Here are the 5 underrated countries in Europe you should definitely consider over the ones that are already famous, crowded and expensive.


Malta is a small country that neighbors Italy and Greece and shares the natural and architectural beauty of both its neighbors at a lower price tag with far lesser crowd. It is easy to communicate with locals in this archipelago nation in the Mediterranean because English is the second official language. Malta is one of the five smallest countries in Europe and portrays the influence of the entire European continent.

Things to do there:

  • Explore beautiful antique churches
  • Get down to the rugged coast for a scuba dive in the turquoise seas
  • Visit a Scoglitti restaurant to relish Sicilian-style seafood

Costs: 7 night, 8 days package costs approx. Rs. 55,000


The second on the list also starts with the letter ‘M.’ The name Montenegro literally means ‘Black Mountain’ in Italian. However, this country nestled along the Adriatic coast is well-known for its stunning, sun-drenched beaches that cover nearly 200 miles of coastline. Montenegro is an affordable alternative and much less crowded than the beaches of Croatia.

Things to do there:

  • Hike or sail the humbling trails of Durmitor National Park
  • Stay in a coastal medieval village
  • Enjoy a sumptuous seafood meal
  • Unwind at the nightclubs in Kotor
  • Savour castle-top cocktails

Costs: Montenegro is quite an expensive holiday destination. A typical holiday package to Becici for 3 nights and 4 days costs Rs. 2.5 lakh for a couple.

You can finance your next family holiday to any of these hidden treasures in Europe with a Bajaj Finserv travel loan available on Finserv MARKETS. Enjoy faster processing with minimum documents and repay in easy EMIs over a period of 12-60 months.
