  1. By nature, travel is cheaper when you have someone to share costs with. This factor often is what causes me to build my itinerary a particular way. If I know one friend can come with me from Brussels to Stockholm, I’ll try to find someone else to meet me within a few days of that for a while. Find travel companion for hire
