Goway Puts Spotlight On Winter Travel in Europe

Goway is touting the benefits of off-season travel to Europe, an ideal time to travel without the crowds.

In Southern Europe, balmy Mediterranean breezes keep the temperature cool, but far from cold, making spots like Spain, France, Croatia and Italy the perfect place for travellers to kick up their feet along beautiful shorelines.

“Whether it’s a luxury trip or a more budget-conscious long-stay, the team at Goway can organize itineraries that cater to a wide range of travellers, no matter their preferred travel style,” says Robert Miller, product manager for Northern Europe and the UK at Goway. “Small group touring, private guided travel, self-drive experiences, or long stays – Goway can do them all.”

Winter is also a perfect time to cruise the Mediterranean. The appeal is obvious, says Goway, you only have to unpack once and get to experience several unique countries and ports on one convenient itinerary. Goway also offers a range of excellent options to combine with a cruise for pre- or post-cruise travels.

Travellers not daunted by cooler weather should consider Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands for their winter travel. Although the temperature is on par with winter in Canada, Goway notes there are several advantages to winter travel in Europe.

“There are far fewer travellers, meaning your experience will be more intimate and exclusive,” says Miller. “As well, many hotels offer very competitive rates during the winter season. From mid-November until (in most cases) Dec. 24, many European cities and towns operate dazzling Christmas markets, where travellers can discover a range of local specialities.”
