Traveling Across Europe Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated: Here’s How To Navigate The Transport System Like A Pro

Europe is an exciting region to explore; there are different sights to see in every country you head to. Most tourists travel across European countries in a short span of time, so the transport system is convenient. However, it can seem complicated to navigate. However, the trick is knowing the most common transport options in different areas. In this article, we’ll talk about the different methods and their features.

Car Hire

The Car Hire option allows you to move around more flexibly, regardless of where you are in Europe. Although it is relatively expensive, Car Hire is even more costly in countries like France and Ireland. But you shouldn’t rule it out cause there’s a way for you to ‘hack’ it.

If you plan to explore several European countries, you can hire a car in Germany for a more affordable price. Then, drive through France and other surrounding countries- this will save costs significantly.

Air Travel

Traveling by air isn’t so common in Europe because other options offer better sightseeing experiences. However, it can be a cost-effective option to explore Europe if you’re visiting Ireland or surrounding countries, as there are cheap flights.

Aside from Ireland, there are also other countries you can take flights to without breaking the bank. The trick here is to research and compare prices. You can cheaply fly from Italy to Spain, you just have to look for deals. 

Cruises and Ferries

Of course, sea travel is a common system in Europe. Gone are those days when cruises were only for old people. From the Mediterranean to Northern Europe, cruises are becoming more popular- and they can be incredibly cheap.

What we love most about cruises is that you can check in at once without worrying about unpacking; you can just sleep in one location and wake up in another. Ferries are also perfect for traveling around the water.

Train Travel

Traveling by train is probably the most common system in Europe. It allows travelers to enjoy the countryside view; you can easily take beautiful pictures through the window. Another good thing about train travel is that getting a train pass is easy.

However, it’s important to know that not every part of Europe is easily accessible by train. In Central and Western Europe, you can have a smooth train ride to almost anywhere. But in Eastern Europe, you should inquire about your destinations in advance.

Bus Travel

Although buses aren’t as fast as trains, they are also a popular transport medium in Europe. The most amazing benefit of traveling by bus in Europe is the low cost. If you’re traveling on a budget, going by bus is necessary.

Buses are also your surest bet if traveling across Eastern Europe because trains are not so common there. However, you must confirm the available buses to your destinations to avoid mix-ups.
