You can approach travel planning in many ways. I narrow it down where I badly want to go, and then figure out how much it costs. From here I can add or subtract locations or side trips. As I start to plan a trip to Europe right now, I thought I could walk through the process and at least show how I'm going to go together. Keep in mind that the costs listed below originate from Internet searches that I submitted on January 30, 2008, and should only be considered as potential prices.
Recently, my father (who never was in Europe) asked me to go with him and show him at the end of April. After submitting specific data, his only application was Italy, Spain or Germany. Just about 10 days to spend abroad I decided against Germany. Although Germany is probably my favorite country in Europe, Italy or Spain can indeed give Europe a first-time experience of being a European traveler for some time. In Rome, Rome, Florence and Venice, the usual round trip is relatively close to each other, making trains easy and fast. In Spain, my favorite cites Barcelona, Girona, Granada, Seville and Madrid, are also relatively close and cheap. Personally, in Germany, so much so that I love what is at different ends of the country, there is not enough time for a fast 7-10 day trip.
Dropped from my seat and the length of the trip, I first recall a trip to Europe, a flight. Using kayak.com, I'll start connecting the big airports that I would like to fly to and from there. Because we want to go to Italy, we can start (for ease of wounds) from New York to Rome's flexible dates for the time I get to work. Of course you want to connect to the nearest international airport for you. During the last week of May of the first week of April, I was looking for the cheapest flight from NYC to Rome from 29 to 9. Century = $ 756. On this issue of my fares, I will explore other possible cities for cheaper fares from NYC to Florence from the 29th to the 13th Century = $ 956 —- nope from NYC to Venice from age 26 to 10 = $ 850 —- nope NYC-to-Milan from 25th to the 9th year = $ 852 —- not found cheaper, then I'll start thinking of flying one city and flying to another. This can save you the cost of a withdrawal (which is limited) and the return of an additional train ticket. Since my plan is to fly to Rome and finally go to Venice, I will check the two cheapest dates for the city. NYC-to-Rome: Venice -NYC 29.-9. For the year = $ 852
For $ 100 more, I can lose 4-5 hours of travel and train ticket, which would cost at least $ 100 a road. So far, this seems to be a better solution. For the sake of arguments, why not check out what Barcelona would cost to Barcelona in the magnificent Spanish city. My dad wanted to see Spain and the Barcelona supermassive ferry in a city near Rome is incredibly fun and inexpensive when you think about how much you pay for accommodation. NYC to -Barcelona: Venice-NYC 29.-9. For the year = $ 816
Well, we almost save $ 40 and reach Barcelona. If we can reach $ 40 in Barcelona from Barcelona, we have actually earned money (not well enough, but we get an idea). Currently, there is a ferry concept that allows fast check directferries.co.uk: Barcelona-to-Civitavecchia (near Rome) (20 hours overnight) = $ 65 in Grimaldi Ferries. Accommodation costs anywhere from $ 25 to $ 35 in Rome or Barcelona, and we save € 36 to Spain, which sounds like a reasonably quick visit to Barcelona and does not cost us at all. For even greater savings, we can try to fly from Barcelona to Rome, but we must bear in mind that 1. It is not overnight, so accommodation is once again a problem and 2. Budget airlines do not primarily fly from a larger airport, make a trip outside the city and give out. Under no circumstances can a sample be checked for some samples of clicks and rianair. Clickair is from Barcelona – Rome (Fiumicino) 2nd place = $ 29 (the second, though slightly delayed). Ryanair has Barcelona (Girona) – Rome (Ciampino) 1 = $ 20
In conclusion, we now know that stopping in Barcelona is a great idea and getting to Rome is cheap and easy. Based on these airplane plans, we can begin to investigate what this trip costs to land transport. I prefer renting a car in Europe; I can not just relax in the car, and the cost of gas and the concentration of the road will usually be about freedom. With that in mind, it's time to realize if buying a bunker ticket is cheaper than buying a train ticket. My approximate plan is to fly Rome to Rome (ride or sail), then go to Rome from Florence to Venice. In any case, check the prices of points-tickets between these cities and some side-trips to spread costs by using noambit.com worksheets. Rome-Florence (1-2 hours) = $ 65 Florence- Venice (2-3 hours) = $ 58 Rome – Pisa (3-4 hours) = $ 47 Pisa – Florence (1-2 hours) = $ 19 Firenze – Rimini (1 hour) = $ 50 Rimini-Venice (1-2 hours) = $ 70 With these numbers, we can see that our easiest trip to Rome, Florence, Venice costs around $ 123. The most expensive plan, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Rimini and Venice will come at around 196 $. A quick overview of the cost of rail traffic shows us that we can only benefit if we want to make a longer trip and then only hardly. Thursday's rail transport (you can travel within four days within two months) takes about $ 202. However, our long journey, but also a 20% discount on Barcelona Ferry. The problem I see here is that when traveling so much, especially since we are adding a city to Spain, there's no time to see it. At this point, I chose to pay the full price for the fleet of gas and buy tickets in Italy. Even adding Pisa costs only about $ 134.
Here, assuming we throw Florence in Pisa (a daily trip) and pay a full tax on a ferry in Spain, we are looking to spend about $ 1015 to spend ten days and look at five cities in two countries in Europe. Now is the time to imagine. For me, we are talking about planning a minimum of $ 50 a day for bed and food. Sometimes it's high (not very), sometimes it's low (more and more each year). But for promotional purposes, I looked at budget hotels and hostels for places to visit to get a thorough overview of what I was spending. April 30 – Barcelona = $ 20- $ 35 May 1 – by boat Rome = already thought 2-4. – Rome = $ 20 (camping) $ 30 (hostel) 5-6. – Firenze = $ 15- $ 25 7.-8. – Venice = $ 45
What we finally have is between $ 200- $ 265 that I need accommodation. Adding food takes a little caution, but $ 15 a day is a good workable number. If necessary, you can eat Mc Donald twice and "live" or grab some bread and cheese from the grocery store and stay a few more slices of pizza or Doner Kebab. Of course, if you go to Italy for food or wine, you must plan to spend more money, but you should pay $ 15. Our final cost is vision and accessory (metro, wine bottle, train reservations). Since my father had never been there, I would like to show him the Vatican Museum, the Colosseum, the Palatine's Grave, the image of David, the Sagrada Familia, and a variety of other things. The trip, as we planned above, in Italy for only 10 days, should be between 150 and 200 dollars.
When everything is said and done, I can count about $ 1,365 – for a total trip of $ 1,480. This, as we have seen, has rather weak bones, so there is not much that can be reduced if it does not have my budget (it's very close). I can, of course, refuse to visit Pisa, but for trains it only saves me to $ 10 and it does not seem worth leaving a city that I have never seen. What you decide to cut (sometimes also the duration of stay abroad or how many cities you see) will depend on your visit to Europe. It's important that you find a way to travel your dreams to your chosen country, and I hope this article will help you find a way to work with limited budget.
