I feel like Greece is very divers when it comes to budget. The more popular islands like Santorini or Mykonos are more expensive than the less popular islands like Rhodes or Athene on the main island. The important things if you want to have a budget holiday are to avoid the all inclusive hotels and book your flights and hotel separately. It’s also much cheaper if you go with a less-gorgeous view, so don’t choose the ocean view for example!


Turkey is such a nice country to visit and there’s so much to visit from Istanbul to Cappadocia. You can make this as inexpensive or as expensive as you want. This one is definitely perfect for this list of cheapest countries in Europe, especially the city Istanbul has cheap options for your dinner, nightlife and cultural excursions!

We all have a travel bucket list, right? These are 7 once in a lifetime travel journeys to have on this list!

Czech Republic

Budapest is a very nice city to explore but definitely look outside of Budapest too. This country is gorgeous so it would be a shame to just limit your trip to Budapest.

The picture above is Lviv in Ukraine and perhaps this picture already made you think about visiting Ukraine on your next trip. Ukraine might not be the first European country you think of. Please completely plan out your route in Ukraine before going, because there are a few places not safe for travelling. Others places are fine, but make sure to avoid the unsafe places. Nevertheless, it’s still a pretty and budget proof European country to visit.

Last but not least: Romania! The capitol city Bucharest is perfect for your trip and the outside villages like Bran are nice to visit too. This country also has a lot of castles to see and I definitely recommend doing a road trip through this country if you have the opportunity to do so.

These are the 10 cheapest countries in Europe to visit in the future. Absolutely perfect if you want a budget trip – as we all love to save some money while travelling! I love the diversity in these countries and the ones in Eastern Europe are close together. You can do these during a road trip but it’s also a great plan to take the train or any other form of public transportation.
