Planning your European Travel
I’ve used a variety of travel insurance in the last 5 years but the one I always use on my travels to Europe is Care Concept. It’s cheap, it covers entire Europe and it’s perfect for Schengen visa application because it fits the embassy requirements and you can get refunded fully if you get denied.
Booking.com – Booking.com is my top choice for booking all my hotels in Europe because they have the most comprehensive inventory of properties in the continent. They even do flash sale for 50% off every now and then.
Airbnb – The biggest directory of apartments, homes and unusual spaces by owners themselves. It’s usually cheaper than hotels and sometimes much more cheaper than hostels if you share it with friends. I love staying at a local’s house. If your host is great he/she can point you to amazing things, spots and experiences about their city. Sign up here and get your FREE 18 euros credit for your first night from me!
Couchsurfing – I’ve hosted and surfed couches since 2007. I rarely do it now but it’s always fun to meet with locals via this website. Plus I use it to ask very specific questions in the local forums. This site has been very useful to me for so many reasons besides the obvious free accommodation.
Airlines within Europe
FIRSTLY: Avoid Ryanair as much as possible. They are horrible and they will fuck you over.
Vueling – one of my favorite airlines. Good prices and flies to most destinations all over Europe. And their airline magazine is one of the best I’ve seen from low-cost airlines
Wizzair – European low-cost airline based in Eastern Europe, lots of cheap flights from Poland, Hungary etc. I use to fly them a lot when I was based in Warsaw.
Air Berlin – a bit more expensive but flies you to major airports; great service and they replaced my luggage when it got broken! I’m a loyal customer.
Easyjet – same as Air Berlin, pricier but it gets you to major airports in Europe
For a list of other low-cost no-frills airlines in Europe, there’s a comprehensive list here.
For cheap flight search, I use the following websites:
Skyscanner – super easy to use and I always find good deals!
Exchange rates – www.xe.com
