Sure, there’s accommodation to be found next door to the airport, but let’s face it, they’re hardly the most cost-effective solution to airport layovers, and you’d much rather save your money to spend on better things once you’re abroad.

By opting to stay outside the airport area and transferring in via train, you’ll not only save money, but enjoy a number of other benefits too Continue reading
