The Best Travel Tips To Save Big Bucks on Festival Trips: Europe Edition

Introduction

When I was in college, I went on a trip with my friends to Europe. We didn’t have much money at the time, so we tried to do things that were free or cheap. This led us to London, which was filled with music festivals during our time there (summer). We decided that we could stay in London and see some shows — just as long as we didn’t spend any money on hotels or food! It worked out perfectly: we slept on couches and ate nothing but cereal for a week. But if you want something better than cereal for dinner, here are some tips for saving cash while traveling around Europe during festival season:

Europe is full of festivals.

Europe is full of festivals. There are so many that it can be hard to keep track of them all, but there are a few big ones that you should definitely know about.

The best part about festivals in Europe is that they’re not just limited to one country or region–you’ll find them all over the continent! Whether you’re looking for an artsy street fair, a music festival with some incredible acts from around the world, or something more adventurous like an outdoor sports competition or wine tasting session (or maybe even both), there’s sure to be something for everyone here on this list of top 10 Europe Festivals You Should Attend In 2019.

If you’re going to Europe for a music festival, try to avoid the busy summer months.

Most festivals take place in the summertime and are most popular during those peak seasons. When planning your trip, it’s important to keep this in mind so that you don’t end up paying more than necessary. In general, most festivals will have lower prices during off-peak times (like November), but sometimes even then they can be pretty pricey if there aren’t any discounts available or if demand is high enough that hotels raise their prices just because they know people will pay them!

Don’t leave your home country without an unlocked cell phone and SIM card.

If you’re going to Europe and planning on using your cell phone, make sure it’s unlocked. You can get one of these at any major electronics store or by paying a small fee to your carrier.

The next thing is getting a SIM card for the country you’re visiting. You’ll need to do some research ahead of time and find out what kind of coverage each country has (some countries have better service than others), but once again, this isn’t that hard to do with Google Maps or even just asking someone who lives there!

Once you arrive at your destination with both an unlocked phone and new local SIM card in hand, simply pop out the old battery from inside your device and replace it with this one:

Don’t be afraid to take public transit if it’s available.

You’re not going to want to miss out on the fun of festival hopping. But don’t be afraid of taking public transit if it’s available.

In most European cities, taxis are expensive and can take forever (or at least feel like it) because they’re stuck in traffic with everyone else. Plus, they’re not always the safest option: in some areas of Europe where there are more than one or two people per car and drivers who don’t always follow traffic laws, taxi rides have been known to end in accidents or even death! Public transit has its own risks–for example, I once got mugged on a subway train by three guys with knives–but at least it won’t cost you $50+ per hour like most cabs do!

Know what kind of accommodation you want before you leave home.

The most important thing you can do when planning your trip is to know what kind of accommodation you want before booking.

If you want to be close to the action, book a hotel or hostel near the festival site. You’ll be able to check out the sites and sounds without having to worry about driving or public transportation during peak times of day.

If getting away from it all is more up your alley, try renting out a farmhouse or B&B near where there are no crowds at all!

If you want to get away from the crowds, avoid big cities during festival season.

If you’re looking to avoid big cities during festival season, it’s a good idea. Big cities are crowded and expensive. They also tend to be less conducive environments for enjoying festivals than smaller towns or countryside areas. If you want your trip to be an immersive experience, you should try going somewhere else instead of staying in the city where your festival is taking place.

While some people may think that this might feel like missing out on something special by going outside of their usual area for a few days (or weeks), there’s actually plenty of opportunities for discovering new things in every city on earth–and there will always be more chances later if you don’t get around doing so now! So don’t worry about missing out on anything major; just go where your heart takes you!

If you want unique accommodations, book early so you can get a great deal on something that isn’t normally offered by hotels and hostels in the area (e.g., a farm house).

Airbnb is one of the best ways to find unique accommodations at affordable prices. If you have never used Airbnb before, it’s worth checking out! The website features listings from hosts who have spare rooms or apartments available for rent at their homes. You will get to stay somewhere more personal than a hotel room, while also saving money on your trip by not paying for expensive hotel rooms. Be sure to read reviews before booking! If there are no reviews yet posted by previous guests then maybe reconsider staying there until more information becomes available about how well this host does business with others who visit their home as well as whether or not they treat their guests fairly when providing services such as cleaning fees charged before departure from said location.”

Consider doing some research before agreeing to an expensive paid tour of a city or museum — there might be free options available withing walking distance of where you’re staying!

There are lots of ways to save on travel, but one of the easiest is to do some research before agreeing to an expensive paid tour of a city or museum — there might be free options available withing walking distance of where you’re staying!

Free walking tours are available in most cities around the world. They’re often run by students who want some extra spending money, so they’re cheap and cheerful; just make sure you tip them well at the end if you enjoy their company and want them back again next year. You can also find free walking tours online: just search “free [city] walking tour” and check out what comes up! Finally, if none of these options appeal to you because they don’t include enough information about local history (or maybe they do too much), then consider offering up your services as a guide instead: offer people some good advice about what places not only look good on Instagram but also taste great after dark…

The best way to save money while traveling is by doing some research before leaving home

The best way to save money while traveling is by doing some research before leaving home. You can easily find free or cheap alternatives for things like accommodation, food and transportation by looking into local travel deals and discount travel websites.

There are also lots of online resources that will help you get the most out of your festival experience: travel blogs and forums, clubs where people share tips with each other on how to make their trip more affordable, apps that let you know about discounts in real time (for example TripAdvisor), etc…

Conclusion

If you’re going to Europe for a music festival, try to avoid the busy summer months. If you want unique accommodations, book early so you can get a great deal on something that isn’t normally offered by hotels and hostels in the area (e.g., a farm house). If you want to get away from the crowds, avoid big cities during festival season.
