Europe on a Dime: Five-Star Travel on a One-Star Budget by Dru Pearson

UPDATED in 2017! Fly for free and sleep for cheap. Spend less than you thought possible for five-star travel on a one-star budget. Pearson shows you how.

Travel guru Arthur Frommer calls Dru Pearson's writing "delightful," and he believes her blog essays,"...provide a strong confirmation of the advice I offered in a recent post...."

Arthur Frommer and Dru Pearson seem to think alike. Both know that apartment rentals are vacation money-savers for everyone.

Dru also thinks that Baby Boomers, especially, crave five-star luxury on a one-star budget. The hostels they frequented in their 20s won't do any more. They want en suite bathrooms, not a shower room down the hall, and a suitcase on wheels, not a pack on their backs.

Yet, in these difficult economic times, there is not a single book that tells this largest demographic in American history exactly how to travel Europe in a systematic way designed to maximize enjoyment while minimizing cost.

Until now.

Dru Pearson's book for the over-45 crowd--although travelers of any age can save money using her advice--teaches a step-by-step approach to comfortable, independent travel for under $98 a day. Unlike other guidebooks about Europe, there are no itinerary, accommodation, or restaurant suggestions. What Dru supplies, instead, is far more valuable. She shows you exactly how to plan a trip using public transportation, rental apartments, and food markets. Using her approach, a couple can travel independently in any country for under, and sometimes well under depending on the country, $98 a day per person.

If you thought the only alternative to backpacking Europe was an expensive organized tour, think again.

In Europe on a Dime you will find out how to how to fly to Europe for free, rent your own spacious apartment for less than the price of a private hostel room, pay half-price for train tickets, and buy the most delectable meals for a fraction of a restaurant's price.

So, don't worry if your backpack is getting moldy in the attic. You won't need it any more. You won't have to settle for an expensive organized tour that charges $200-800 a day either. All you will need is this book which will teach you everything you need to know so you can travel frugally and comfortably anywhere in Europe.

About the Author

I'm a former English teacher who's always suffered from wanderlust. Living four years in Mexico helped, but the wanderlust is incurable and, seemingly, insatiable. I want 365 days of travel a year. Writing about my experiences is my medicine.
