When is the best time to travel to Europe?

When is it NOT the best time to travel to Europe? No matter when you plan on visiting Europe, we’re sure you’ll love it!

Summer in Europe (between June to August) doesn’t need an introduction. Long sunny days, good gelato, breathtaking beach views - it’s Europe in all its glory. But for a springy touch, visit Europe during March and April - when flowers & fields are in full bloom and the temperature is still cool.

Winter in Europe is amazing too. Who wouldn’t love skiing down the Austrian Alps? Not to mention, fewer crowds and cheaper stays. And for chilly nights and vibrant shades of orange and red - visit Europe during October.

What are the best destinations to visit in Europe?

You really aren’t gonna ask us to choose, are you? This depends entirely on what you wanna see. But some of the must-do destinations in Europe would be Paris, Venice, Amsterdam, London, Prague, Rome, Ibiza and all the Alps! And guess what? We’ve got plenty of trips visiting all of these destinations for you to check out. 

Do I need a visa to travel to Europe?

Your visa requirements can change according to your citizenship (and also according to the length and purpose of your visit). We always recommend that you check out our visa guide for more information.

What should I pack for a Europe trip?

Your passport, of course! But some other essentials would be:

• Comfortable shoes: There’s gonna be a lot of walking around
Light jacket: It tends to get quite windy
Crossbody bags: To carry all your stuff when you’re licking away that gelato 

And the rest would depend on which season you’re arriving in Europe. Get loose, breathable clothes for summer, or thick jackets and multiple layers for winter. 

Can I book online?

You certainly can! All of our trips are available to book online, just select your preferred travel date(s) and away you go. You can also book over the phone if you'd prefer.

How many days should I spend in Europe?

All your days. Just kidding (or are we?). This entirely depends on what you wanna do. We’ve got big trips, small trips, and everything in between. So if you’re looking for some inspo on how many days you should spend in Europe, check out our trips.

Is the tap water safe to drink in Europe?

Yep. You’ll be fine drinking tap water in most of Europe. But it’s always a good idea to double check with your Trip Manager if you’re doubtful.

What is ATM access like in Europe?

You won’t have to worry about getting enough cash when you’re in Europe. Because ATMs in Europe are accessible as gelatos in Rome. Just stay wary of those sneaky ATM fees…

Is tipping customary in Europe?

Generally, tipping isn’t mandatory in Europe. And a lot of the time, service charges are included in the bill. But if you really like the food (which you will, you’re in Europe, after all) or service, leaving 5-10% is always appreciated.
