    All those from Europe...

    And I know theres a fair few of you
    Im in need of travel help

    So a few friends and I are planning to travel to europe mid september next year. It has to be this time because one of them needs to apply for Drama colleges. We are on a tight budget, as currently we have practically nothing saved. Well, I have about 700, one of the others may have a couple of thousand, and the other two have nothing. (yes, there'll be some serious saving between now and then! ) So our main problem is money. We worked out that if we organise the trip ourselves, it will cost upwards of 10-15 thousand (this is all in AUS $). And if we do a tour type thing such as Contiki, it will be about 6000-8000 or so for the whole trip. First we plan on staying in London for a week (we were thinking generator hostel) then either going on a tour or whatever we had organised.

    We were looking at a 14 day contiki trip or a 20 day trip. Are there any other tours that are pretty cheap but still good? We don't really mind where we stay as long as its not camping, and its clean obviously.

    Originally if we were to plan this trip ourselves we included scotland and ireland, but are thinking about cutting it out now to save on costs, but are still unsure. How expensive is it? Is it really worth cutting it out? Is it really worth actually going? I don't know much about these places except theres nice castles and I can cope with not seeing these for now.

    Anyway, to give you an idea, we were thinking of going to Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, Venice etc, and obviously London. Give or take a few depending on money.

    So does anyone have any advice, know of any good tours, or just anything I should know?
    Thanks :)

    You can travel around mainland Europe by train, there are passes that you can get that let you "roam" - get on and off the trains where you want, you can get to Britain via the Euro Tunnel and travel through England, Scotland and Wales by train, you'd need to get a ferry or fly to Ireland.

    You'll need Euros for most of Europe, Britain (Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland) uses British Pounds .

    How expensive it'll be depends entirely on what you do and where you go - sightseeing is free!
