Skip the pricey rental car and use local trains and buses instead; they serve most cities and towns, including many smaller ones. (If you'll be hopping a lot from place to place, consider a rail pass.) Hostels often offer private rooms at inexpensive rates; B&B's can also be quite affordable in comparison to hotels. Self-catering cottages, campgrounds and homestays can also help you trim your accommodation costs. Pubs offer cheaper eats than restaurants. You can also create your own picnic lunch by stocking up on food at grocery stores.
