Allianz analyzed flight itineraries for trips of five to eight days in length between Memorial Day and Labor Day. It found that the number one destination, London, England, will welcome 25% of this year’s bookings, with Paris, France (#2) and Dublin, Ireland (#3) rounding out the top three most popular vacation spots across the pond.
Rome inched up a spot to #4 and Milan moved into the Top 10 with its first appearance since the survey began in 2015. That knocked off Barcelona, Spain for the first time in the survey’s history. Other notable moves for 2023 included Amsterdam, Netherlands, jumping two positions year over year to #8 while Athens, Greece, climbed up one spot to #7.
“Last year, we saw a major increase in American travel to Europe and this summer indicates even higher demand, so it’s more important than ever to plan for a busy summer travel season,” said Daniel Durazo, director of external communications at Allianz Partners USA.
The new statistics follow last year’s 600% increase in American travel to Europe from 2021 to 2022, making it clear that revisiting European favorites and new bucket list destinations after years of restrictions will remain a priority when mapping out memorable summer travel plans.
