1. Time is money
Time is money. And by this, we mean your limited working annual leave is money. A city break allows you to experience a cultural microcosm of a country in a short time. Depending on your destination, less paperwork is often required, less insurance, and fewer currency concerns. In only a few short days, you can experience a hyper-distilled cocktail of cuisine, language, architecture, art, history, and people. That’s a tremendous amount of culture to partake in a short amount of time. The best thing? You can do it all over again with a long weekend next month.
2. Money is money
Money is money. And by this, we mean that travel can get pretty expensive. City breaks (and weekend breaks in general) offer an excellent way to scratch that wanderlust itch yet not break the bank. Book services in advance, fly on a budget, travel carry-on only, and let us assist you with perfectly suitable accommodations scattered all over Europe.
3. Adventure is on your doorstep
Asia, Oceania, and the Americas have countless exotic destinations to explore. You wouldn’t be blamed for craving the bustle and beaches of Thailand, for example. That all being said, it’s easy to overlook the gems on our continental doorstep. You can head to classic locations like Paris, Berlin, Madrid, and Rome. They’re famous for a reason! Suppose you’re looking for something different (and often cheaper). In that case, you can also explore some of the relatively lesser traveled cities such as Krakow with its illustrious history, Budapest with its deceptively fantastic restaurants (6 Michelin star restaurants in the city alone) and Bilbao which is surrounded by mountains and holds the famed Guggenheim.
4. Sustainable travel
European city breaks offer a unique chance to capitalize on sustainable travel. Due to their proximity, you can use greener transport and avoid carbon-heavy flights. When you reach your destination and have dropped your bags, there is no better way of exploring the city than by foot, eliminating the carbon problem. There are also plenty of hostels and hotels in European cities that hold eco-accreditations that can guarantee that your chosen accommodation adheres to specific sustainability criteria.
5. Travel light
We’ve brushed upon one of the most significant benefits of city breaks already: flying carry-on only. As well as the financial benefits, traveling carry-on only saves you time at baggage carrousel makes it easier to move around, and means you’re more focused on your holiday. Do you need your 2 coats, 3 pairs of shoes, and both a laptop and an iPad? No? Well good, because you only have one bag anyway! Ditch the excess, travel light, and get exploring.
