1.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect to see any of the maps 10 Sep 2012
By Vivian

If you are a Roughguide by country frequent user, this is not enough details at all. However if you are on a budget, this saves you on buying too many books.
Forget the kindle version. All maps are bad quality scans so zooming on your device does not work. The text is a useful pointer for more information (it tells you which city map / free travel magazine is best), but you have to find your way to information point to get maps of the city.

I'd read a backpackers guide to Europe from Rough guides before and it was brilliant! It gave you lots of tips, ideas and thoughts about a trip to Europe on a budget. Unfortunately I didn't write down the edition and was hoping that this book would be similar. I think the title is wrong, as it mainly only tells you about the countries, not how to travel them on a budget.

I love rough guide books, but if you're after information about travelling there on a budget, I suggest buying one of their other books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good generally but many issues 18 Oct 2013
By Mike
Format:Kindle Edition
Having purchased a physical copy of this book for a big trip to Europe, I proceeded to buy a digital, more portable, copy for the actual travelling part.
The general information, orientation and history of the places is helpful. That's pretty much where the helpfulness ends.
The maps are utterly useless on the Kindle. They're too small to be read by human eyes, then if you expand them, the poor quality images are totally pixelated to the point of being unreadable.
A few restaurants listed in the book don't exist anymore and perhaps most importantly, almost all of the prices of things are out of date. From museums, to hotels, to public transport, the information is all out of date. Unforgivable for a travel guide, especially one focused on the budget-conscious traveller.
We also felt pretty silly when we went to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin armed with the information from my "handy guide book" that the last 4 hours of all the state museums are free on Thursdays. We were told on arrival politely, but firmly, that this hasn't been the practice since 2010 and bought a full-price ticket.
If the publishing information is correct, that this edition was published in 2012, then either something is wrong with the Kindle edition or the authors/publishers are guilty of laziness in updating and sloppiness in reporting.
Although the general information is good, this edition is thoroughly flawed and out of date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide 20 Dec 2013
Bought for a freind and she was thrilled as it had so much information about not only accommodation and food, but transport maps and free sights to see.
