European Travelers Seeking Fewer Countries, Creative Destinations

As some U.S. travelers eagerly plan their European vacation this year or next, tour operators and DMCs are seeing interesting changes in the scope and approach to European travel bookings.…

…The perks of booking a one-country tour are clear-cut: Once travelers are granted entry to a country, they won’t think about getting tested again or filling out required paperwork for the “next” country on the trip just one or two days later.

“We see people who are going to just relax and catch their breath…and relax in a particular destination,” Dale notes.

In another good example, Collette has an appealing,11-night “Switzerland: Hidden Trails and Majestic Peaks” itinerary with many 2021 departures from August through late October. Guests will visit Zermatt in the shadow of the Swiss Alps’ Matterhorn and exploring Vevey within the “Swiss Riviera.” Pricing is from $4,249 per person, double occupancy.
