Europe is the main destination of European travellers this summer. 60% of the holiday nights booked from the 1st of June to the 31st of August 2014 will be in Europe, reports nSight.

THE US ATTRACTS €OPEAN TRAVELLERS

The US will welcome 38% of European travellers this summer. New York is the number 1 destination for Europeans, with 25% of European travellers going to New York this summer. Only in Eastern Europe, New York is the third most popular destination booked after Rome and Paris - the US city however ranks first across other European regions. US destinations are particularly popular among Northern European travellers: four US cities are within the top 10 destinations booked from Northern Europe. Aside from US cities, Vancouver is the destination most booked outside of Europe, followed by Dubai.

PARIS IS THE FIRST €OPEAN DESTINATION

Among European destinations, Paris is the top destination booked, with 15% of Europeans booking a trip to the city between 1st of June and 30th of August. Although London is the top searched European destination, the city ranks only second in terms of bookings. Spain is popular across Southern Europe, as six Spanish cities are among the top 10 destinations searched. Nevertheless, only Madrid and Barcelona are among the 10 destinations most booked by Southern Europeans.

STAYS LESS THAN 4 NIGHTS

Although the average stay varies from region to region, 76% of holidays booked account for less than four nights. The longest stay is planned by Northern Europeans in Orlando with an average of 8.1 nights booked. Eastern Europeans have planned the second longest stay, with 5.8 nights booked on average in Paris.
