Cheap Accommodation in Estonia

The best value accommodation options are youth hostels, bed and breakfasts, low star hotels and, of course, camping and caravan sites.

Cheap Food & Drink

For the best deals, keep out of the main tourist areas and follow the locals. Lunchtime is a good time to ask for the dish of the day in the many cafés that office workers use - a main course costs around 3€.

Supermarkets have hot food sections and can foil-wrap it to keep it warm.

Most Estonian cafés and restaurants are extremely good value for money. A typical restaurant or pub meal will cost 5-10€ and so its worth eating out at that price.

Pubs often have happy hours or drinks promotions.

Budget Travel

Buses and coaches are very cheap – the train too.

Train tickets you can buy on board but with the buses its cheaper to buy a book of ten tickets in advance (if you plan that many journeys).

If you are fit enough then Estonia is small enough to cycle around or even canoe!

Affordable Entertainment

Check the events section and ask locals if there are any free events happening –there is always something going on.

Even paid events and entertainment is affordable in European terms except when big international stars like Madonna or Brazil Football Team come.

In Tallinn, many cost-conscious tourists choose the Tallinn Card, which gives free and discount access to nearly 100 attractions and destinations.

Someone once said, “The best things in life are free” and in Estonia it is sort of true too. You can for free wander through our National Parks along deserted beaches and forest paths discovering Estonia’s wonderful wildlife, see tiny rustic villages and ancient monuments and it does not cost a penny.

There is so much to see and do in Estonia and a lot of it is really great value or free.
