What is Most Popular, Travelling Across Europe or Party Holidays?
One of the great things about being in your student days is that you often have more time free to travel and see the world. There are so many ways to see the world too, from backpacking from place to place to going on a party holiday in the summer. No matter what type of European holiday you choose to go on this year, be sure to carry your European Health Insurance Card with you. The modern EHIC is a replacement of the E111 and can purchase one on the E111 website - it lasts for 5 years and ensures you are able to receive free or discounted healthcare should you need it over the duration of your travels.
Travelling through Europe
One of the most popular ways of travelling through Europe is through backpacking along Europe’s vast network of railways. Travelling through Europe by train is easy and cost effective and really allows you the freedom to stay as long as you need in each respective city. A Eurail Pass is ideal for students on a budget as it allows access to travel the railways of up to 27 countries. If you are looking to travel extensively, this is a fab option for you as you will be able to have an authentic travel experience and see parts of countries that you wouldn’t if you simply caught a flight. There are regular deals on offer for students when it comes to other forms of travel too- keep an eye out online and sign up to travel newsletters wherever you can as sometimes the best deals come to those who seek them.
It’s no secret that Europe knows how to throw a bloody good party! From incredible live venues, legendary festivals and outstanding live music experiences- Europe if the place to go if you are a music lover. No matter what sort of music you enjoy, there is a European destination for you. While places like Ibiza and Budapest are well known for their club scene, there are other parts of Europe like Croatia and the Netherlands that are emerging when it comes to music. If music isn’t your thing and you simply want to chill out and dance the night away and meet some like-minded people then why not organise an affordable trip to somewhere like Berlin or a Greek island?
If you are unsure of what sort of holiday you would like to go on next, consider the sorts of activities you enjoy doing. Do you enjoy long journeys? Are you an avid music fan? Consider whether you would like to travel alone of with a friend and check your budgeting options before booking your trip- music festivals can be expensive, for example. Or why not get the best of both worlds and combine both travelling through countries with attending a music event! The most important thing to always remember is to stay as safe as possible when travelling. Keeping you wits about you and being aware of your surroundings at all times will ensure your trip goes as smoothly as possible.
