Currency : Euro For backpackers, France can be considered an expensive country compared to other backpacker destinations such as South East Asia or South America. However there are ways to travel in France cheaply such as using couchsurfing.com to find sofas to sleep on or blablacar.com a car sharing website which can be cheaper than train travel. I have also met hitchhikers too which is another possibility to save money! Prices are higher in Paris and in some areas of the Mediterranean coast. A main meal at a restaurant will typically be between 8-15 Euros depending on the restaurant.
