traveling on the cheap best ideas..

outside the big cities mainly on this trip, beyond the picnicing in the park, or the rest areas along the route, and staying in the formula 1`s, does anyone have any good ideas on how they save a euro or two, especially when travelling with a family (two sons-23,12), we are travelling from Charleville area to Angouleme for a wedding than down south to Brignoles for a few days than back to the Ardennes for Bastille day before leaving for a last couple days in Brussels, any ideas appreciated, jn

Use a credit card from a credit union. Foreign Transaction fee can be as low as 1%. Most other cards charge 3%.

Get gas at the hypermarches (eg LeClerc, Carrefour). Hypermarche gas is usually a little cheaper.

Stay off the toll roads?
