Camping in Europe
Traveling in Western Europe is usually an expensive pleasure. It doesn’t matter if you live in a European country and want to explore neighboring countries, or if you came from the other side of the world and want to taste the wonders that Europe can offer you, your expenses can exceed all expectations!
Do not deny yourself the pleasure of tasting wine from Tuscany, visiting the Jungfrau mountain peak in Switzerland, treat yourself to Saint-Tropez or have fun at Euro Disney. How to get the most out of vacation without harming the budget?
The biggest expense during the holidays is the payment of housing. You can significantly reduce costs by staying on vacation in campsites scattered throughout Europe (known as tourist camps).
Such holiday camps are often small villages with 2 and 3 bedroom houses, fully equipped beds, bathrooms and kitchens. Some of them even have terraces, so you can relax in the fresh air. At the campsites, various parking lots and bases are at your disposal, depending on whether you came with a trailer, trailer or tent.
Near many campsites are small markets and eateries, as well as kiosks and even restaurants. The services and activities offered vary depending on where the campsite is located, but as a rule, there are always swimming pools, tennis courts, games and football grounds and games rooms at your disposal.
You will be amazed at how inexpensive this type of vacation is. As a rough guide: here you will have to pay 50 euros per day, compared with a minimum of 150 euros per night for a four-bed room in a two or three star hotel. Such savings over a long stay at the campsite will give you the opportunity to spend money on what is really worth spending in Europe.
