Greece Tops List in U.S. for Most Searched European Destination

NEW YORK – As international travel restrictions continue due to the coronavirus pandemic, Americans are still searching for their favorite destinations and Greece tops the list among the European countries, according to the travel company Trainline which helps Americans find their way across the UK and Europe by train and coach.

According to the Trainline website, “we’ve been researching where our pals across the pond have been keen to travel to – both outside and inside the U.S.

“From planning that trip of a lifetime to organizing a long weekend with friends, most vacations start off with a simple Google search – but where are American citizens actually looking to go? To find out, we crunched the numbers on over 4.5 million Google searches from the last twelve months, looking at data for c.300 destinations around the globe.”

“Greece topped America’s list of European destinations,” Trainline noted, with Italy in second place.

According to the Trainline website, their methodology included analyzing “4.5 million keywords over the course of twelve months using Google’s Keyword Planner tool.

“We included a range of phrases like ‘trips to’ and ‘holidays in’ each destination, before cutting the search data by state. Figures [are] accurate as of July 2020. Some data on cities within states or countries has combined i.e. Las Vegas and Nevada, Paris and France, Rome and Italy.”
