All Eurozone countries should benefit from the increase in transatlantic visitors, but some destinations will still be cheaper than others. Choose your vacation destination carefully, and you might find yourself with more to spend when you get there.
If the idea of island hopping on your European vacation appeals to you, Greece has some fantastic deals right now.
