How to Save Money While Traveling in Germany

  • Written by

Determined to conquer the mysterious and beautiful Germany, you need to properly organize the trip. A well-chosen route, comfortable season, bus rent in Munich, knowledge of the language, and the main sights will help to get real pleasure from the trip.

Bus rental Munich 

Transportation costs within Germany can be reduced several times if you know a few nuances. The most budget-friendly option is bus rental in Munich. BCS Travel offers overnight trips that save time on overnight stays in hotels. However, it is necessary to choose the date carefully when you rent a bus in Munich because there are fewer vehicles available on weekends than on weekdays.

A public transportation pass is another way to save money. In many cities, you can buy a one- or two-day pass.

Cheap food

To save money, you should immediately exclude restaurants and cafes from the list. It is better to go to a supermarket like REWE, Aldi, Netto, or Lidl. There you can buy affordable food like rolls, sandwiches, cheese and meat cuts, salads, berries, and fruits.

Germany always has fresh and delicious products. Remember, however, that supermarkets are closed on Sundays. It is worth using the student canteens at universities. They offer a large selection of hot meals at an affordable price. As a rule, you can enter the territory of the university without documents.

Choice of the city by type of leisure

Someone under the rest understands going to museums and the study of sights, some - shopping and buying souvenirs, and others - street food festivals and nightclubs.

Given their preferences, choices, and cities for the route to Germany. For a visit to trendy coffee shops, you should contact coach rental in Munich and Berlin. To enjoy the romantic beauty of cities, you should go to Dresden and Bremen. Before making an itinerary, you should think in advance about the plan of action in the chosen city.


If a vacation in tents is not provided, it is worth thinking about finding comfortable accommodation. Germany has a well-developed system of hostels, but given the huge competition, finding accommodation in a big city will not be easy.

Those who want to visit non-touristy places should use the budget service Airbnb or free Couchsurfing. They provide an opportunity for warm communication with the locals and sharing accommodation with Germans. Often friendly couchsurfers can give tourists a free tour of the city and its surroundings. And this is another opportunity to save money on your vacation.

Finding travel companions

In order to save money on travel in Germany, it is worth finding a coach hire in Munich, or using a unique service BlaBlaCar. On the site, you should enter the name of the city from where and where you want to go, and then choose a hitchhiker. This project is mainly attended by young people.

Free museums

Berlin is considered the cheapest German city in this regard. You can book a free tour in English and German at the Reichstag. Most of the capital's museums offer free admission for tourists. Another free and interesting museum was the concentration camp Sachsenhausen, located outside of Berlin. Visitors to the city and local residents may attend free events in the form of concerts and theater performances. 


Now you know all about how to travel around Germany on a budget, enjoying every moment of your trip.
