European Savage Course Short
Blessed be, united Europe, which gives the holders of Schengen visas the opportunity to quietly move between a dozen countries of the Old World. If you are among the lucky ones – spit on travel agencies and go to Europe savage. The opportunity to independently plan your route, save money and get an unforgettable experience of the trip is guaranteed! TECHNICAL TRAINING It is best to plan an independent overseas trip a few months before the expected departure date. After all, the earlier you buy tickets and book hotel rooms, the cheaper it costs you, Honorable traveler. Prepare for the fact that once you go to the civilized world, then you will have to pay for your travel and accommodation via the Internet. To do this, you will need to acquire a suitable payment card. To pay via the World Wide Web, on the card to the right of your signature must be a so-called CVV-code, which consists of three digits. If it is on your map – replenish it with money and plot your route. But at the same time remember: when paying for goods and services on the Internet, you need to adhere to two elementary, but mandatory safety rules. First – do not use unknown foreign and domestic sites.
Secondly, before making a payment, call the bank and authorize online payments, after completing the payment, call the bank again and block Internet payments. HOW TO LEAVE THE MOTHERLAND Direct preparation for an independent trip abroad, like any reconnaissance operation, must begin with the development of a route. To begin with, you need to choose the starting point of your trip to United Europe. Chose? Well done! Now let’s figure out how to get there. Unfortunately, Ukraine is in the Stone Age in terms of tourism infrastructure, even outbound. Therefore, the Ukrainian tourist has only two options to leave his homeland: subject himself to prolonged physical suffering in order to get to one of the Western European countries by bus or train within a day, or to pay one of the Ukrainian oligarchs crazy money and rush off to almost anywhere in the world by plane . In any case, it is such options that offer our traveller’s travel brother. If you have a lot of money – you can listen to them. Well, for those who like to save, there is another way: we open the Internet and go to the website www.skyscanner.net – here you can calculate the cost of a flight to Europe through the Baltic countries. Another option is www.alitalia.com, the Italian airline that connects Kiev via Milan to the whole of the Old World. Of course, you will have to make a transfer, but at this inconvenience you can save up to 30% of the cost of a direct flight from Kiev if you buy tickets a month before the trip. FLYING! OR EATING … Now that you’ve cut your window to Europe, you have an easy and pleasant selection process. And he is just crazy: at your service – cheap flights, bus and train service between virtually all European cities, and finally, thousands of hotels for every taste and pocket.
Hour of time spent – and you already know that you can fly from Stuttgart to Barcelona for EUR50, and from Amsterdam to Paris – for EUR37. Just pay attention to which airports discounters take you to. Sometimes they land damn far from the city, and all the pleasure of cheap flight is overlaid by a taxi bill … There are no suitable options for air traffic? Take a look at the website www.eurolines.com – at your disposal are buses that, for EUR10-30, will take you to almost anywhere in Europe. But remember that this option has its own nuances: buses do not go every day and sometimes leave the Schengen zone. And in this case, if you do not have a transit visa, you risk to stay with things on the autobahn. So carefully study the bus routes before buying a ticket. The third option to move across United Europe is the train. You can always consult the websites of the railways of the countries you need at the best travel forum – www.virtualtourist.net. In this case, keep in mind that the train – one of the most expensive types of transport in Europe. BOOKING THE HOTEL Having painted our movement across Europe by days, you can start searching for a roof over your head in those cities where you plan to stay more than a day. In this regard, you have complete freedom – there are hundreds of sites for booking hotels, guest houses and hostels (youth hostels) on the Internet. Perhaps, we will start with hotels – individual rooms are ready to provide European travelers with both hotels and guest houses.
The hotel is a soulless car with a staff of cleaners and concierges, and a guest house is a family-owned business that only manages a few people. Hence the main difference between them: traveling and young couples stay in hotels, while guest houses suggest a quiet and thoughtful rest near the fireplace with a book in hand and a personal acquaintance with the owner who will pour you coffee in the morning. Medium-sized European hotels are “sold” from EUR60 per night. Guest house rooms start at EUR40. So if you want to live isolated from other travelers, then at your service www.venere.com, www.gtahotels.com and www.guideglobal.com. Reviews of the selected hotel can be found on www.tripadviser.com. If on a trip you want to find new friends and acquaintances, then you can try to live in a hostel – a youth hostel in a European way. A classic hostel is a few huge rooms with 5-6 bunk beds. Accordingly, the rest in this room you will only dream of. Therefore, in order to avoid unnecessary disturbances from guests, that “someone got drunk and sings songs at 3 o’clock in the morning,” the hostel owners limit their guests to 26-30 years old. If you fall into this age corridor, I can advise you www.hostelbookers.com/hostels and www.gomio.com. Just carefully read the reviews about the hostel you have chosen – there are often bedbugs there 🙂 This problem is especially relevant for London and Amsterdam, where not the mother’s children with two changes of bed linen go to rest.
