Many Canadians head to a warm or even tropical location in the winter. Getting away from the cold and snow can help break up our dreary winters; however, there are advantages to forgoing an exotic winter vacation and heading to Europe. You won’t have to fight the usual summer crowds to visit popular landmarks and attractions, and hotel prices will likely be lower.
Remember, though, that just like in Canada, winter days are considerably shorter in Europe. This means you’ll have fewer daylight hours to explore, which can also affect the operating hours of tourist attractions. Before booking a European winter vacation, make sure to research the destinations you want to visit and ensure they’re open. The good news is that many year-round tourist attractions have lower, off-season prices.
When preparing for a European winter vacation, it’s important to pack patience. There’s a good possibility you could be delayed or have to make last-minute travel adjustments because of weather. If you expect to encounter travel delays, it can help alleviate the frustration when it occurs. It also helps if you know you’re covered with travel insurance. With coverage from Hudson’s Bay Financial Services and SecuriGlobe, you can be reimbursed for a missed or cancelled flight due to inclement weather and can have access to immediate funds to replace lost luggage.
Having the security of travel insurance will help you enjoy your European winter vacation, even if the weather is unpredictable.
