A trip to Europe can be not only interesting, but also useful if you combine it with shopping. Europe Outlets – an opportunity to buy items of popular brands with discounts up to 90%! Clothes, bags, shoes, accessories – all this is of excellent quality and at incredibly low prices. So why not give a couple of days to thoughtless and ennobling shopping?
When are sales in Europe
The best sales of Europe fall on Christmas, January, March and August – this is the best time for experienced shopaholics. However, sales in outlets lasts all year round, so you can come at any time of the year.
Also, keep in mind that almost all Outlets are located outside the city (usually 20-70 km from the city), and although there are shuttle bass from all major cities to outlet stations, there are often long lines for such buses. Therefore, it is better: either take a taxi or rent a car. The easiest way is to settle near the outlet, because even from the city by car it is difficult to leave because of traffic jams. For our readers, we have collected list of the best outlets in Europe, where you can buy quality products at the lowest prices, as well as the nearest cheap hotels, where to stay.

Main lifehacks for outlets
– Come better on weekdays. – In advance, you must make a plan for purchases. – Use additional services that you can easily find on the websites of outlets. – The biggest discounts are at the end of the season. – Make out tax-free!
If you do not want to spend on shopping a lot of time and effort, and not brand is more important for you, but the quality of things and low price – contact the shopping guides in inexpensive cities. You will not only be prompted by shops where inexpensive to buy quality items, but also help you find exactly what suits you. I can recommend a personal shopping guide in Amsterdam or Budapest – see the link for prices and details.

Budapest has an outlet
Outlet in Germany in Stuttgart is the best
I really liked Designer Outlet Salzburg. It is very close to the airport. A huge beautiful mall, a lot of quality clothes, suspiciously reasonable prices. We stopped by chance, next time we will go to study more and more thoroughly.
in Gdansk, the worst outlet, I do not advise to go.
Thank you for such useful information and for addresses of outlets in Europe. Going to Vienna. Now looked from June 22 to June 24 in Pandorf will be the Streetfood Market Festival of Ur. We rummage in outlets and eat deliciously at the festival.
