The travel sales increased by 3 percent in 2011 in Sweden and it was mostly flights and hotel nights, people in Sweden tend to create their own travel packages now and not book the ready travel packages. Especially when it comes to weekend trips.
All I can say though: it was not us! We did travel way too little in 2011, but planning to change that in 2012 for sure! Both within Sweden and in Europe this year. (Will tell you more later).
Some favorite travel destinations among the Swedes are: Antalya/Southeast Turkey, Gran Canaria, Mallorca, London, New York, Crete, Tenerife, Phuket, Cyprus and Rhodes. London and NY kicked out holiday places like Phuket and Crete.
Spain is still a top country for Swedes, but also Turkey, United States, Greece, Thailand, Great Britain, Italy, Cyprus, France, Egypt and many others. Greece and Egypt has fallen back a little because of the political problems.
Obviously Swedes has not stopped their travel because of the financial crises or political activity, maybe it’s the Viking travel blood, what do you think…?
