Europe is somewhat of a contradictory place when it comes to the adventurous traveler. On one hand, it’s one of the most culturally significant and beautiful continents in the world. On the other hand, some of the biggest hotspots are also among the most expensive places in the world. Luckily, not all European countries will break the bank. So if you’re traveling on a budget, here are three countries in Europe that are on the cheaper side.


For many years, Portugal has been lauded by travelers as one of the most economical choices. Compared to its neighbor, Spain, it’s much less expensive, and you’ll still get a wonderful experience. You’ll taste delicious cuisines, observe beautiful sceneries, and enjoy it all on a budget!


Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is one of the greatest deals you can find when it comes to getting bank for your buck. It’s not as expensive as Switzerland or Sweden, and yet it offers all kinds of amazing things to do, such as thermal baths, historic sites, and amazing nightlife too.


Finally, Greece is an another amazing budget friendly option—but with a slight caveat. Certain areas in Greece are definitely on a pricier side, but islands such as Rhodes or Crete are amazing options if you’re both trying to save money and have a great travel experience.
