Odds are, if you’re on a budget and trying to travel to Europe, then you’re probably looking for the cheapest way to get there safe and sound.  “Is that even possible?”, you may be asking. In a sense, no, but in another sense, yes.  As stated in some other articles that I wrote, timing and patience is usually the key to finding great deals, which in the end can save you hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars.

What really is the cheapest way to get to Europe?

When planning a vacation, you have to think about ways to get to your destination. You need to ask yourself,  “Will I travel by car, boat, train or plane?”  If you live in the Americas and you’re trying to get to Europe, you’re definitely going to need to take either a plane or a boat to get there(unless there’s some bridge I don’t know about).  Cruises or boats are a fun and easy way to get to your destination, but the downside is that they typically are expensive and take awhile to get to where you want to go.

Flying to Europe is really the best, most quickest way and of course, cheapest way to get to Europe. With so many Airlines operating, it may be difficult to find the best price though.  Sites like Expedia, CheapAir, Priceline and so on are able to aggregate and gather the best prices for plane tickets, but they usually aren’t able to find all the airlines, like the ones that really offer the lowest price. With new upcoming airlines such as Norweigan Air, you can find flights for hundreds of dollars cheaper than you would, say British Airways or Air France. The point is, do your research and be patient. You will reap better results than if you buy the first thing you see. Happy travels!
