Hospitality tech companies RateGain and Eviivo joined up to determine Europe’s top summer travel trends. European vacations are in high demand, and most are sticking to well-known destinations rather than venturing off the beaten path.
The study reports that around 80 percent of Americans are traveling to Europe for this year’s summer vacation, booking trips to major bucket list cities and planning to spend at least seven days.
Based on inbound international flight booking data for June-Aug’23, Portugal tops the charts as the most booked European country, with its capital – Lisbon – being the number one city for leisure travel this summer. Porto, the second-largest city in Portugal, also made the top ten.
