Italy, the U.K. and France, perennial favorites among U.S. travelers, will be the top three destinations, respectively, for affluent travelers during the remainder of the year, according to Virtuoso.
U.S. Virtuoso agencies' bookings for the fall months and holiday season reflect the consistent popularity of Europe, which occupies six spots on the Top 10 list. Spain ranks fifth among favored destinations, followed by the Netherlands (#8) and Germany (#9). Virtuoso travel advisors also reported strong sales to South Africa––the fourth most popular destination for the coming season. Also popular are Mexico (#6), Australia (#7) and China (#10). The findings, which are based on future travel plans of Virtuoso clients, were reported at Virtuoso Travel Network in Las Vegas this week.
