I am planning to go for a tour around Europe for one month. Must visit countries: UK-Germany-Austria-Hungary-Italy-Switzerland-France. I read a lot about feed that encourage people to go for Eurail or any Global Pass trains.
Is there any other option for a tight-budget backpacker to save on this trip?
Is there any cheap local bus that I can hop on and off between cities?
I am not good in planning ahead and I always prefer to travel on a sudden situation.
Will €800 be enough?
I don't mind sleeping or CouchSurfing or even hitchhiking.
Is it safe to hitchhike in Europe?
