Aug 18, 2007
Because the US once mighty dollar has suffered in worth against many currencies around the world, US citizens traveling for their vacation to Europe has become more expensive than in the past. I have written very practical tips on European travel so you may have a much easier time while traveling within Europe.

1) You can exchange money in Europe the easiest and the most affordable way by using an automated teller machine. To be very safe, at your bank learn what type of charges it records for using your bank card for currency exchange; some banks will impose amazingly high charges. Let your bank know that you will be traveling in Europe so that their detection equipment doesn't block your activities.

2) Make photocopies of your passport and plane tickets and place them in your carry-on bag, just in case you lose something.

3) If you must drive during your travel in Europe, you will need a decent detailed map for the regions you will visit. Do not waste time shopping for a regional map at the last minute; get it as soon as possible before leaving home.

4) Buy a new guidebook: A new guidebook of the countries you will be visiting will be very useful. You'll practical information such as when certain sights are open and close, phone numbers. Dot not buy an outdated guidebook; you'll be frustrated and lose precious time.

5) Don't try to see & do too much: Try to concentrate on experiencing only a few countries instead of every country in Europe. If you are on a tour, consider staying no less than two nights in certain destinations.

6) Transportation: Decide on how you want to travel within Europe. Driving offers more flexibility; it can become impractical at certain times, depending where you are in Europe. If you are flying, you can hire a car. You can use budget airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet.

7) Security of possession awareness: to maintain peace of mind, use a money belt or a hotel safe. Never put all of your cash and credit cards in only one wallet or purse. Because if you happen to lose either one, you are in big trouble.

8) Speak the language: If it's within your grasp, make a fair attempt to learn a few practical words of the language spoken in one of the European countries you'll be visiting.

9) Be flexible in your traveling schedule: For a more pleasant traveling experience with no frustrations, try to allow time to roam around and to relish a carefree lunch. It's a great idea to develop an itinerary in order to experience more of Europe. On the other hand, you can still be flexible.

10) Book your accommodation in advance: why? You will avoid wasting a lot of time searching from one hotel to another for an available room.
