Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.
Karen Bryan started her UK based travel Web site, Europe a la Carte, in 2002 to cater for the growing numbers of people looking for something different to the traditional package holiday. Europe a la Carte highlights the benefits of visiting less well known destinations in Europe, in the belief that by venturing, even slightly, off the well worn tourist track you can experience a more authentic flavour of your destination and get better value for money. With the advent of low cost airlines, if you travel off peak, do a bit of research and choose a less popular destination, you can have a great trip on a low budget. The Europe a la Carte blog is now online for you to read and comment about travel in Europe.
