Top 5 Tips for Saving Money and Time on a European Trip

Save Time and Money Without Sacrificing Luxury

How to Save Money in EuropeIn my 100+ trips to Europe, I have learned quite a bit.  I have learned how to save money and time on airfares, hotels, tours, meals, and transportation.  But I never pinch pennies at the expense of comfort.  For instance, I would not choose to save $200 on a flight if the savings meant that I would need multiple connections or endure 24+ hour flights over a direct flight.  I would not choose to stay in a hostel outside of city limits over a centrally located comfortable hotel just to save 25 euros a night.  Check out The Professor's practical travel tips to save time and money on your next international trip to Europe.

Paris Museum Pass

The Paris Museum Pass is a pay-one-price pass for unlimited no-wait-in-line admission to over 60 Paris attractions including the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée de l'Orangerie, and Musée Rodin.  Imagine walking up to the Orsay one Sunday to see the line stretch hundreds of yards around the building then walk right into the VIP entrance ahead of everyone else?  That's just one advantage of the Paris Museum Pass.   We use it on every small group tour to Paris.  Read the blog post for more information on the features and benefits of the Paris Museum Pass.
