Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, but it can be costly and leave a severe dent in your holiday funds if you are not mindful of your spending. One of the biggest outlays is, of course, dining out. Something which is unavoidable if you are spending your day in the city and trying like all visitors to see as much as you can of the beautiful French capital. But you can save some money, especially if you avoid eating out in expensive areas where there is almost a tourist tariff on every morsel you put in your mouth.
Instead, you can find good, authentic French restaurants where excellent dishes can be had at a reasonable price. You will also save on the cheaper fixed-price menus that offer good fare without perhaps the extensive choice of 'a la carte'.
Mueseums, galleries, tourist venues, bus and river tours, and transport can all rack up the cost during your stay. But there are specials and economical options, and you should be on the look out for these and the best balance you can get between enjoyment and cost.
Hotels again can be another bogey. If possible, don't go too downmarket for the lowest budget hotel you can find - you will certainly end up with a budget experience. Also try and get an hotel relatively close to where the focus of your vacation will be. If it is Paris city centre, then don't book an hotel in the far reaches of the suburbs. You will end up paying for the decision in extra travel costs and travel time. But if your focus is Disneyand Resort, then staying there in any of the hotels near Disneyland Paris or in Val d'Europe is fine. In fact, it is ideal.
So still on the theme of saving money, here are the latest updates for hotel promotions in Paris. Hopefully, this may save you even a little during your stay.
