Travelcard: your travel buddy

Usually, in Europe one currency works and there is the huge difference between the Indian and European currency. It cost 75 rupees for 1 euro. So keep the eye on the currency rates, so whenever the currency rate is low just take the forex card if you don’t want to carry much of hard cash. But don’t add much of euros to your forex card as while returning from the trip you need to sell your euros which are sold at less rate. Always use online banking for reloading the forex card.

Local transportation

Use local transportation as it is the best and more prevalent way of travel in European countries to make the travel pass for travelling economically locally. It is valid for 24, 48 and 72 hours depending on which card are your buying.

Travel Light

Always carry less of the luggage when you plan the Europe trip because too much of luggage makes you tired and exhausted and is difficult to manage the things all together. Security of various things become hassle and time-consuming also makes you frustrated at times.

So always feel light at your baggage part. Make a list of the places of visit and then according to that keep the item which makes your luggage light and compressed.

Use technology

When technology has made life easy, so use it to keep it pocket-friendly even, My point is towards making international calls. Always use the wifi hubs whenever points of connecting the people come, it is cheap and pocket-friendly.

Always keep these all point in mind when you plan Europe trip.

It was always in my heart to do international travel, and believe some others even have too, so just by this note extending my hand to all the travellers to make their travel easy, safe and economic.
