How to travel Germany cheap: Explore Germany on a limited budget
Pick off season
The most effective way of deducting a huge amount of your Germany travelling expenditure is travelling during off season.
Remember that you’re not alone who is passionate about the exploration of Germany. Instead, there are millions of rich people whose favorite tour destination is Germany. And, almost all of them pick either summer or winter for pastime.
This is why you should choose a travelling week that comes neither in winter nor in summer.
If anything makes your pocket in an instant that is obviously the fare of the flight. This is why you must be a bit tactful before confirming the flight ticket.
No, we are not telling you to be eloquent and impress the airline organization. What we want you to be is an online researcher. You should visit the websites of different airline organizations to look for the best deal.
Have sharp eyes for a week and whenever you feel like any of the organizations has reduced the fare significantly, confirm the ticket instantly.
Put up in a hostel
Avoid putting up in a hotel rather in a hostel about which we recommend you to do a lot of online research even before you confirm the flight ticket. There are many cost-effective hostels all over Germany. Visit the sites of each to make a comparison of the rent.
Share the room
If you need the room just for storing the luggage securely and for sleeping at night, not for romance with the beloved, it is wise to share the room with one or two other travellers. This will help you save a handsome amount.
Now the question is – how can you manage the room partners? In this case, you must be eloquent and an extrovert undoubtedly.
Start making spontaneous conversation with your fellow travellers from airport to flight. Ask their purpose of travelling with decency and share your thoughts gradually. If you’re lucky, you may find someone with the same attitude and thinking.
Rent an apartment
In case you are not alone rather travelling with family or friends, you should rent an apartment instead of staying in a hotel. Apartment rent is far cheaper than that of a large hotel room.
In addition, by renting an apartment you can save another handsome amount on food as you can cook by yourself.
To rent out apartments all over Germany, there are many online sites. You should visit those and compare the rent.
Eat budget-friendly food
While travelling on a little budget, it is never wise to be fastidious about food. Rather your focus should be on food that is cheap and healthy at a time.
For this we recommend you to have food from the roadside food carts or normal departmental stores. Don’t be worried about food hygiene and quality because Germans are morally good.
Get city passes
Mega cities including Berlin and Frankfurt offer city passes to the travellers. The passes allow you to visit many tourist attractions for a reduced amount.
But, don’t have the passes if you aren’t going to visit many tourist spots because the passes will cost you more than usual.
Look for entry-free spots

Keep your student ID
If you are currently a student, especially a student from an internationally recognized institution, you must keep the ID with you. The reason is – hotels, show sights, museums, movie theatres and swimming pools may have a decent amount of discount offer for you.
Travel by bus
