What are Europe’s visa/passport requirements?
If you’re planning to spend less than 90 days in the Schengen area, you can get by using just your U.S. passport–no Visa required. However, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date you leave the Schengen area.
Check to see if the country or countries you’re planning to visit are within the Schengen area. Otherwise, check the visa/passport requirements of each individual country as they may vary.
What are the most popular destinations in Europe?
Europe has an endless list of amazing travel destinations but some are far more world famous then others. According to U.S. News, the top 10 European travel destinations are:
– Europe guidebook: If you’re visiting many countries in Europe, one solid European guidebook is great. Otherwise, look for individual country-centric guidebooks. My favorite brands are Rick Steves, Rough Guides, and Fodor’s.
– Travel insurance. Unfortunately, things can and do go wrong when you travel. World Nomads offers coverage for more than 150 activities as well as emergency medical, lost luggage, trip cancellation and more.
