Examining the annual results since 2021, it's interesting to note Krakow's continued dominance as the best budget-friendly winter getaway destination in Europe over the last three years.
With the cheapest hotel and car rental prices, it's no wonder the Polish city remains an outstanding option for winter travelers on a budget. The city's most popular attraction is also free to access.
Prague saw the biggest improvement from 2022's findings, placing in second place - up three spots from last year when the Czech capital finished in fifth. On the other hand, Berlin dropped the most places in a single year, switching from 2nd to 7th - largely due to the expensive average costs of a week-long hotel stay (£1,266.53).
It was reassuring to discover that the cost of renting a vehicle has decreased dramatically, after peaking throughout 2022 due to global circumstances. In total, nine cities saw the average price of rental vehicles fall from 2022's figures with Prague seeing a decrease of £95.67 and Amsterdam's prices improving by £90.02 on average.
Out of the six cities that charge visitors to experience its biggest attraction, all six locations increased the cost of admission. Amsterdam increased its price the most with the cost of entering the Rijksmuseum going up by £8.84.
Furthermore, the number of cheap restaurants in each city has fluctuated over the past twelve months. While Brussels has seen the number increase by 51 eateries, the number of cheap restaurants in Paris dropped by a staggering 373 - nonetheless, the city still had the largest portion in the entire ranking.
Overall, we hope our latest annual report has educated you on the best budget-friendly locations for winter around Europe. It's safe to say that there is something for everyone this winter with so many unique options around the continent.
