Travel Europe

Europe is one of the most exciting places to travel, and undoubtedly the culture center of the world. Dozens of countries, filled with the richest history, art, food, natural wonders and buzzing cities... all only a train or bus ride away from each other. This summer, get lost amidst world-famous monuments, down quaint alleyways, or in picturesque Spanish beach towns. Dive into the Mediterranean's crystal waters, or soar high in the Alps. Tick dream destinations like Paris off your list... or blaze new trails into eastern Europe's vibrant cities and offbeat bars. No matter what kind of European adventure is most suited to you, we've got it covered.

When is the best time of year to travel to Europe?

Europe's weather can vary from country to country depending on the season. Between the months of November and March, parts of north and central Europe can be very cold, whilst the Mediterranean countries remain mild.

The months around Christmas are a magical time to visit Central and Eastern Europe, with traditional Christmas markets and New Years Eve celebrations taking over.

Visit Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Spain in the spring summer months to make the most of the beautiful beaches and perfect weather... altough you're likely to find warm weather and sunshine in most parts of the continent between May and September.

Prices tend to be highest in Europe at Christmas, Easter and during the summer vacation. Travel during off peak times to save yourself money on accommodation and trips.

Do I need a visa to travel Europe?

As a U.S. resident, you'll be granted a tourist visa upon arrival in all European countries, so there is no need to apply for one in advance. In most countries, these visas can last you up to 90 days within any 180 day period, but in the United Kingdom, you can stay for up to six months.
