What To Know About Cheap Holidays In France

By Nick Thompson

The sublime landscape, stunning landmarks, and heavenly cuisine make many want to plan cheap holidays in France. The first and best pointer is to restrict a Paris excursion to a limited time only as it is undeniably the most expensive place to go. Plan on going to some other enchanting French towns to economize without giving up a fabulous vacation.

As an alternative to pricey hotels, camping is quite popular with the locals. Campgrounds in France are rated on a scale just like hotels and many have better amenities than hotels with the same rating. There are a variety of budget accommodations available. As a rule they tend to be smaller lodges, B and Bs and hostels. Great for connoisseurs, Smaller inns are often serve delicious home cooked meals. Other places to stay can be as unique as rural farmhouses that also cater to foodies where often farm and garden fresh cuisine is prepared.

The most expensive way to travel is by train, car or taxi. Cheaper alternatives are available, however. To travel across country a rail pass is a less expensive alternative. There are also a couple of discount airlines available. Sometimes, airfare on one of these low cost carriers to an outlying city is cheaper than going by train or car.

Eating can be inexpensive if planned ahead of time. Staying away from the tourist areas can save a lot of money and reveal the real culture. French bakeries are great places to get inexpensive goodies like bread and croissants. Stopping in at the local market and picnicking in are park is an authentic and reasonable way to experience the real France. There are many fabulous and low cost ethnic restaurants that also provide haute cuisine on a budget. Many restaurants in tourist areas provide set price meals for a discounted price.

Spending a few days in Paris can be done inexpensively if planned carefully. With some of the most wonderful hotels and restaurants in the world, as well as some of the finest art galleries, there are few cities that can offer as much culture and class as Paris. Tickets into monuments and museums in Paris can be expensive, although there is usually one day each week when entry is free or almost free.

France is a country of countless splendors often thought to be out of reach for the budget traveler. With a little planning, however, a trip to France is more likely to be a more genuine and rewarding vacation than most people get who go first class. Planning cheap holidays in France are a great way to see the country.
