Great option in Germany. There is very popular website Mitfahrgelegenheit.de, but you can use as well blablacar or carpooling. Car sharing gives ou option for travel for very little amount of money, you an travel for very long distances even for 20 euros and it’s very safe, cause you can check your driver references and find lots of different routes.
The cheapest option is Megabus where you can buy tickets starting from 1 euro! Try as well Meinfenbus and flixbus, that’s low cost buses with good standard and many routes in Germany.
Book your train early s you can save au to 50 % off your tickets. The most important tobe flexible couse sometimes you have to take off peak journey.
If you under 25 you can get and use Bahn card what gives you 25% off your ticket.
Travel in the group, during the weekend you can save huge amount of money.You can buy Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket for weekday travel or a Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket for weekend travel.Ticket validity is from 9 am to 3am next day. QdL ticket starts at €44 for one traveler, but less than double that for up to five people—a five-person group spends around €15 per person to ride the rails. The weekend ticket has better conditions for less money: The price starts at €40 for a single traveler, but five people pay just €12 euros each for travel from midnight of the day of travel until 3 am the following morning.
Try hostels. You can book room in the hostel starting from 30 euros or dorm starting from 12. Hostels in Germany have really good standards.
Food and Dinning
Try “Imbiss” they are cheap and good quality places to eat. Great choice of food for around (2-3 euro, 4-5 dollars) lie Bratwurst, Currywurst, pork sausages.
Try food from the vendorslike hot dogs or sausage vendors, it can e around -3 euros (4-5 dollars)
If you in the Berlin try Kebab, it’s the best outside of Istanbul in the world, purely beautiful. (3 euro, 4 – 5dollars)
If you wanna shop some food, avoid more expensive REWE or Real and try to find one of German famous discounts like Lidl, Netto or Amazingly cheap Aldi.
What I can say more than Beer. When I’m usually going to France I wanna try as much wine as possible, the same thing is with beers in Germany. Beers are very cheap, affordable and with great number of different kinds. Did you know that Germans drinks aproximately 120L of beers per year and their breweries produces 10% of of world’s beer.
