There are many beautiful countries to choose from when planning a trip to Europe. The Eastern European states are now up and running as more mainstream tourist destinations whilst Italian, Austrian and French ski and beach resorts remain as popular as ever. Spain and Greece, despite their economic problems, continue to offer cheap beach and clubbing holidays.
But if you want a city break you can travel to many cities in France, Italy, Belgium or Holland for very little money with iDBUS. If you only have a long weekend available then you will probably want to spend your time in just one city, making the most of the sights and exploring all of the museums, shops and restaurants in that city. But if you have longer to spare then make a two-stop city break instead.
For example, take the iDBUS from London to Paris to start your break. You can travel to Paris Bercy in the centre of Paris, or Paris Charles de Gaulle if you wanted, say, to start your visit to Paris with a stop at Disneyland (there is a local bus service clearly signposted at Charles de Gaulle airport that will take you directly to the Disneyland Parc and hotels). The journey from London to Paris takes around nine hours, so be prepared with snacks, drinks and entertainment for the ride. But the price of the ticket more than makes up for the length of the journey: you can travel from just £35 Mini Price.
Once you have explored Paris to your heart’s content, book an iDBUS from Paris Bercy to Amsterdam to continue your city break experience. This journey takes just under six hours for 39 Euros and is a great way to see the passing countryside in France, Belgium and Holland. Enjoy the walks and boat rides amongst the canals, people watch from pavement cafés and pass some time enjoying the wealth of artistic talents of current and historic artists who have been inspired over the centuries by this beautiful country.
Once you have finished your trip take the iDBUS back from Amsterdam to Paris Bercy and then on to London. Making your journey this way offers an inexpensive travel option ideal if you are on a budget or simply want to make your money stretch as far as possible: the less you spend on your travel, the more you have to spend when you arrive!
What’s more, all of these journeys (London to Paris, Paris to Amsterdam, Amsterdam to Paris and Paris to London) are available as overnight journeys. If you travel overnight then you can sleep on board and arrive refreshed in the morning ready to start the next stage of your holiday. What’s more, you won’t need to pay for overnight accommodation in hotels for the nights on which you travel, so your coach ticket doubles as your ‘accommodation’ costs for those nights, making it an economical way to make the most of your break.
