Hungarians on average spent 130 euros on their holiday in 2015, followed by Czechs, Latvians, and Romanians among European Union countries, the EU’s statistics office has reported.

According to the Eurostat survey, citizens of Luxembourg spent the highest amount, 740 euros, per person and per vacation, followed by Austrians (610 euros), Maltese (590 euros) and Belgians (565) euros.

The European average was 320 euros in 2015.

As we wrote before, half of Hungarians can’t afford to go for holiday. The differences are quite big between the member states of the European Union. The Swedish are the best off, only 8.2% of them have to miss out on vacation. The situation is the worst in Romania and Croatia, where 66.6% and 62% of the population can’t afford to go on a one-week holiday. Hungary is among the tailenders because 50.7% of the respondents claimed that they couldn’t afford to go on a holiday. This is quite distressing, even though the situation has bettered a lot in the past years, for instance, the rate was 67.3% five years ago.
