/ Cheap fun abroad?
Try the Austrian German border. Over 3000m and quieter than much of the Alps. Also, an easy drive on excellent autobahns which are free - go through Belgium/Northern France and into Deutschland as soon as possible. I also hear the far Eastern end of the Alps - e.g. ex communist - is cheaper than most, but haven't been. If you want to hut to hut then join the Austrian Alpine Club for insurance and hut discounts.
Oh well in that case forget it, unless you're prepared to bivvy on a glacier.
Although, considering their location you could consider the huts cheap - especially with AAC(OeAV) membership or a BMC hut card. The cost of accommodation equates with a posh campsite, its just the food that could knock you flat.
