The challenge, of course, is finding ways to fund your adventure, and that might not be the insurmountable obstacle that you assume. There are a few ways that you can travel through the length and breadth of the European continent, and by choosing the right option that suits your financial situation, you could be packing your backpack by this time tomorrow. Check out the best three ways to get your summer adventure off on the right foot!
Learn to WWOOF
It used to be a bit of a trend, but the trend of Wwoofing has faded away ever so slightly, and you don’t hear so much about it anymore. It’s still there though, which means that you could not only explore Europe, you can do it with minimal cost, paid for accommodation, and the guarantee of food! If this is your first time hearing about World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, then it's worth checking out. Devised as a way to link up volunteers to those organic farms that need workers, you not only get to stay on accommodation in your country of choice, you also get to experience the culture. All while learning something too!
The security of a Loan
You could use a bank loan or even your student loan if you’re the high-risk type, but there are other, safer ways to arrange a loan that will fund your adventure in Europe. One option is to look at guarantor loans from UK Credit, which are safer than the dangers of using your student loan before the term even starts, or payday loans that can cripple you with high-interest rates. Easily managed and structured around your needs and your ability to make repayments, guarantor loans are a convenient way to secure the funding for your European break.
The romance of Interrail
There’s something almost traditional about the concept of interrailing through Europe. It’s romantic as well, and gives you the opportunity to sit back and relax as the European countryside just rolls on by. The train service in Europe is more reliable than you might assume, and with the right flexibility to your itinerary, the sights are there for you to enjoy as you see fit. From Bosnia to France and everywhere in between, nothing is stopping you from visiting every country in Europe! Interrailing can be as cheap as your budget allows, but you will have to account for accommodation costs.
No matter your budget, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a summer in Europe without breaking the bank or damaging your credit score in the future. Take the time to explore what you want to see and experience, and make some firm decisions on your itinerary (but always be open for unexpected adventures). Your European adventure could be a lot more achievable than you think, so it might be time to get that backpack out of storage and think about the memories that you’ll be able to dwell for the rest of your life.
