5 Reasons Why Traveling To Paris Won't Break The Bank

This is a contributed post, written by Laura Scott.

For many people, Paris is thought of as a very expensive destination. It’s the European capital of romance and culture, and you need to pay through the nose for it has to offer, right? Wrong! Actually, traveling to Paris can be very affordable. And to show you how it’s done here is our ultimate guide to keeping all your costs down when you’re visiting the French capital.




Budget Airlines
As with any kind of travel, you can keep it cheap by booking budget travel! These days, there are loads of airlines offering very competitively priced flight tickets. Of course, they might not offer loads of frills, but that’s to be expected if you’re not paying a lot! Another way to travel cheaply is to look for indirect flights. Sure, changing can add on a few hours to your travel itinerary, but it will also cut off a few dollars from your bill!
Hire A Car
Paris is known for an extensive public transport system. It’s that big; even the locals get confused easily! It can also cost you quite a bit to use if you travel on it every day of your stay. The best way to cut down on travel expenses is to hire a car. You pay a set price for the length of time you have the car. You can then use it as much as you like! So if you are planning on traveling around Paris’s surrounding countryside, a car can really save you money. Don’t worry about parking, either. You can check where to park in Paris cheaply online.




Buy A Museum Pass
So much culture! Where do you begin? While you’re trying to figure out your best starting point, you might as well buy a Museum Pass. You can buy a pass that covers two, four, or six days. During this time, entrance to the city’s museums and galleries is included in your pass price! So you can see as much as possible for just one price!


Airbnb
Hotels in Paris are certainly romantic and sophisticated, but they also come with a hefty price tag to match all their style! One way to save money on your accommodation is to book a room on Airbnb. This is a cool, innovative website that lets locals rent out their spare rooms. The rooms are often a lot cheaper than hotel and even hostel rooms! And what’s more, you’ll be staying with a local who can give you loads of useful tips on what to see and where to go.


Get Money Changed At Home
The French currency is the Euro, so you will need to change your dollars at some point. To get the best exchange rate, do this at home before you leave. Whatever happens, don’t be tempted to change money at an airport. They are some of the most expensive places to get your money exchanged! Try not to withdraw money using your credit card in Paris, either. Banks tend to slap on large fees for taking money out abroad!
