If you are going to travel to Germany, you have most probably heard that means of traveling there are pretty expensive. Most of people prefer to take trains and trains charge quite a lot.
But the readers of the Venere Travel Blog are not just some regular travelers because they have the knowledge provided here. Pick up some valuable tips!
Fly cheap to Germany
Sometimes airlines cause us to feel real astonishment or even shock. They can offer such prices for tickets that you would think of no better means of traveling. I recommend you checking such website as Skyscanner for cheap flights in Germany. Here is the list of our favorite special airlines: RyanAir, AirBerlin, Lufthansa, and EasyJet. RyanAir is the crowned queen of these companies, if offers budget airfare and besides it is easy to build connecting flights with other cheap airlines. You should be really lucky to get a cheap ticket with AirBerlin and Lufthansa, but miracles do happen. Sometimes you cannot find a cheap ticket from an airline that lands in the city you are heading to, but do not get upset! There is always a way out: you should use the craziest possibilities to connect your flights and get a cheap connection.
Train travel in Germany
Besides, you can always use the services of Die Deutsche Bahn and travel Germany cross-country by train. Die Deutsche Bahn offers their Europe-Specials, but they are not that cheap. If you are not familiar yet with a wonderful weekend ticket, we would like to introduce you to it. As train tickets in Germany are pretty expensive, this one offers a fantastic possibility to travel for only €7. This ticket costs 35 EUR and can be used by up to five people. The only problem is that only regional trains can be taken. You can also use the services of TGV-Europe or Interconnex and book the same trains as with Die Bahn but cheaper. And here we have one more wonderful tip for you: night train tickets are much more cheaper! But you have to be aware of that because when you book your ticket on the website, they do not always offer this tickets.
Hit the road!
If flying and traveling by train is not an option for you, I have more good news. You can use such means of traveling as Mitfahrzentrale or Mitfahrgelegenheit. These are the websites where you can find people driving along the roads of Germany (and not only Germany!) by their car and looking for fellow-travelers who are going the same direction and can share the petrol money with them. Drivers have their profiles on these websites, so you can check some information about them as well as their pictures and arrange a journey. Besides, good old hitchhiking is always there for you if you consider it safe enough. But do not forget that during the winter time which is coming close and closer it can get really cold (-10-15 C°) in Germany.
