Europe holidays

There’s no place like Europe for the holidays. Europe is a continent that is rich in history, culture, and natural beauty, making it an ideal holiday destination. From the stunning architecture of Paris to the picturesque canals of Venice, Europe has something to offer for everyone. The continent is home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum, and the Big Ben. Europe is also known for its delicious cuisine, with each country having its own unique dishes and flavors.

Some of the top European destinations to visit include Barcelona in Spain, which is famous for its stunning architecture and vibrant nightlife, Amsterdam in the Netherlands, which is known for its beautiful canals and museums, and Santorini in Greece, which is famous for its stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches. Other popular destinations include Rome in Italy, Paris in France, and Vienna in Austria. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or an adventure-filled trip, Europe is the perfect destination to explore.

With its world-famous cities, castles and cathedrals, a glistening Mediterranean coastline and lost-in-time medieval villages that entice over 480 million visitors to tour Europe every year? You’d never run out of new things to see and spectacular adventures to embark upon.

Travel to Europe

Europe holiday packages offer you a bit of everything. Cosmopolitan cities with endless cultural pursuits, from peering at paintings by the great masters to dining on culinary treasures.  

Perhaps it’s the thrill of exploring the continent’s vast expanses of untouched wilderness, from laid back ski trips through the Italian Alps to dog sledding with huskies through the frozen forests and lakes of Lapland. Experience the pure joy of a Christmas market in Germany, or bask in the warm sun on a beach in Italy. No matter your reason for visiting Europe, you are guaranteed to be swept off your feet by its romance.   

With so many countries and cultures jam-packed into one area, you can spend a week in Europe and experience something wildly different every day. Whether you're a couple looking for a culture fix, a family on the hunt for adventure, or a lone wolf looking for like-minded thrill-seekers — we have a variety of Europe travel package options to make all your dream European holidays a reality. 

  • Eiffel Tower: Get a bird's-eye view of Paris from France’s most iconic attraction.  
  • Colosseum: This gladiatorial arena is the most thrilling of Rome's ancient sights. 
  • Notre Dame Cathedral: An 800-year-old Gothic Cathedral, Notre Dame is Paris’s most visited site. 
  • Musée du Louvre: Showcasing thousands of art pieces, this is the world's largest museum. 
  • St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City, Rome: This Renaissance church is Italy’s largest and most lavish basilica.  
  • Palace of Versailles: Versailles is the French jewel in Europe's crown of culture and style.  
  • Stonehenge: Walk in the footsteps of your ancestors at these prehistoric megaliths. 
  • Trevi Fountain: Toss a coin in the fountain to ensure your return to the Eternal City. 
  • Gain access to multiple attractions for one affordable price by investing in museum and city multi-access passes. 
  • It’s always a good idea to take some basic medicines along with you on your European tour, as falling ill can be expensive. 
  • Pack a change of clothes in your hand luggage when travelling on one of Europe’s low-cost airlines, as they offer great deals but are notorious for temporarily misplacing luggage. 
  • If you’re travelling to a country that speaks a different language, impress the locals by learning the basics before you leave and taking a phrase book along with you. 
  • Embassies often require additional paperwork to process your visa application, so make sure to apply at least 2 to 3 months before your European tour. 
  • The best time for winter European holidays is from November to February, while May to October is ideal for a summer European tour. 
  • South Africans habitually tip in almost every service situation, but in Europe the tip is often included in the bill or not expected at all. At most, round up to the nearest Euro — this will be widely appreciated.
  • The electricity in Europe matches South Africa’s 220 voltage supply, so while you may need a travel adapter for your European holidays, a voltage converter will not be necessary. 
  • Visa’s Cash Passport is a great way to solve all your foreign exchange problems, as you can load up rands before you leave and top up online during your European trip.
