How to Plan a Europe Trip?

There are many famous destinations that you would have heard of in Europe. But if you are new to travelling, planning a trip to Europe can be quite a challenge for you. Take a look at a few tips that you must follow when planning your Europe trip:

1. Plan Your Trip Duration as Per Your Destination-

Going on a vacation to Europe depends on where you want to go and the number of days you can take off. Your trip duration should be sufficient to comfortably explore your travel destination. Mark dates on the calendar and try to plan your trip around long weekends and holidays. Make an itinerary and keep ample time to explore popular destinations like Paris, London, or Barcelona.

2. Make Your Budget-

 Every trip includes day-to-day costs like accommodation, food, sightseeing, public transportation, and a few miscellaneous expenses. The fact is that Europe is an expensive destination for Indians. So, you must create your budget according to the place you want to visit and keep them in mind while making your itinerary. 

3. Book Your Flights in Advance-

Make sure to book your flights at least 06 weeks before your trip. The earlier you book your tickets, the more affordable the flights are. Besides, a copy of your flight bookings is required to obtain the Schengen visa, which may take at least 02 to 08 weeks to be issued. You can keep an eye on flight tickets and turn on the alert for a price drop. Choose to opt for a round-trip flight as it is more affordable than a one-way flight. But if you are starting your trip from one destination and finishing at another, you can book your flights accordingly.

4. Research Well and Pre-Book Your Hotels-

If you are planning a Europe trip, you will have several options for accommodation. Airbnb is quite popular there because of its cleanliness and quality service experience. Also, backpacker hostels are preferred by solo and budget travellers as they are pocket-friendly. If you are travelling as a couple or a family, choose to stay in a hotel or consider renting an apartment. 

5. Pack Your Bag Efficiently-

Packing bags for your Europe trip depends on the time of year you are travelling and your destination. Always carry spacious backpacks with a lot of pockets and pack your bag light. 

6. Buy Travel Insurance-

Buy overseas travel insurance for your Europe trip that offers the kind of coverage you want. Besides, it is mandatory to buy travel insurance to obtain a Schengen visa. If you are a solo traveller or going with your family, buy an overseas travel insurance plan covering emergency medical expenses, accidents, flight delays, lost checked-in baggage, etc.

7. Make Copies of Your Important Documents-

Carry a hard copy as well as a soft copy of all your important travel documents, including your visa, overseas travel insurance and passport. Keep a digital copy of your flight tickets and hotel bookings. Do not forget to make a copy of your COVID-19 test results and vaccination certificate in an easily accessible place while travelling.

6 Destinations That You Must Consider Visiting in Europe

European countries are full of lively cities, which are known for their landscapes, libraries, museum, restaurants, cuisine, culture, nightlife, and architecture. Here are 6 top places that you can plan to visit on your next trip to Europe: 


Paris or the capital of France is popularly known as the fashion capital of the world. With famous museums, monuments, and churches, this place holds a special place in the heart of every travel enthusiast. You could spend your entire evening admiring sights like the Eiffel Tower, walking through exhibitions at the Louvre, and roaming around the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. Do not miss trying the fresh croissants selling at roadside cafes. You can also have a romantic French dinner along with fine wine along the banks of the Seine River.

Tips for Travelling to Paris: 

  • Beware of pickpockets while travelling on metros or roaming around tourist attractions.
  • Stick to public transport because it is the most affordable and convenient way to explore the city.
  • Easily interact with locals by using common French words like bonjours’il vous plaît, and merci.

Best time to visit Paris- June to August


The capital city of England, London, is one of the most popular cities in the world. Visit the world-class British Museum, spend a musical evening at the West End theatre, and take a tour of the Tower of London during your stay in the city. Do explore local pubs and try fish & Sunday Roast.

Tips for Travelling to London:

  • The high hotel prices can be a burden at times. Make sure to book your lodging in advance with a hotel/hostel or by reserving a vacation rental.
  • Buy the tickets to all the attractions in advance to save time and effort.
  • Always carry an umbrella because London is known for its erratic weather change.

Best time to visit London- April to September.


The fresh aroma of Italian food in the alleys and historical buildings at every corner is the glory of Rome, the capital city of Italy. A visit to Rome is incomplete without seeing the Roman Forum, St. Peter's Basilica, Colosseum, Sistine Chapel, and the majestic Trevi Fountain. 

Tips for Travelling to Rome:

  • Italy’s economy still runs on cash, so, always carry some cash with yourselves.
  • Buy bus tickets ahead of time because you cannot buy them on the bus while travelling.
  • Burglars in Rome are stealthy and so, always watch your bags.

Best time to visit Rome- Throughout the year.

Swiss Alps

The Swiss Alps, located in the south of Zurich in Switzerland, is heaven for winter sports enthusiasts. You can also explore ancient towns, tranquil lakes, and beautiful scenery during your stay. When in the Alps, do not miss eating some hot cheesy fondue.

Tips for Travelling to the Swiss Alps:

  • Keep yourself hydrated and take enough breaks when hiking at a high altitude.
  • Drink water straight from the tap and do not waste money in buying a water bottle because Switzerland has the world’s cleanest and best tap drinking water.
  • Buy travel insurance to stay covered against any medical emergency faced while visiting the Swiss Alps.

Best time to visit Swiss Alps- December to March 


Barcelona in Spain offers a different architecture from other European destinations. Places like Basilica de la Sagrada Família, Antoni Gaudí's Park Güell and Palau de la Música Catalana have impressive architecture. Besides touring all the famous architectural sites, you can relax on La Barceloneta beach or eat tasty regional tapas at the Boqueria Market.

Tips for Travelling to Barcelona:

  • Avoid standing in lines for buying tickets to famous architectural sites. Try booking a guided tour instead and save your time & effort.
  • Many museums in Barcelona have free visits for a particular day. Research well and accordingly plan your visit.
  • Beware of pickpockets in Barcelona. Do not carry a lot of money together. 

Best time to visit Barcelona- May to August

You can also plan a family picnic in Vondelpark to spend some quality time with your family. You can also go for a boat tour along the canals and relax after a tiring day.

Tips for Travelling to Amsterdam: 

  • Rent a bike and use the cycle lane to explore the city. 
  • Go for cruising at the canals, but do not walk alone at night.
  • Do not take photographs of the Red Light District of the city as it is prohibited.

Best time to visit Amsterdam- March to October


A lifetime would not be enough to visit all the beautiful places of Europe. But if you are going to visit any of the above-mentioned places, then make sure to follow the tips. However, do not try to travel to all destinations in a short frame of time as it will only lead to hassles. Also, carry your passport and other travel documents safely. But most importantly, do not miss buying overseas travel insurance for your Europe trip.
