Bounce from romantic Paris to trendy Lisbon all under $500.

When you think “cheap European trip” your mind likely goes to crowded hostels filled with gap-year students, cheap beer, and later-than-you-might-like partying. The alternative tends to be expensive hotels with prices that make you so uncomfortable, you might as well stay home. 

Our friends at Travelzoo, though, are making that cheap European getaway possible—and you don’t have to resort to teen-packed stays or poorly-located accommodations.

For the first stop on your European tour, you’ll be heading to none other than Paris, France. Explore the City of Light with a 70% off stay at Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg just outside the famous Luxembourg Gardens. For $265, you and one guest will get a two-night stay in one of the charming hotel’s deluxe rooms, with each added night being an additional $119—so feel free to add on a third or fourth.

Your stay will include daily breakfast for you and your guest as well as a complimentary bottle of wine to be sipped as you look out over either boulevard Saint-Michel or the hotel’s private garden. Each room offers a unique view of the city, allowing you to fully envelope yourself in your Parisian fantasy.

This hotel is a kitty-corner from the previously mentioned Luxemburg Gardens and a 15-minute walk to both the Seine and the Pantheon. If trying to navigate the city’s metro system intimidates you, this centrally located hotel gives you the chance to easily explore Paris on foot.

Heritage Avenida Liberdade Hotel is in the heart of the city. Within walking distance from your hotel are Baixo, the city’s historic center; Bairro Alto, which features cobblestone streets and century old-homes at day and trendy bars and restaurants at night; and Chiado Square, which has luxury shopping, theaters, and museums. TLDR; you’re a stone’s throw from the city’s most popular museums, shopping, eating, and nightlife.

Both of these stays are redeemable through spring of 2022, giving you the time to sort out the logistics after impulse buying (because these are sure to sell out) and both offer full refunds, a nice little safety net in case the European vacation doesn’t work out. But with the European vacation practically already planned and budgeted for you, the only thing you need to do is pick the dates.

As a heads up, although Fodor’s fully endorses this deal, we receive a small commission on this transaction.
