Europe offers a melting-pot of fascinating cultures, ancient history and beautiful architecture, artwork, picturesque villages and spectacular countryside – all bundled up in a compact little package.

A holiday in Europe offers something for everyone. With little distance between each of the countries, exploring it is so easy. Major airlines such as Qantas, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Malaysia Airlines fly directly out of Australia into multiple European holiday destinations, making the option to fly into one city and out of another an economical way to see as much as you can in the time you have.

Sit back and let someone else do the driving on a European holiday coach tour – this can be a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time while getting to know your fellow travellers. For a relaxing experience on the ultimate European holiday, unpack once as you sail down one of the many rivers systems on a luxury river ship or cruise the high seas from city to city. A Eurail pass offers a great way to travel as the locals do, using Europe’s extensive and highly efficient railway system. Drive your way around Europe for a more personalised experience. With so many quaint towns and scenic spots to see along the way, car hire is a great way to explore a country at your own pace.

With the advent of low-cost carriers, flying from city to city is an affordable and timesaving way to get around. Spend the weekend wandering Venice’s winding alleys before catching a flight to Barcelona to explore the city’s amazing architecture. Next you can be sipping a laté at a café in Paris then catching an afternoon matinee on London’s West End. Get off the beaten track in the vineyard-adorned hills of Italy, capture sunset off the beaches of Mykonos, walk the Cinque Terra trails or raise a glass of bubbles over the harbour of Monaco – the choice is yours.

As far as experience-filled holiday destinations go, Europe is difficult to top for its accessibility, diversity and culture – all available within a broad range of holiday budgets. Whatever you want to do on your European holiday, Business and Leisure Travel in conjunction with our wide range of suppliers and operators can put together the ideal travel itinerary.
