Planning your journey into the unknown
Europe is a big place with numerous countries which all have something to offer. To help you narrow down where you might want to go, here is a list of the top places to visit in Europe:

  • Ancient City Walls of Dubrovnik- this landmark is a magnificent, ancient military fortification and the highlight of this coastal town


Getting out and about
One of the great things about visiting Europe is that you can easily get from one country to another and experience the delights of a variety of cultures all in one trip. By finding reliable Europe car rentals, you can plan your trip to be able to see a vast number of landmarks across several borders.
To plan your route, start by choosing the country you want to start at (and where you will pick up your rental car) and then research the countries on the border, focusing on what sights you want to see in each. Using an app like google maps can help you plan an exact driving route to print off before you set off on the adventure of a lifetime.

Keeping your pockets full
The only problem with going on a fantastical journey around Europe is having to worry about how you are going to afford it all. Taking the time to find some easy ways to save money on holiday will help you to make the right choice to ensure you see as much as you can for as little as possible:

  • Travelling offseason is the best way to save money, as hotels and flights are cheaper and the places you want to be will be less busy.
  • Finding a local market and stocking up on essentials so that you can make your own breakfast and lunch will give you more money to see new things.
  • Flights with stop-overs tend to be cheaper, so if you can stand the longer journey, it is definitely worth it.
