You will find prices in Switzerland and Scandinavia extremely high so avoid if you have a small budget. 
  • Transport: A very good transport system operates in Europe, there is a good bus / rail network whilst lots of cheap flight operators run services throughout the continent - book in advance for the best deals. Low cost airlines including EasyJet, Ryan Air and Wizz Air offer budget flights throughout the continent. Megabus operate cheap bus journeys throughout Europe, if you book in advance you can make big savings and some journeys start from only £1. You could also buy an interrail pass.
  • Food & Drink: Expect some of the tastiest food in the world, every country offers something different. If you are on a budget be sure to visit supermarkets to buy bread, sandwich fillings and food, this is much cheaper than eating out as eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner this can quickly eat away at your purse strings. Throughout the continent there are usually great deals on lunch specials, you might want to eat a large lunch and then just have a light bite for dinner which will save you money.
