TOP SUMMER EUROPEAN DESTINATIONS: AMERICAN TRAVEL ACROSS THE POND WILL SKYROCKET 600% OVER LAST SUMMER
According to Allianz, “more Americans are forgoing the traditional summer road trip and instead packing their bags and passports for a European holiday this year. According to Allianz Partners’ Top 10 Summer European Destinations review, travel to Europe will soar a staggering 600% over last year as countries re-open for visitation from the U.S.
The travel insurance and assistance company analyzed more than 40,000 flight itineraries* for trips of five to eight days in length between Memorial Day and Labor Day to determine that London retains the lion’s share of all planned trips with 22% of bookings, likely spurred by the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities marking the British monarch’s 70 years of service. Paris (#2) and Dublin (#3) also remain atop Europe’s most sought-after vacation spots for 2022 summer travel.
Other top destinations include Reykjavik holding steady at #4, while Lisbon jumps into the #7 position, returning to the list for the first time since 2019. Rome and Edinburgh moved up to #5 and #6 respectively after Athens fell three spots from 2021 to #8 this year. Barcelona (#9) and Amsterdam (#10) round out the roster, each slipping one position from last year’s rankings.
“The pandemic made people realize you can’t take travel for granted and many Americans are eager to visit Europe this summer,” said Daniel Durazo, director of external communications at Allianz Partners USA. “European destinations have made a significant effort to welcome Americans back and our data shows tremendous pent-up demand for travel to the continent.”
