Travelling by train is already the best way to enjoy your European vacation because you get to see more countries and beautiful destinations even on a tight budget. But still, if you don't plan things right, your vacation might end up with so much spending. For those who love to travel by train, here are five travel hacks and budget tips for your European train trip.

Plan Your Itinerary

Train travelers should take note that last minute changes in your plans will result in a change in fees as well. According to Rail Europe, making reservations beforehand would lock down the price that you want before you start your journey.

Another budget tip to take note of is that purchasing separate passes for shorter trips would cost lesser. This is the reason why planning ahead of time is really important

Book Your Trips Early

Early bookings on sites like trainline would mean cheaper prices. This travel hack isn't really a shocker for most travelers because it's quite the same thing with airplane fares and most ticket deals. 

Get An Overnight Train Trip

Instead of spending money booking for a hotel reservation, why not get an overnight trip. It would be cheaper and you'll have the whole day touring sights and other beautiful spots when you arrive at your destination. Just be sure that you make advance reservations for sleepers and couchettes according to Independent Traveler.

Look For A Travel Buddy

Most rail passes offer group discounts so make sure that you travel with someone to save more money. Travel agencies would usually give discounts to groups that have two to five people. Just make sure that the group will stay intact all throughout the trip because there's only a single pass given for the whole group.

Make Use Of Bonuses

Rail passes usually come with bonuses because they tie up with local restaurants, museums, and shopping stores. Make sure that you take advantage of these offers because it will save you a lot of money.

Now that you know some of these travel hacks and tips, all you need to do is to plan out your European trip. It will definitely be a different experience saving more money in your travels.
