West, south-west and central European countries, hold a great connecting network of transportation, with multiple daily itineraries from different providers, making it possible and easy for any resident, to plan a joyful trip making several stops around and getting a more broaden cultural perspective.

However, despite our enthusiasm and desire to travel we do not always have the time and mental capacity to correspond to the (high) demanding travelling preparation, as we do not all have the same amount of experience and organisational skills.

1.  With a little help from your friends

First things first, when starting to plan precisely for your upcoming Euro trip, you will probably need tips and recommendations from previous travellers, either friends of yours or foreigners, by starting or searching for a relative discussion thread online. Having someone else to tell you what they suggest trying and what to avoid, is time saving, reduces anxiety and could also end to being lifesaving in some occasions.
 In this way you will have enough information to make your travel outline and deciding which places you will finally visit and which is the cheapest way to do so.

2.  Safety comes first

Very often, especially when we have unlocked some high-end travel skills, we tend to forget to considerate of some back-up plans and safety nets, in case of unfortunate turning of events. Therefore, do so! Also, check if you are eligible for the European Health Insurance Card, or in general take care beforehand of your health insurance entitlements abroad.

Also, be careful with your personal stuff, to not forget anything anywhere, but most important to not be the next victim of a nimble thief!

3.  Hire a professional

As already mentioned, a travelling plan, especially when coming to a tour with multiple destinations, may require a lot of time to be dedicated in order to have the result of the desired quality. The absence of this time can create negative feelings that affect our overall sensation about the upcoming trip. Sometimes, all you have to do is to relax and look for a Europe bus tour operator. It’s not obligatory to have always, everything under control.  It’s ok to ask for the help needed, and let a professional organizer do all the dirty work for you, letting yourself enjoy the travel experience at its maximum!

4.  Ticket spare

In order of not having further things to deal with in case of an emergency (losing your phone, no battery atm, etc.) always have a hardcopy of your tickets printed, additionally to the digital version.  Same rule also applies for any kind of bookings and reservations.

5.  Flexibility and Open-Mildness

The last but not the least important ingredient for a pleasant Europe-tour, is your own mood! Remember to maintain your positivity and a friendly vibe, that will allow you to socialize with any other traveller embracing diversity, and exchange travel experiences and cultural information!
