Flights

Many trips will start with a flight, and this is especially true if you are travelling internationally. You can use a website such as Google Flights, KAYAK and Momondo to start searching for your tickets. They compare fares across most major airlines which helps you find the best price.

Flights via Google

We really like the Flight Search tool that Google offers. We find it easy to search for flights and connections and then click through and book should you find what you want. It’s also incredibly quick and easy to add additional filters to narrow down your results.

Alternative providers: KAYAK, Momondo and of course direct if you have a preferred airline.


Trains and Buses

Trains offer a fast and comfortable way to get around (although not quite as fast as flying of course). When booking trains then do your research and try and travel off-peak, such as if peak prices are a lot more expensive. You can also sometimes get sleeper trains which allow you to travel overnight and then wake up at your destination. This can offer the added benefit of saving on a nights accommodation.

Buses

Another way to travel is by getting a bus and if you’re travelling around Europe you’ll find various coach companies offering incredibly cheap prices.

Buses via Flixbus

Flixbus are one of our favourite bus companies and we’ve used them many times before. They offer extensive connections all across Europe (and now the USA too), and often for super cheap prices. You can also often find night buses which are a great way to travel whilst you sleep and then arrive at your destination in the morning. This saves on accommodation so is great for low budget trips.


Car Rental

Should you be visiting a more rural destination, such as Switzerland, Scotland, Iceland etc, then you might want a car so that you can explore more and get around a lot easier. Below you can find our recommended option to start your search.
