FOUR WAYS TO FREE/LOW COST TRAVEL AROUND GREECE...AND NOT ONLY!
By Liana Metal
- Free lodging!
Find a pen friend. Maybe you haven't thought of this. It's the best solution to your
budget problems, but you can't have it overnight! Greek people are hospitable and so are other countries people if you become
friends with. It's the simplest thing to do if you like writing letters or just exchanging cards and souvenirs. I've done
it and a lot of other people have, why not you? Your friend will probably be happy to put you up for a couple of nights and
show you around as well. The other alternative is to exchange your house/flat with somebody else's
abroad. There is a site online that will help you find a place . Try www.welcometraveller.org , they advertise exchange homes free of charge. Try also www.bigworld.com for offers and discounts.
- Low cost travel
Stay at campsites. The cheapest alternative to free lodging, at least in Greece.
You save money and have fun . Find a campsite at
- Invest on a bike.
If you like cycling, then you can do it. In Greece you can cycle to most places
and see areas that are worth visiting. You can easily rent a bike , and if you are in Corfu you can try Paipetis
shop in the center of the town,at Saroko square.
- Rent a room in a village or at the port
There are families who rent rooms in their own house ; cheaper than hotel
rooms but you have to follow the rules. Where can you find them?
Watch the port area if you come by ship. There are people who approach you
and tell you about their own rooms around the area, at low prices. Sometimes you can even bargain to get a better price.
Well, if all these don't suit you and you may own a caravan , you don't have
to worry about lodgings. You can stay at campsites at low cost, at the side of the road or even in a field for free. You can
also hire a caravan and share the expenses, if you travel with friends.
