Be careful with the time of the year you choose for your trip
In many places you will be advised to visit Europe in summer to get more out of your trip, but this may not be entirely true for many reasons.
Mainly in the summer months flights and lodgings increase in price considerably, since this time is the most chosen by tourists; which also means that all the places you want to visit will be full of people.
That is why we will recommend you to travel in autumn or spring. In these months you can still enjoy your trip in good weather and you can find better prices on air and train tickets, and better lodging options.
If you are planning a travel to Italia, going in spring will make your experience much better in a great way, and the autumn months in the Netherlands will make you not want to go home.
Traveling in winter is also an option if you want to enjoy and live a beautiful Christmas. The streets will be filled with lights and ornaments, and you will find a lot of activities to do, but of course you should keep in mind that the temperature drops sharply. If you like winter and you have the right clothes, this will not be a problem.
Book your flight and lodging in advance
To get the best prices on flights to Europe It is best to buy your ticket several months in advance, especially if you decide to travel in summer. If you choose an option that also has stops, your flight will be much cheaper.
If you want to visit a specific country, it is best to buy a tour package. When buying, for example, any of the tour packages to Greece, you can get a better price on the plane ticket, at the lodge and you can also access different guided tours and tours that you cannot miss.
As for the lodging it is also advisable to book it with some time, even more if you want to stay in one of the most important cities of the country or the countries you want to visit. A very good option will be to choose Airbnb to find very good and cheap accommodations.
