Adventures into old and new

Europe is a whole world in itself. It's a mixture of old and new, where edgy underground music mingles with historical, cobblestoned sidewalks. Visit Europe for its metropolitan shopping, for its beach-side bungalows on the Mediterranean, for the night clubs and the coffee shops, the canals and the bike paths. It's all within arm's reach, wherever you land in Europe. 

Europe in a nutshell

If you’ve ever wanted to break a record for the most amount of countries ever visited in a day, Europe is the place to do it. With 50 countries all crammed into one continent, it’s easy to travel Europe by car, train, plane or even boat. While we don’t recommend speeding your way through in 24 hours, we do recommend seeing as much as possible! From Western Europe through Central, down to the Mediterranean, up to Scandinavia and over to Eastern Europe, each country is wildly different to the one before, each with its own personality, culture, history and nightlife!

Travelling to Europe

Travel to and within Europe is easier than it’s ever been, and travel deals to Europe seem to be cropping up left, right and centre. Flights can take you straight to England as a jumping off point, from which STA Travel can take you anywhere your wanderlust pulls you. Whether you’d prefer to hit the Mediterranean beaches, take the fashion capitals by storm, or road trip your way across the whole continent, STA has you covered with tours, flights and packages to suit you and your crew.
