While 2023 was dominated by Europe, Europe and more Europe, our Executive Leisure experts have noticed a bit more of a mix for 2024. Europe still reigns supreme next year, but we also have strong advance bookings for Japan, Vietnam, the US and cruises.  

USA vs Europe Golf!  We are taking registrations for the 45th Ryder Cup at the Bethpage Black, New York Club in September 2025. Our clients to the recent event in Rome enjoyed seeing star golfers up close! Ask your usual ATPI Consultant to book you. 

Clients who visited Europe, in particular France and Italy, this European summer will be aware of the massive crowds of tourists. All major sightseeing favourites, monuments and hotels were chaotic and at breaking point!  Consider visiting Italy out of season as it offers a unique and enchanting experience. As the summer crowds disperse and temperatures mellow, Italy's charm emerges in its purest form. Autumn's golden hues paint the landscapes, offering the perfect backdrop for exploring historic cities like Florence and Venice without the chaos. Mild winters reveal a quieter, more authentic Italy, allowing you to savour renowned cuisine and local wines in peace. Museums, galleries, and iconic sites become more accessible, offering uninterrupted encounters with world-class art and history. Plus, accommodation and flights are often more affordable, making Europe out of season ideal for the savvy traveller. Weather in southern Europe is relatively ‘winter-mild’.
