Diamond Resorts International® -- Vacations for Life® -- Offers Vacationers Top Tips When Travelling to Europe

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 23, 2016) -  Industry experts are anticipating a surge in travel to Europe in 2016. The continued break in airfare combined with a strong dollar relative to the euro makes European tourism an appealing option for American vacationers, with Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands and Estonia ranking as the top destinations among travelers according to new survey results. To help holidaymakers elevate their European vacation into a magical and memorable experience, world-renowned resort company Diamond Resorts International is offering essential tips for enjoying the continent of culture.

When crossing the Atlantic, most travelers are excited about experiencing a new culture, but may also be a little unsure of what to expect. To avoid travel anxiety and fully enjoy the journey, the experts at Diamond Resorts International® suggest choosing a destination based on personal preferences. Some vacationers may prefer a quiet resort town by the seaside, while others might be interested in exploring the vibrant culture, cuisine and arts of a busy urban center like Paris or Salzburg. Choosing the right location to suit each person can make all the difference. The time of year also plays a major role in making the most ideal travel plans. The Mediterranean is lovely in spring and early summer, although the region often becomes busy at the height of summer when many Europeans are vacationing in the south of France, Greece, and Italy. June-August are the best times of year to enjoy northern European countries like Ireland, Britain and Denmark.

'Vacationing in any of Europe's alluring destinations is truly about immersing oneself in the local environment,' comments a Diamond Resorts International® European spokeswoman. There is an abundance of history, art and culture to appreciate. The secret to creating the perfect trip is to establish an itinerary, but remain flexible. A vacation is meant to de-stress and renew, and this is a fundamental belief of the popular resort company. While there is no way to visit every castle, museum and festival on one trip, choosing a handful of must-sees and allowing for plenty of time for relaxation is the best way to fully enjoy and experience Europe. Save the other attractions for the next great European vacation.
