Traveling to France can get a little expensive so instead of eating out, why not blend in with the locals and have a picnic. There is nothing more French than buying some delicious bread, cheese, fruits and meat while enjoying the weather on some luscious green grass outside the Eiffel tower. It’s a good idea to buy these at the outdoor markets, as you will get the best local ingredients to put together the perfect French meal. Train travel in France is cheap and it’s the easiest way to get around. If you are under 26, there are vast discounts available for you if you have the ISIC (International Student Identity Card) card so be sure to get one. Besides getting the ISIC card, it’s advisable to get a comprehensive travel protection plan so that you can enjoy everything that France has to offer and save some Euros.
