Whether you’re taking a Spring Break trip or are planning on studying abroad in Europe, there are a lot of resources designed for students to help you along the way. No matter your destination, check out our top student travel resources below!
Hotel rooms can add up quickly. Hostels are a great way to save money on accomodations on your trip! A hostel is essentially a shared place to stay where you’ll usually share a room with other guests. (If that scares you, don’t worry! Many hostels don’t have coed rooms, and usually have private or at least same-sex bathrooms.) Beyond the low prices, hostels also emphasize the whole “shared experience,” with meals and activities for guests to get to know each other. With Hostelworld, you can search hostels in over 170 countries and read reviews from previous guests to find the best place for you.
You’re probably no stranger to Airbnb, and for good reason! Airbnb is a great way to travel and save money on lodging. You can find rooms available for the night or rent an entire place to yourself, which is a great way to cut costs by splitting the nightly rate with friends. Airbnb has vacation rentals in hundreds of countries, and even offers local activities to immerse yourself wherever you are.
Traveling around Europe? Doing it by train is one of the best ways to see it! Not only is it cheaper than traveling by plane, but you’ll get to experience the countryside by train and see things you normally wouldn’t by air. Eurail offers global passes, which give you access to 33 European countries. You can also choose a one-country pass if you’ll only be traveling around one country. You’ll choose how many days you need your pass for, and from there, you’re ready to board the train!
Free Walking Tours
Want to see a new city on a budget? Do some research to see what free walking tours are offered there! Many cities provide these to tourists as a budget-friendly way to show people their city’s main attractions. You’ll see the sights and get some exercise in – win-win!
If planning every minute of a trip isn’t for you, consider going on a student tour. These are a great way to travel with friends and explore new places, and the best part is, all the hard work is done for you!
