Do you want to enjoy an unforgettable, relaxing and cosy seaside vacation but you’re afraid Money just might be an issue? Visit the Algarve on a low budget!
Portugal is one of the best Low Cost European destinations. British, German, Dutch, but also American and Brazilian travelers find it the perfect getaway. And that’s not surprising, keeping in mind the fact that the Portuguese seaside provides mild, warm weather almost throughout the year, beautiful beaches with the specific golden rocks that form streams near the seashore, an outstanding cultural legacy, with Roman, Moorish and European influences, exquisite cuisine and wonderful people.
And let’s admit it: money is often an issue. Not as cheap as Greece, Portugal is nevertheless a quite affordable option, especially for Europeans. But with the economic crisis and all the complications and expenses of everyday life, even those we consider well off must reduce their expenses.
So if you’re looking for a low cost trip to Algarve, here are a few tips:
Firstly, avoid booking your holiday in July or August. The weather is lovely, indeed, but the prices are high, not to mention all the resorts by the Atlantic Ocean are extremely crowded. Instead, book your vacation in the low season.
Be sure to book your plane tickets, lodgings and services in Portugal in advance. You can opt to book your transportation inside Portugal in advance, online. You will be surprised to see you can find very convenient transfers from Lisbon to Lagos and Lagos car hire services.
Last but not least, do a bit of planning and research. Go online and look for free tourist attractions you can visit. There are parks, architecture, picturesque old fishing villages and even museums to walk through for free.
Here’s the promise we can definitely make: the Algarve will not disappoint you!
