Touring on a budget can be really tricky and thought provoking. But, if you are smart enough and want to save up, you can buy yourself a really memorable trip. Especially, if you are interested in historical tours and battlefield destinations for 1st and 2nd World Wars, you can really plan something informative yet constrained inside a budget.

In order to select the western front tour on a budget, one needs to keep these tips in mind:

1. Always go for the cheapest accommodation

It is advisable to stay at a 2 or 3 star hotel, as you just have to stay the night and sleep. The battlefield sites are mostly isolated and farfetched; you need to search for a suitable accommodation that lies on the route that you want to take in order to reach a certain burial or cemetery.

2. Stay central

You need to get a map of the place first, in order to conclude where to stay. Staying central will allow you to cut down on the cost of traveling to a certain battlefield and help you stay in your budget. You can travel via high speed trains to a certain station, from where you have to rent a car, which automatically charges you more. Getting to the nearest station from the site will help you cut down the cost of rent a car.

3. Eat smart

Packing up food to eat while on the go will help you cut down the cost of eating at a restaurant.

4. Visiting more than 2 sites in a day

It is extremely imperative to have a map of the battlefields, since it will allow you to select 2, 3 different sites which lie closer to one another, helping you save up on the time as well as the cost of traveling back and forth.
