France, Italy, Central Europe Strong into Fall
Normandy is on top for affluent, independent clients, reports Eurobound. The company, which specializes in customized individual and small-group travel to Europe, notes that France, Italy, and Central Europe—Vienna, Budapest, Prague—as well as Croatia are also selling well into the fall season.
“Within countries, we are seeing strong demand for lesser-promoted regions like Normandy. Often because a travel agent may not be familiar with the area, they seek our expertise in finding the best arrangements, local accommodations and experiences to suit their clients’ needs,” says Brigitte Armand, Eurobound’s president.
