Make the European Summer Your Ideal Trip

September 20, 2018 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Whether you enjoy the planned, easy and carefree tour life, or live for the thrill of designing your own adventure, there are plenty of ways to experience Europe. This month, STA Travel is encouraging people to fully embrace their love of adventure and plan their ideal 2019 Summer Euro-trip.

A summer well spent in Europe does awesome things to your soul – you return to reality refreshed, with worldly experience, new knowledge and itchy feet!

Whether you want to eat your weight in gelato in Italy, sit on a pebble stone beach with clear blue water in Croatia, try different German beers or surf some serious waves in Portugal, there’s so much to do, and so many ways to do it.
To help your decision, here’s our breakdown of the best ways to get yourself around Europe.

CONTIKI – for the ones who needs structure Known for embracing the GO FOR IT attitude – we’ve all heard of Contiki. Their tours are completely organised, so you don’t need to worry about what’s next or how to get from destination A to destination B. Planned itineraries ensure you see all there is to a particular city, and the knowledge hubs that we call tour guides show you the ins and outs of the city – including some of Europe’s best kept secrets! You’ll also get pretty much VIP access to every major sight and destination, so don’t worry about the crowds and lines…you bypass it all! Contiki is a one-stop shop for travellers, but it also allows you to make lifelong friends with your tour mates. You’ll form lasting relationships and memories you’ll hold onto forever, with Europe as the ultimate backdrop to your friendship story.

BUSABOUT EUROPE – for the ones who enjoy flexibility Looking for a little more flexibility in your trip? Busabout is the perfect tour for you. If you’re the type of person who likes a little bit of spontaneity in your life, but also the security of a tour to fall back on, Busabout is the go-to travel tour. Shape your own adventure with the ability to stay for more or less time in a city that catches your eye (or doesn’t) and have the safety of jumping back on a Busabout tour when you’re ready! The network has stops all over Europe, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland AND Portugal…so there’s plenty of pit stops for you to visit and explore.

G ADVENTURES – for the small group adventurer If you’re the type of person who loves to travel in smaller groups, and prefer to make a few really great friends on a travel tour, G Adventures is for you! With smaller tour groups than their above counterparts at a maximum of 16 travellers, G Adventures is the PERFECT tour for solo travellers or small groups, so as to not overwhelm you with flocks of friends on their travels! Plus, the smaller groups make solo travellers feel safe and welcome! They cover countries across Europe such as Monaco, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Greece, Italy, Turkey, Switzerland, Iceland and Hungary, and visit urban and rural spaces, ancient and modern places of significance, and mix the ordinary with extraordinary.
