If you're heading off to Europe, Australia, the US (or anywhere for that matter) with a few friends this year, make sure you take advantage of the opportunities to save your bucks, euros and pounds for those nights you want to splurge on a fancy dinner or you fail to convince the bouncer to let you in for free to that hot new London underground club.
Here are just a few ways to save:
Before you hop on a shuttle bus from the airport, find out how much a taxi costs. Often, you will find that with 3 or more travelers, the taxi turns out cheaper or just the same but with more convenience.
If you choose to travel by rail, then a Saver Pass is just the ticket. It is shared by 2-5 people traveling together (at all times) and is available on a range of Eurail Passes. For example, a 1-month Eurail Global Pass normally costs $1,106 but for a group, the costs is $939, a savings of $167! That's a lot of money!
And, if you are traveling in a group of 10 or more, Pass Finder: Find the perfect pass Rail Europe offers even further discounts and special services, depending on your group size.
For groups of 10 or more, Bakpak has teamed up with hostelbookers.com to offer you group rates that will surely save you time and money.
