Why is Europe so busy this summer?

Subscribe now using your favorite service:

Travel to Europe surged last summer after two years of pandemic-related restrictions, and this year is no different. The continent is undeniably busy — even busier than last summer, by many metrics. Travel advisors are grappling with planning travel to sometimes sold-out destinations, difficulty securing airfare, high prices and more.

In this episode, we’ll help navigate European travel this summer with the help of Lindsay Taylor-Lauer, director of luxury and hosting at Travel Leaders 365. We answer listener questions about dealing with sold-out suppliers, getting in touch with luxury operators and more. We’re also starting a new Trade Secrets tradition: count how many times Jamie’s microphone, which is on a spring-loaded stand, goes flying in an episode (spoiler: it’s just once this time).

This episode is sponsored by Windstar Cruises.
