It may feel like everyone you know is heading to Europe, and if you plan to join them, we have the destinations for you.

Break out your sensible (but stylish) walking shoes, dust off your passport and start your packing list — European summer is calling.

In partnership with HSBC, we’ve curated a series of extensive travel guides highlighting the European cities that deserve your attention this season. With these guides in hand you’ll sidestep the crowds heading to the tourist traps while immersing yourself in the sunshine, culture, history and gastronomic wonders these picturesque locations have in abundance.

If plotting trips isn’t your forte, never fear. We’ve taken care of much of the tedious itinerary planning, leaving you with the simple tasks of making reservations and sorting your holiday spending money. Thanks to the HSBC Everyday Global Account, even these tasks are a breeze.

You can spend fee-free around the world everywhere Visa is accepted. Plus, transfer and spend in up to ten local currencies, including EUR and GBP, and take advantage of real-time exchange rates and preload your all-in-one Visa Debit Card before you even arrive in Europe.


Be prepared for your European adventure by opening an HSBC Everyday Global Account. For more information, head to the website.
