Craving a city break but don’t want to break the bank? Tops Tips

Are you craving a city break but don’t want to break the bank? Or do you have an idea of where you want to go, but unsure of a daily budget?

Well, there’s good news - travel experts, Alpharooms Ireland, have analysed the most popular destinations in Europe, before calculating how long a day budget of €50 will last.

Taking into account the average cost of food, transport, attractions and even alcohol in each city – their findings have uncovered the most purse-friendly cities to visit this year: 

Stand out stats:

  • If you’re planning a staycation in Dublin – think again. A day budget of €50 will run out at 3:00 pm.

  • Surprisingly, €50 will go further in Rome than the popular, Benidorm.

  • Prague is almost three times cheaper than London (which has been labelled as the most expensive destination).

  • Antalya not only tops the list as the cheapest, but it was also the 5th most popular European destination last year, making it a cheap and cultural hub.

 How Long Will a €50-day Budget Last Across Europe?

Alpharooms Ireland have analysed the average cost of a breakfast, lunch dinner, beer, cocktail, two one-way transport tickets, and three attractions to calculate the following:

  • In London, your €50 will run out at 12:30 pm.

  • In Rome, Dublin and Vienna, your €50 will run out at 3:00 pm.

  • In Paris, Benidorm and Amsterdam, your €50 will run out at 6:00 pm.

  • In Istanbul, Prague and Antalya, your €50 will last all day, and you’ll still have money left over.

Alternatively, for those who aren’t as restricted by a budget, Alpharooms Ireland have also used the same spending factors to uncover how much the average day will set you back in each tourist hotspot.
