There is no doubt that Coronavirus has had a major impact on travel this year. Borders have been closed, travel bans have been enforced, and when individuals have had the opportunity to fly, some of them have just felt too uncomfortable. However, it is important for us all to look to the future. There are certainly glimmers of hope for travel next year, and a country in Europe would make for a great first choice destination.
Europe has always been a popular destination with Brits. The beautiful countries of France, Italy and Spain draw many tourists in every year, thanks to their breath-taking beauty, warm climates and range of activities.
Another good reason to choose Europe for your 2021 travels is that not far from the UK, so should any Coronavirus warnings or restrictions come into play, it will be a lot easier to get back home within a short timeframe.
According to a recent ‘Future of Travel’ survey carried out by travel company Jules Verne, almost half of the people that took part stated that they are most wanting to visit Europe at some point over the next 18 months. So, if you’re someone that has been eyeing up an Italy escorted tour, next year could be the year to do it. After a quiet 2020, there will no doubt be offers and discounts to take advantage of overseas, and friendly locals will be sure to welcome travellers back with open arms.
The benefits of travel
After such a stressful year, it’s fair to say that we all deserve a bit of rest and relaxation. And what better way to do that than on a magnificent break away? Going on holiday is a great way to de-stress, recharge and reset the mind. If you live in particularly busy city with a hectic job, travelling can help you to disconnect from your usual daily routine.
Exploring different destinations can also help you to improve your understanding of other cultures, and it provides you with the opportunity to learn more about how the locals live their lives.
Travelling also makes you more interesting! When you catch up with friends or family after a holiday, or even get chatting to those you don’t know as well, you will be able to share your fascinating stories from abroad. People will love to hear tales of your adventures.
Europe not only boasts beaches and open spaces, but it’s also so popular for its good weather. This means that there will be plenty of space to spread out from other travellers to stay safe while enjoying a holiday. As 35% of respondents are already planning or researching their next trip for 2021, it looks like England’s love affair with Europe is set to resume very shortly.
Consider getting a holiday in the diary soon and give yourself something to look forward to.
