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.
