The beautiful thing about a long-stay vacation is that you get to spend the extra time to really connect with a place, like a local. Seven days at a resort is fine for most people, but if you’re visiting a city or region full of amazing food, music, sights, and people, you’re going to want to use that time to soak up as much as want and not feel rushed. Going home after only a week is tough. Now you don’t have to.
A long-stay (or extended-stay) vacation, is a type of trip that goes longer than the usual weeklong timeframe. Most long-stay vacations we create stretch on between 21 days to a month. However, if you’d like to stay longer, your AMA travel agent will be happy to suggest vacation packages that maximize your time and budget.
We like to think that staying for an extended period in any destination will give you a deeper appreciation for it. But our most popular long-stay destinations include Portugal, Spain, Italy, and French Riviera.
All travellers have different interests. But especially popular long-stay vacation destinations tend to have consistently warm weather, lots of local history to discover, great restaurants, an abundant art scene, and friendly people.
Although proof of travel medical insurance is not required to visit most destinations, we strongly recommend you purchase insurance whenever you travel, especially if you’re going to be away for an extended period. That’s because your provincial healthcare only covers you within Alberta.
