Summer is slowly drawing to a close. And that means it is time to book those last-minute getaways and feel rejuvenated as you welcome fall and all it brings. Who says you can’t head off to Europe and explore?
We have six summer trips to Europe – and reasons why you should travel there via a private jet. Come on, let’s go!
Safety with COVID
You may be wondering why we are even talking about traveling when COVID-19 is becoming even more prevalent than it was initially, thanks to the Delta variant. And, you’re right – COVID-19 is still here, and it is very real. But as a world, we aren’t still where we were back in early 2020. Despite there being many people who are not vaccinated, many are. And they want to travel.
There are considerable warnings; however, that should be heeded.
As of July 26, 2021, some countries were part of the U.S. State Department’s Do Not Travel list. These include Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, and Britain due to their increasing number of coronavirus cases. Yet, the British government announced they are welcoming Americans who are fully vaccinated. No matter where you travel during these times, you should check before leaving the country.
The best way you can stay safe but still get out there and enjoy a trip to Europe is to:
- Double-check all travel advisories before your trip. Take note of any requirements for proof of vaccination or negative test results. Also, check whether any quarantine period is going to be necessary.
- Continue to follow the CDC recommendations for minimizing risk, such as wearing a mask, washing your hands, etc.
- Consider flying private so that you can greatly reduce your exposure to germs from large crowds in security lines, airports in general, and on crowded flights.
It is safe to plan your trip to Europe as long as you follow the necessary precautions. And, if you choose a private jet to get you there.
Perks of Flying Private
There are many perks of flying private. There are, of course, luxurious accommodations, flexible schedules, and the ability to use FBOs and less busy airports. Then there is the fact that flying private gives you more accessible entertainment and the ability to stay connected on a long flight. And, did we say long flight? We did. That’s because flights to Europe can last a while — so why not be comfortable on a private jet while you travel?
Finally, back to the whole COVID-safety factor. Private jets keep you from being around massive amounts of strangers (and their germs) in several different ways. Plus, they are sanitized and ready for you when you get there – so you can feel safe and comfortable.
So, now that you know how to get there, you need to decide where you’re going. Here are 6 ideas for you.
Best Summer Trips to Europe for the Solo Travelers
Dubrovnik, Croatia. This country is a safe one for solo travelers with a lot to see and do. And, if you are a fan of Game of Thrones, well, there are many sights you may recognize throughout your journey here. While in Dubrovnik, be sure to walk the city walls of Old Town for some incredible views.
Glasgow, Scotland. If you are looking for a European city to explore with fun things to do while surrounded by great people – without sending you home broke, then this is it. Glasgow is an amiable city where the locals welcome you into their circles. You will find lots of pubs (it’s Scotland, after all), street vendors, artsy spaces, live music, eclectic shops, and so much more. Don’t miss out on the magnificent countryside, too.
Best Summer Trips to Europe for Adventure-Seekers
Brasov, Romania. If you are looking to get outside and enjoy the best of both summer and winter-type fun, then Brasov may be the place for your European getaway. You will find things to do like hiking, skydiving, and water parks. But you will also find snowboarding and skiing to be possible thanks to the Carpathian Mountains. On top of all the adventure, just strolling through the city, you will be in awe at the rich history, the architecture, and the markets.
Durmitor National Park, Montenegro. If you have been on a quest to find that one destination that would take your breath away, you may find it here in Durmitor National Park. And, since it is most popular among tourists in the winter, you will find it untouched in the summertime. You will find zip lining across a canyon, hiking, overnight adventures, mountain goats, and so much more. You will not be disappointed.
Best Summer Trips to Europe for Families
Amsterdam, Netherlands. If you are looking for someplace fun to take the whole family, you may not think that Amsterdam is the place, but it is. You will find so many things to do, from indulging your family in art museums and rich history to spending time at the beach. There is the zoo, delicious food, and so much more. It’s definitely a trip your whole family will remember for years to come.
Vienna, Austria. Vienna is a fantastic place for families. You will find good, wholesome surroundings and feel-good activities—things like bookstores, amusement park rides, and lots of music.
