Europe can be a very expensive place to visit, if one does not know some tricks how to get around without spending too much.

TikTok content creator Alida, on the other hand, gives some very good money-saving tips for those travelling to Europe, and in particular to Italy, from money exchanges, to flights and eating.

According to her, these are the top five ways travellers can save money while travelling throughout Europe:

  1. When withdrawing money from the ATM machine, always choose the local currency.
  2. Do not exchange cash at the airports!
  3. When making a hotel reservation, avoid the big international name chains, even when you want a luxury one. Instead choose hotels owned by locals as they are also luxurious, but cheaper than the international ones.
  4. Do not book an expensive direct flight, and instead use a European low carrier by making a stopover in other European countries.
  5. Do not eat at high-end restaurants that are located near tourist attractions. Instead go into the neighbourhoods, and eat where the locals eat.

Another TikToker gives some very interesting tips to those who are interested in visiting Iceland, which has often been dubbed as a fairytale and magical island by many.

Never walk on the moss that you see all over the country. It takes thousands of years for the moss to grow, and you could kill it in seconds by walking on it,” the video creator says.

She also advises travellers to not shower on their bathing suits in the hot springs and pools, but instead naked, as swimming with any clothing is prohibited.

And lastly, she reminds travellers that they do not need to buy bottled water anywhere in Iceland as the water at the rivers and waterfalls in the country is fresh and safe to drink.

Everyone says that you must visit Venice if you ever go to Italy. However, travel blogger Erin Fang advises travellers to skip the city of Venice and to go to Burano instead.

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but it’s time to skip Venice and go to Burano instead. There are honestly way less tourists on this island compared to the crazy crowds that you get in Venice,” Erin claims.

She further goes on to say that the best thing about Burano is that everything is much more authentic, in particular the food.

Jeans – they are seriously so heavy and take so much space in your bag. I think I wore them totally three times on the entire five-month backpacking trip,” she says.

Next in the list are:

  • make up, because you won’t be using it
  • clothes that have delicate fabric, like silk, that can get damaged very easy
  • a film camera because it’s too heavy
  • a hammock
  • white things
