Bus and coach travel to Europe is an often overlooked option, which actually is a very affordable way for a European Traveller to get over to Europe and see a few sights. There are many pre-arranged coach tours as well as using the bus service as a public transport option. Doesn’t quite have the same appeal as perhaps taking a train until you see the savings of course, especially if you are on a budget.
