With spring breaks starting to begin, it probably seems like everyone you know is heading to the beach. And that’s because it’s true. More than 53% of spring breakers are planning a trip somewhere warm, with the top three destinations all being located in Mexico. But want to do something a little different? Head to Europe!

That’s right. Head in the opposite direction as everyone else and enjoy your time exploring both history and new cuisines. These three under the radar European destinations are perfect for your upcoming break and we’ve got a trick on how to save major money too.

Normandy, France

Just a 2 hour train ride north of Paris and you can be on the coast of the English Channel enjoying Atlantic seafood in small, charming villages that are full of stories.

Copenhagen, Denmark

This capital city filled with cozy restaurants, funky bars and futuristic art makes for a memorable and picture perfect trip.

Piedmont Region, Italy

Take in the breathtaking views of the Alps while enjoying a traditional meal paired with rich red wine after spending the day exploring.

Now remember when I mentioned earlier that you could save some serious cash while traveling to one of these places? Let me introduce you to HomeExchange, the world’s #1 home swapping community. This travel option allows you to spend less on accommodations and more on activities, while not sacrificing an authentic and cozy stay.

So how does it work? In just four easy steps, you’ll be on your way to planning your next budget-friendly trip.

Step 1: Sign up, complete your profile and choose your membership plan.

Step 2: Use the filters to find your dream vacation home.

Step 3: Contact the host to discuss the type of exchange. You can either each exchange homes for the period of time or you can use your points for hosting to travel somewhere else, instead of staying at their place.

Step 4: Finalize the details and enjoy a memorable vacation!

Trust us, you’ll definitely want to look into this before your next adventure!
