Hopper recently released their Consumer Travel Index for the first quarter of 2023, and according to the findings, 56% of U.S. travelers are searching for international trips this year, which is up from a mere 10% in 2022. Of those international searches, 34% of them are for European cities.

Key takeaways

  • Europe-bound flights are averaging $801 roundtrip, 27% more from the same time in 2022;
  • Transatlantic flight volume is now 10% higher than it was pre-pandemic and poised to grow further in 2023;
  • This might be the year to consider under-the-radar destinations like Slovenia, Georgia and Romania.
