3.  Don’t go cashless- The ATM’s of Europe is known as “Bankomat”. Find one and make sure to fill your purse with some notes. Europe still prefers cash more than credit or debit payments.

4.  Pre-plan the things to do and places to visit- Make your schedule of where do you want to visit and what are the things you would like to do before starting your journey. It is always wiser to know what to do than being confused where to go and what to find. Europe has some of the biggest nations filled with some extraordinary monarchies and landmarks. Visit Paris, Italy, Germany, Prague and all the beautiful places filled with different cultures and colors.

5.  Arrive in London- Although you can start your journey from anywhere you like, arriving in London first is always the best option. Being the industrial hub of Europe, London will teach you everything you need to start your Europe tour, as you can find people from all over Europe (and the world). Also, you can easily travel to your next destination from London without any hassle.

6.  Closed in the afternoon!- Please ensure that you know the time of opening and closing time of ticket counters or places where you want to visit. Especially during the lunchtime(12 to 2 PM). Or else you need to just stay there until the reopening time.Decide yourself!

7.  Claim your VAT Tax refund- In case you have made some large purchases make sure you take the receipt and ask for a Vat tax refund form from the cashier or store manager. You can get 20-25% cash back on purchases up to 175 euros in France, Germany, UK and a few other nations. Search for more information regarding VAT Tax refund to enjoy some free money!
