Europe Deals As the Euro Falls
This week, the euro dropped to its lowest level against the dollar since January, as countries of the eurozone attempt to solve a mounting debt crisis. Although the euro has since rebounded slightly, it is forecasted to drop even lower in the early months of 2012.
This means even more savings for American travelers at a time when deals abound to attract tourists to Europe during nonpeak winter and spring months.
