HostelsClub.com launches an amazing offer for all US Citizens; yes, they have been watching the news, they’ve checked the $ to € conversion , they added a bit of budget travel , they have added some oz of the best European hostels and mixed it all up into an explosive cocktail offer: the 1$=1€ for Top Hostels in Europe! “ What is that all about? 1$ now has the same value of 1€?? Yeah right……” Hey! It’s true! Check this out: http://www.hostelsclub.com/usoffer . All American citizens have now again a great opportunity to really backpack Europe on a budget; book one of the hostels or cheap accommodations participating to the offer through Hostelsclub.com, once you check in present your US passport and you will get more than 30% discount on your stay; here is a practical example: let’s say that at your arrival you have to pay 50€ for your stopover, well show your US passport and you will only have to pay 50 $ (€ 36.76 with the current rate exchange)!The offer doesn’t only include the main Euro Area Destinations such as Venice, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam, Athens, Rome etc. but, if you are going off the beaten track you can also find the same offer for hostels and cheap accommodations in “minor” European cities like Verona, Lucca, Munich, Nice, Ibiza etc.
The offer comes at a time where backpacking and budget travelling to Europe becomes more and more difficult for US Citizens to consider; high fuel prices, high airfares, weak dollar , crises of the financial sector make it difficult to embark on a Backpacking frenzy in the now expensive European capitals; the offer thus comes really handy for considering Europe as a valid alternative to the unfortunately too popular “stayvacation” in the US.
Here are some additional tips for travelling Europe on a budget:
·Become a local in the places where you travel: sometimes guides and magazines won’t give you the best tips on where to eat and hang out; they tend to give you the most common places that may turn out to be not so cheap after all; so talk and questions to locals! Ask them where they usually eat without spending a fortune; in Venice and Paris for example going where locals eat guarantees you the great combination of quality food and an inexpensive bill. You can use our travel community Travelers For Travelers to find locals wherever you go.
·When you get to a city go straight to the tourist office to find out what city card passes they provide; most cities now have bargain city passes that offer free public transport and discounts on the major city attractions . If you spend 4 days in Barcelona (where, by the way you, can sleep at the Barcelona Urbany Hostel, which participates to the 1$=1€ Hostel Offer) don’t forget to buy the Barcelona City Card for € 34; it will grant you free public transport for the whole stay , plenty of discounts for museums, for leisure attractions , for shops and restaurant, and even a free English city guide.
·Travel Europe by train instead of by car; don’t forget that in Europe gas prices are high as well, and that when you rent a car you have plenty of additional fees such as insurance , parking, tolls etc. You can easily get a rail pass to make the most out of Europe. If you are planning to stay in Europe for a while, enjoy the Global Pass, it allows to travel through more than European countries by train from € 159.
To all the American Citizens, Enjoy Europe and the 1€=1$ Top Hostel Offer by HostelsClub.com!! Check out the details
