trips to europe

tricks and links to help you make the most of travelling whilst learning a language

Budapest

When travelling to Europe there are of course, certain companies and services which are super useful to use, that you can only know once you’ve been there and used them.
I’ve collated a few of the trustworthy ones I use to get around, book transport on or choose to stay at.

 

trains & buses

I book my travels with Omio when taking trains and buses in Europe. They have many routes covered and you can get mobile tickets straight to your phone. I used this to skip the kiosk queues in Brussels— a great travel hack.

flights

I look at Skyscanner or Google Flights to get an overview of the entire month.

accomodation

Check out AirBnb, Booking.com or Expedia.
If you’re travelling to Asia, try Agoda.
