Germans remain keen to travel. According to the current "vacation travel trend", 2018 should also be a good year for the industry.
"The vacation spirit is pronounced. A further slight growth in demand is possible," said tourism researcher martin lohmann on friday at the presentation of the study at the start of the travel trade fair CMT. 43 percent of respondents had both a desire for a vacation and enough time and money for it. "The vacation mood of germans is growing from year to year," said lohmann.
With a share of about 30 percent, domestic vacation destinations are expected to top the list again this year, followed by destinations in spain, italy, turkey and austria. Turkey remains an important travel destination despite loss of market share, study says. The world’s largest travel company, tui, recently reported a renewed interest among germans in vacation travel to turkey.
