There’s nothing reasonable about NYC rent. On average, New Yorkers pay over $4,000 a month for a modest space, according to data pulled by RENT Café, an online apartment listing service. With the right salary and right apartment, you can get used to anything — but what would happen if you took one month’s rent and spent it on something else?

It turns out, quite a lot.

You can visit nine countries in 26 days with Costsaver’s European Heritage excursion, which takes travelers through Paris, Barcelona, Florence, and more, for — you guessed it — less than your NYC rent. The trip, which includes the essentials (25 nights’ accommodation, in-destination transport, and 32 meals) costs travelers $135 per day or $3,510.

The trip starts and ends in London and brings travelers as far south as Madrid, as far east as Vienna, and as far north as Amsterdam. An expert travel director ensures travelers don’t miss a beat, with trip highlights that include medieval castles along the Rhine river, the white cliffs of Dover, a glassblowing workshop in Venice, and glimpses of France’s iconic Provence region.

In addition, travelers with Costsaver enjoy audio headsets for sightseeing, travel by luxury air-conditioned coach, city orientation tours, and optional, add-on experiences.

The tour price does not include flights, but does include all in-trip transportation, hotel service charges and tips, baggage handling fees, and local taxes.
