Museum entrance fees can get expensive depending on the location, with some museums charging more than £20 for admission. If you’re a lover of art, look for cities that offer museums you can access for free, such as pretty much every museum in London.
City passes can give you major discounts if you plan on hitting a lot of major tourist attractions. The Paris Museum Pass gives travelers access to some 60 popular museums and monuments in the city, while Berlin’s WelcomeCard offers discounts on popular sights like the TV Tower and DDR Museum.
When to tip?
Countries also vary widely in their tipping practices. Tipping is not a part of daily life in countries like China, while in France, tips are typically already included in your restaurant bill. Before you travel, determine whether or not it’s customary to tip and, if so, how much.
Michelin-starred restaurants are often touted as some of the best in the world, meaning they can also come with a hefty price tag. That being said, you can easily enjoy a meal at these establishments for far less than you would expect. Some Michelin-starred restaurants, offer a miniature — and affordable — tasting menu with smaller selections. Stopping by at lunchtime can also help you save, with restaurants like The Ox in Belfast serving a two course lunch for £20.
