You want to take full advantage of your experience in Europe? StudyinFrance introduces you to three websites dedicated to travel and last-minute deals.

Our first favorite is TravelPirates, a team of German origin – now international – that travels the web daily to gather the best offers for hotels, flights and week-end gateways. The only downside is that you have to be responsive enough to take advantage of them.

For the more sporty, we highly recommend UCPA, which has been organizing sports holidays for over 50 years! Surfing, diving, Yoga, horseback riding or trekking; there is something for everyone. Service is great and prices are fair.

Finally, Lastminute offers you a wide range of trips (from camping to all-inclusive cruises) at an affordable price. The agency is quite successful in negotiating prices with its partners, but navigation on the website could be improved: there are so many offers that it’s easy to get lost.

Would you love to travel in France and Europe?

Here is our advice for transportation (car sharing, trains, coaches or flights).

Car sharing

Car sharing is one of the most widely used means of transport in France. We introduce you to Blablacar, the European leader, so you can travel wherever you want!

Trains & coaches

Use SNCF discount cards for your train trips (up to -60%). Book your tickets with Trainline, the European leader in train and coach travel (200 partner companies).
