travel advice & savings


Explore Sicily and Malta On Line (Video + Stills)

My recent film “Don Corleone’s Island” presents highlights of Sicily (Italy) and Malta, starring a “Godfather” movie shrine, the Mt Etna volcano, Greek Temple of Concord, fantastic Roman mosaics, a Norman mountain top castle, vivid Byzantine mosaics in a Catholic cathedral; then Malta’s landscape of 16th Century walls and forts, the scenic former Arab fortress of Mdina, and a tour of Malta’s Grand Harbor.

Short-term Storage for Luggage

My friends and I are studying abroad next spring and are hoping to travel around Europe before we settle in to our respective countries. We’ll fly over to Europe with all of our luggage for the whole semester. But we obviously don’t want to be carrying our stuff around for the whole trip. Do you know of any places where we could rent some cheap, safe storage space or lockers for a week or so? Does this thing even exist?

I would love some good advice for traveling Europe

I have posted a ruff plan of a Eurotrip my friend and I would like to do. We leaving from Melbourne, Australia at the beginning of December and returning towards the end of January. We are planning on being in Berlin for NYE and hopefully spending christmas in London. We are also considering stopping over in Thailand for a few days on the way back to Melbourne. Because we want to be in Berlin for new years i am having a little difficulty planning in all the cities we want to visit over the the time we have…

Eurail vs. Rail Europe

I was wondering which one is faster & more efficiant.
I’m planning of flying to London, staying there for maybe 4 days & buying a seperate ticket from London to Paris. Around how much would this ticket cost and what company should I go with?

Money and Planning

Hey everyone

I’m not sure if this should go in packing, but none of the other categories seemed appropriate. Anyways, I’m just planning for my trip, but I’m really not sure what I should consider when making my budget. I’ve already got my transport and living figured out. Is there any other huge expenses I should consider?

Another thing: I’m traveling through mostly heavily populated western cities (amsterdam, paris, london, etc.) and a few eastern cities (Krakow, Prague). So taking that into account, How much should I expect to be paying per day?

What kind of train ticket?

Hey there,

So I am planning to travel to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Krakow, Prague, Venice, and Madrid next spring.

I am just wondering what kind of train ticket I would need to get. I’m a little confused as to what I would need to buy.

Travel between 7 cities around europe in 15 days.. Transportation is like a spider web!

Alright, These are my destinations really that we wanted to visit: Lyon -> Barcelona -> Florence -> Milan -> Venice -> Prague -> Amsterdam.
I posted the trip on eurotrip planner of the website on this link:

I can manage the accommodation but what I am really confused is how can I transport between these cities to the other, shall I get the global pass?.

Eurail Question

For my trip I plan to utilize the “5 countries” pass for Eurail. I’ll be using Eurostar to go from London to Paris and then begin using Eurail to travel the Benelux out of Paris. When it gives me the option to select my first country, is that the first country I plan on going to (Benelux) or the first country I leave from (France [Paris])?

Also a second question: to travel from Vienna to Rome is it more economical to travel by air or train?

Thank you.

Need help!

Hi, everybpdy, it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here.
So if you don’t know my story I’ll tell it again: my friends and I plan to go to Europe in a few years and want to get a head start on planning it. We plan to utilize the “Youth” discount for Eurail *and plan on staying in *hostels every night on this trip.

We added three new cities to this trip, and I’ll denote them as “NEW” in the following itinerary.

Old Town Prague
District in Prague, Czech Republic
