NEW YORK, June 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The summer travel season is here. And the world is looking to travel to Paris, the most popular search travel destination, according to GoEuro.
Paris was the single most searched international destination on GoEuro’s search engine for travelers from the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK), Spain and Italy, and it was also the most searched domestic destination for French travelers.
Beyond Paris, France was the most searched country destination for UK travelers, and ranked in the top three destinations for all other countries: the second most searched in Spain and Germany, the third most in the US and Italy.
US travelers’ next most searched destinations were London, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Edinburgh. Overall, the UK was the most searched country for US travelers with Glasgow also making the Top 20. Italy was the second with five destinations on the Top 20 including Venice, Rome, Florence, Milan and Pisa.

Naren Shaam, CEO and founder of GoEuro said,
“Regardless of Paris’ recent terror attacks – or perhaps even in spite of them – travelers around the world continue their love affair with the city of lights. Paris and France are the hottest destinations for summer 2016 according to GoEuro’s search data.”
GoEuro covers rail, coach and air travel in 12 countries and offers passengers the best possible transport options and combinations based on price, duration, and convenience – all in the user’s native language and currency.
