A husband and wife team that loves living and traveling in Europe. They created The Savvy Backpacker to help future travelers plan their budget backpacking trip to Europe. This site differs from most other travel sites because they mainly focus on all the nitty-gritty details of planning and preparing for a trip. The Savvy Backpacker is mainly written by James, but Susan also helps with a lot of the research and ideas.

So you're tinkering with the idea of backpacking through Europe? Great! But the big question that's on everyone's mind is "how much will it cost?"

City price guides for budget travel
"How much does it cost to go backpacking through Europe?" That's the question everyone wants to know. This is why we created our City Price Guide Series. Each guide outlines how much you can expect to spend during an average day while traveling on a backpacker's budget. The daily cost consists of a night in a hostel, three meals, a snack/adult beverage, an attraction, and daily public transportation.

How to eat and drink on a budget while traveling in Europe
Food and alcohol are two things that can quickly wreak havoc on your travel budget if you're not careful. But that doesn't mean you should live off ramen noodles and hobo beer while you travel. In fact, in many cultures, the food and alcohol is just as important as the art, language, and traditions, so it would be a shame to totally avoid it. Luckily, there are plenty of options for the cash-strapped backpacker to eat well on a budget, and we've outlined these strategies in this guide.
