This is why most backpackers that troop to Europe are composed of students and younger experts. With backpacking, they could be able to go to more locations and make lots of traveling thoughts and experiences without having to spend a lot of money. One of the main reasons why backpacking is a cheap way to tour Europe is the fact that Europe can be interconnected by trains and buses. This means you do not have to spend a lot of money on airfare to move around (e.g. a one-way journey from London to Paris via Eurostar Trains is as low as £39).


Cheap lodging – aside from cheap transportation, backpackers are also able to stay in many budgets and backpacking hotels. These kinds of cheap hotels can be found all over Europe. You can be able to find good lodging that is both comfortable and affordable in most major towns around Europe.

Aside from this, you can also join a backpacking forum or lodging website. This is a place wherein backpackers from all over the world offer guest rooms to other backpackers for free or for a small price.

If you are in Paris, you can check out the Plug-Inn Hostel (for $34 USD per night). I’d also recommend City Backpackers when you’re in Stockholm as it also costs $34 USD per night time.

Safe environment – because most of the countries in Europe are well developed, you can expect a good police system that ensures everyone is safe. In fact, backpackers can sleep in train stations to await their next train without worrying about getting mugged. This is one of the main appeals of backpacking in Europe.
