American Express Travel’s 2023 Trending Destinations highlight must-visit destinations, identified by global American Express® Card Member travel bookings. To celebrate the local culture of these trending destinations, we’ve created 3-day itineraries, expertly curated with every type of traveler in mind.

With 88% of Amex Trendex respondents indicating that they wish their trips were longer, we’re helping Platinum Card® and Centurion® Members make the most of their vacation time with guaranteed 4 p.m. check-out when booking a Fine Hotels + Resorts® property through American Express Travel. Late check out, one of the many premium benefits unlocked when booking with American Express Travel, allows travelers a “bonus day” to extend their vacations.*

The Trending Destinations itineraries highlight ways to spend that time, ensuring Card Members get the most out of their trips including a master cheese class in Paris, sailing to the Prince’s islands in Istanbul, and a shopping excursion of authentic Portuguese goods in Lisbon.

Foodies will appreciate macaron making and maple syrup tasting, active adventurers will find snorkeling and sailing opportunities, while history buffs will see endless ways to witness some of the planet’s most influential artwork and landmarks.
