Learn some words in French so you can handle your trip yourself
How beautiful is the diversity of the languages in the world. Every people is having own words that sound either like music (Italian or Spanish) or more serious (like German). But you need to pass through the process of learning if you want to understand one or another. French language is „chic” (cool) and you’ll definitely impress people you’ll meet in France if you know at least some essential words and expressions. Knowing the language is a must if you are traveling alone, as you’ll need to solve anything on your own.
Buy Your Train Tickets and Tourist Attractions tickets a few days before
Put this advice on your to-do list, as you may not find one ticket in the last moment or they may be more expensive than they should be. I have experienced this as I was traveling to France and needed to take a train ticket to get urgently from Paris to Nantes. And, oh, boy, that was extra 20 Euros as just one day before.
Choose less popular places to stay in or to eat
The key to not paying a lot of money for your trips is to be wise when it comes to choosing a cheaper but decent hotel or a restaurant you’d love to discover. As a reward, you can choose to go a luxurious restaurant just at the end of your holidays, but make sure you don’t leave all your money there.
