and learn to take the city bus.
Lost should be seen as a walk too, do not scold each other’s companions.
Patience queuing favorite places of interest, pay the ticket is more expensive than the group ticket.
What you need to look at if it intends to participate tour (term group tour) this kind is the details of each city, not the number of city. If you read the details every day in the brochure, does the entrance ticket to the sights include, or pay for itself, or simply “skip”
Meanwhile, if you want to walk alone without the tour, minusnya many roads to the foot of the pegel, plus the hotel will of course be chosen near the city center, even if you can even have a balcony look at the Eiffel tower, right? (Much more expensive), and inter-city travel using fast trains (more convenient but also more expensive). Those are some of the things that differentiate the price, depending on your preference.
Booking airline tickets to Europe at least 3 months prior to departure date. Airplane tickets will be cheaper if bought long ago.
Use a credit card that offers a reasonable exchange rate. And we recommend using up to 2 kinds of credit cards for online transactions so as not to confuse the validation time.
Want cheap, do not go summer time (June-September). The price of the hotel can be 2x the normal price
Notice the weather of the destination country. Bring clothes as necessary. Until Europe must have realized why there is a term ‘people do not like bathing’
Do not bring bath towels. In addition to eating places, always wet and heavy, must make a heavy suitcase and could be subject to excess-baggage charge on the plane. Towels always provided hotel and clean.
Bring disposable underwear, whether for men or women. The price is cheap. You are free from routine washing washing, disposable throw away.
Remember: airlines in Europe use a 15kg limit on check-in luggage. More than this is usually subject to charge. And try the amount of luggage that brought only 2 per person. One for check in, one more backpack. Airfare is calculated from the check-in piece and weight.
Bring medicine that may be necessary and also a doctor’s prescription. We can buy doctor’s medicine at pharmacies without a prescription, but abroad this does not apply.
