穷游欧洲的实用小贴士

  I recently embarked on a 16-day adventure through Europe: five nights in Paris, two nights in Milan, two nights in Rome and five nights in London. Sounds expensive, doesn't it? It doesn't have to be. Here are my secrets on how I saved tons of money on this vacation!

  我最近刚刚结束16天的欧洲之旅,在巴黎待了五晚,米兰罗马各两晚,外加伦敦五晚。听起来花了不少,实际上却不是这样哦。下面来给大家说说我是怎么发挥穷游精神省下一大笔开销的吧!

  Fly Round Trip.

  飞往返航班。

  I started scoping out flights months in advance, and what I noticed is that round trip flights to Europe were way cheaper than flying to one country and then home from another. So I booked a round trip to London, which only cost about $600 per person (including taxes and fees). The trip started in Paris, which meant getting on another (separately booked) flight from London to Paris once we arrived, but then I ended our trip in London for easy access going home.

  我数月之前就订好了机票,还发现往返欧洲的机票远比到达一个城市再从另一个城市离开要便宜的多。所以我定了伦敦的往返机票,大概一个人600美元(包含了税和机建费)。旅行从巴黎开始,也就是说我还需要额外定一个从伦敦到巴黎的航班,但我们旅行的最终目的地还是伦敦。

  Stay Longer.

  待久点。

  If you are investing in a $600 flight to Europe, my strategy is to "see it now, while you are here" to get your money's worth. The only catch? The longer you are away from home, the more money you spend on food and other expenses, so it's all about finding a balance between the two. Overall, I wouldn’t opt to fly to Paris for just two nights if you can help it, though – might as well stay longer if you are spending the money to fly across the Atlantic!

  如果你花了600美元去欧洲,我的想法是“既来之则安之”,要让机票钱花的物有所值。唯一的麻烦?你离家越久,花在食物和其他方面的开销越大,所以需要找到二者之间的平衡点。总的来说,我不会只在巴黎待两晚——毕竟你可是花了钱横渡大西洋!

  Visit Fewer Cities.

  少观赏点城市。

  Every city I added on to the trip added another major expense. One-way flights and train rides between cities in Europe are often only about $100 per person, but they add up quickly. Looking back, I wish I would have skipped Milan and just gone to three cities on this trip to save even more money.

  每个我加进行程的城市都增加了额外一大笔开销。欧洲城市之间的航班和飞机大概每人一百美元,但算在一起也不得了。现在回想起来,我希望当初跳过米兰,只去另外三个城市,能省一大笔钱。
