If you’re looking for a European holiday destination but are strapped for cash, choose one where the Euro won’t dominate the affordability of a country. Increasingly, the more traditional European destinations who are affected by poor Euro exchange rates are being swapped for lesser-known countries. In these countries, you’ll get more for your money under their local currency so accommodation, local travel, food and tours tend to be cheaper than their other European neighbours who have the Euro.
