Five cost-effective tips for your trip to Denmark

Are you planning a trip to Denmark but feel like it might be a bit too expensive? Take a look at our tips below and see if you should reconsider – you’ll be amazed at how much you can save with our clever tips.

Don’t stay too long in the big cities

Of course, you don’t want to miss Copenhagen and many other larger cities, but these are often the most expensive places to eat, stay and entertain. If you go to smaller towns and more rural areas, you can reduce your costs tremendously, as the prices of accommodation – and even food – tend to be lower. Plus, you can experience all the wonderful natural beauty Denmark has to offer – and luckily, the view doesn’t cost anything! So try to divide your time between urban and natural attractions.

Find a cheap holiday home to rent

Staying in the same place for a long time can really reduce your costs – especially if you can find a holiday home Denmark at great prices . Staying in the same place for a week can significantly reduce the average cost of accommodation, and you can shop online for accommodation that fits your budget.

This may not work in a huge country, but Denmark is compact and easy to get to, so you don’t have to move to a different place every night. It’s better to stay in the same place and go to a different area every day. This also saves you time (and stress) when packing and unpacking!

Balance between eating out and eating at home

Another advantage of having a holiday home in Denmark is that you can find a place where you can do some of the catering yourself to keep costs down. Save the eating out for occasional pleasure and cook a few of your dinners at home.

Not only will this give you a chance to relax after a long day, but you’ll also be amazed at how much you can save in the process. Also pack sandwiches for lunch and always take a bottle of water with you when you go exploring – you can use the money you save for other leisure activities on holiday!

Check if you can travel by alternative means of transport (e.g. a bicycle)

Instead of opting for a rental car on holiday in Denmark, you should check whether you can use public transport to get to your destination and then alternative means of transport.

Denmark has an excellent network of bicycle paths and the bicycle is indeed one of the main means of transport for the locals.

Whether you’re in the city or in the countryside, you’ll see bikes everywhere (whatever the weather!) Also, Denmark is mostly fairly flat, with occasional hills – perfect for cycling. Cycling is a fantastic way to get up close and personal with a country – if you’re passing by by car, you can miss out on a lot. At the end of your holiday, you will be fitter and more relaxed – and you will also have more money in your pocket.

Plan ahead with a City Pass

Find out if you can get a city pass to save. In Copenhagen, there’s the Copenhagen Card, which gives you free entry to dozens of museums and attractions, as well as free access to public transport in Copenhagen. Also, you can get the card for free for children under 11 years old, which is certainly easy on your budget.

Choose a card that corresponds to the number of days you will spend in Copenhagen and enjoy the savings you will have this way. With the Copenhagen Card, you can even take a cruise on the canals of Copenhagen! You can also look for similar offers in Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg and Ribe.
