What will a revenge travel 2022 look like? Where will people want to go? It is in fact Europe, this summer, that is leading the way.
Allianz Partners created a ‘Top 10 Summer European Destinations’ review, analyzing more than 40,000 flight itineraries. They found that American travel to Europe will be up 600% compared to last summer.
Two European travel destinations that have surged in popularity, according to Allianz’s list, are Rome and Lisbon. This reflects the increased interest and bookings of our Best of Italy and Amazing Spain & Portugal tours, which show you the very best of these European jewels.
Not only where, but what? The hospitality company Evolve ran a survey to determine what travelers are eager to do this summer 2022. According to their data, ‘consumers are most interested in exploring the outdoors – including hiking, biking, and kayaking – and wellness/relaxation experiences in the coming year.’ On top of this, ‘secluded mountain/rural escapes and waterfront getaways are by far the most popular 2022 vacation experiences’.
Two popular Insight trips that exemplify these trends are the Country Roads of Switzerland and the Best of Ireland & Scotland tours. Both offer abundant natural splendor, with tranquil lakes, rolling hills, and humbling valleys. Those looking for the peace and serenity of nature’s vast open spaces, after years of confined inertia, will find these tours incredibly liberating.
