London claims the crown as the top European destination U.S. travelers plan to visit this year. However, it appears the throngs are not being enticed to the British capital by the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton – just four percent of respondents say that next month’s Royal wedding has increased their interest in traveling to the U.K.
Twenty-four percent of Americans planning to visit Europe in 2011 will drive during their trips, while 61 percent have been behind the wheel while overseas in previous years – and seven percent of these motorists have vowed never to do so again.
The top five most common driving mishaps in Europe, according to the survey:
Misreading the map and getting lost – 53%
Stress leading to arguments with passengers – 28%
Driving on the wrong side of the road – 20%
Nearly having an accident – 16%
Receiving a parking ticket – 10%
30 percent of those who have taken to the roads didn’t brush up on the local driving laws, before getting behind the wheel.
28 percent maintain that Europeans are better drivers than Americans, while 48 percent believe that both nations’ driving abilities are on a par.
