When searching for flights to any destination, we suggest using Google flights because they display the most routes at the best prices. Another great option is the website Momondo, which we highly recommend as an alternative.
Since some of the flights sometimes charge an extra fee for checked baggage, we suggest packing smart. For instance, pre-select and organize your outfits according to the days you'll be traveling.
Be open-minded when it comes to travel within the European countries and consider the high-speed trains if you want to avoid the crowds at the airports. But, also look into economy airlines like easyJet if you're seeking an economical option to hop around different European countries and of course remember that they charge for everything.
For your return to the United States, download the mobile passport app to avoid long lines and breeze through customs at the airport. Be mindful that not all airports have implemented this type of service.
We hope that these tips are a welcome nugget of information. Overall, our goal is to inspire you all to travel more, especially to Europe where there is so much to see and do. Soon, we'll share more specific travel related posts to the countries that we have traveled to in the past.
