France Budget Travel Tips


If you’ve been contemplating a trip to France but concerned about the cost, don’t be. While some people may have the impression that a visit to the country is only for the wealthy, these tips will demonstrate that you can have a good time there without going over your budget.

Save on Lodging Expenses 

Hotels in big cities are expensive, so stay in a small town. If you’re planning to visit Paris, consider staying in Chartes, a city that’s just a train ride away but with low lodging rates. If you really want to stay in a hotel, take a look at some of the one-star hotels there, as many actually offer comfortable lodging at a rate you can afford. And if you’re the adventurous type, you may want to try camping, as it offers you a unique way to experience France.



Travel by Rail

Get a rail pass if your itinerary involves long distance travel because it’s cheaper compared to the point to point tickets. However, rail pass is only cost effective if you’re going to cover long distances, so you should work out the figures first. 

Money Matters

Make sure you bring just enough money for your transportation and basic needs. If you need more Euros, go to an ATM (there’s plenty of them in France) or have it charged to your credit card. Don’t go to any money exchange service as they have very high charges.

Save on Dining 

If your hotel provides breakfast for free, by all means take advantage of it. Otherwise you can skip the hotel breakfast and go to a cafe and have your fill of cafe au lait and croissant at a much lower price. To avoid any misunderstanding with your hotel, inform them the moment you check in that you don’t want any breakfast. This way you can avoid being charged extra. 

There are other ways that you can cut down on your dining expenses. For instance you can just order one large French meal rather than pay for several small ones, and if you’re going to order, make it a point to do it at lunch time as it will be cheaper compared to dinner even though the servings are the same. There are numerous big sized meals you can try, and one of the best is the prix fixe menu which includes appetizer, entree, and dessert. For a little bit more money, they’ll even throw in a free glass of wine.

Save on Travel

A rental car can be expensive and is only necessary if you’re bringing a lot of luggage or travelling to small villages or out of the way towns. The best option for budget travelers is the public transit, as they allow you to go from city to city and town to town easily.  



Finally, there’s no reason you should pay for an expensive insurance policy as cheap travel insurance is widely available. Contrary to what some believe, there are several cheap travel insurance policies that provide comprehensive cover, including pre-existing medical condition, cover for valuables and extreme sports activities, so it’s worth getting one.

The Best Ways To Exercise Your Dog


We all love man`s best friend – the dog – for which we try to do our best for them. One of the things especially important is bringing them for walks and they love it even more than us. As winter begins to creep in, the cold air and rainy evenings can easily hinder our exercising intentions. It is essential that your dog get as much exercise in winter as they would in the summer months. Even if you can’t bring them for a walk there are plenty of more ways to make sure they exude their energy. Making sure your dog exercises is just as important as having pet health insurance or looking after their veterinary requirements. Here are a few ideas to keep your dog active. 

Stairs
Using the stairs in your house is a great way to tire your dog out. Your dog will get endless entertainment from running up and down the stairs and the steps will add an additional workout compared to your usual walk around the local roads or park. Engage your dog by standing at the top of the stairs with a toy, throw it to the bottom of the stairs and play fetch. After a few rounds of this you’ll certainly be filling a bowl of water for your little pup.

Dogs on stairs
Obstacle Course
Dogs love to play with, tug and pull at absolutely everything. How often has your dog entered the home to instantly look around for something that can be used for his or her own entertainment? Why not make this an exercise routine and create an obstacle course with different items from around the house, basement and garage? Use your kid’s old hula hoop as a target to jump through or build a tunnel with cushions. Lead your dog through a series of different obstacles and you will be sure to have created a physical and mental challenge for your favorite pet.

Dogs play

Treadmill
A great way to get your dog active in the winter months is by introducing them to the treadmill. It is essential that you slowly introduce your dog to the treadmill to ensure that they adapt to the motion and the sound. Place your dog on the treadmill when it is off and give him a treat, slowly turn it on to the lowest speed. Give your dog treats to keep him on the treadmill, he will slowly get used to it and enjoy the exercise. You and your dog may feel more comfortable by using a leash; this may only be required for initial stability.

Tug of War
Tug of War is a great game for dog owners to play with their favourite pets. Before playing this game, be confident that you have a very healthy, trusting relationship with your dog as it can bring the predator our in your dog. Your dog will get right into the spirit of the game, as will you; it's guaranteed to have both pet and owner working up a sweat. 

They’re just a few great ways to get your dog active indoors. Avoid the lazy winter slump and use your imagination to come up with even more ideas to get your dog exercising, it’s simple, its healthy and most of all, it’s fun!

A Few Great Ideas for Getting Off your Beaten Track

Looking to do something a bit different from your normal holiday? The concept of ‘off beaten track’ is a bit different for everyone. We all have our favorite places to go but sometimes when wanderlust hits, its time to explore new territories. Thankfully there are simple ways to test your own personal limits and do something interesting. Some of them might even be easier than you think!

Go Local
If you’re short on time or your budget is limited, why not do something new and different close to home? Chances are there are exciting things to do close to home. Pretend you’re a tourist and see your local attractions in a whole new light. There might be a mountain to climb or a famous landmark you've never even been to.

Get Outside your Comfort Zone
While we’re on the subject, getting off the beaten track could be as simple as doing something you’ve never done before. If you've never been hiking, climb that mountain we mentioned. Or, take a car trip across the country (if you live in a small one), stopping along the way to see the sights. Go skiing, go to the opera for the first time or visit a hot Cuban dance club. It’s all about trying new things.


Take to the Water
It’s not something we think about every day, but everyone should feel what it’s like to spend a few days (or a week!) on a boat. This is a way to literally expand your horizons! The easiest way would be to try canal boating for a slow relaxing holiday with family or friends. Or, join a sailing crew on a bare boat charter. From luxury crewed charters to rigorous sailing expeditions, if there’s an ocean near you, you can experience sailing first hand.


Be a Tourist in your Own City
Sometimes we become so used to our surroundings that we forget the wonder that tourists experience when seeing the place for the first time. Why not rent a hotel room with a view of the city and go out to dinner and the theater? You can also take a walking tour of the city’s landmarks, or do something fun like an organised pub crawl or gourmet tour.


Keep life fresh and interesting by doing new things- get off your own beaten track and create new memories!
