ETC: GREECE AMONG EUROPEANS’ TOP 5 PREFERRED INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS
More specifically, according to the ETC’s “Monitoring Sentiment for Domestic and Intra-European Travel” report, Greece was the 5th destination of choice mentioned by the Germans, Austrians, Belgians and the French, 4th for the British and Polish and 3rd for the Italians.
Overall, according to the ETC, about 72 percent of Europeans intend to travel between April and September this year with leisure remaining the primary reason for travel (69 percent), though a drop of 7 percent over 2022 suggests a potential slowdown in the post-pandemic ‘revenge’ travel. Furthermore data shows that this year, more Europeans are planning spring and early summer getaways with nearly 30 percent of travelers saying they intend to take an overnight trip between April and May, representing a 6 percent increase over 2022. Additionally, 40 percent of those surveyed are considering travelling in early-to-mid summer (June to July).
