Dos & Don’ts of European Travel: Europe Travel Tips

Hello prospective and returning ScholarTrip users looking for Europe travel tips. I (ScholarTrip blogpost extraordinaire) am a (recently former) college student. Having just returned from traveling around Europe, here’s what worked and didn’t work for me so that you might learn from my epic successes and unfortunate failures:

Do this:

Don’t do this: 

Don’t let yourself get scammed. Don’t let anyone on the street tie a bracelet on you, hand you a CD, or give you any little chachki. They will demand money afterwards. Don’t stop on the street to talk to anyone who seems too eager to talk to you, don’t let anyone walk in your blind spot too close to you – be rude if you have to. Most of all, don’t ignore a feeling that something is off whether you’re in a crowded plaza or walking alone at night. 

I hope those few do’s and don’ts prove helpful to any student travelers planning a trip. Talk to us @ScholarTrip on Twitter to share your own tips and experiences or argue mine if you feel so inclined. Finally, I say this not because I have to, but use ScholarTrip for booking flights. As a student, there’s simply no reason not to. From customer service to user experience to sheer value, ScholarTrip will make the air travel portion of your trip easy.
