Research of Interhome (a Swiss rental-home company) gives us insight in the booking behaviour of Dutch consumers. One of the things that is interesting is that there is a significant difference between bookings in December and February. Bookings for February are made one year in advance, while bookings for Christmas holidays are made six months in advance.
More Dutch travelers chose to travel by international train this summer. NS International noted an average growth of 13% to all destinations in the months of June until August. The intercity to Berlin performed best and realized a growth of 19%. It is the third summer record in a row for NS International.
The Dutch travel industry is doing well. It saw its turnover grow with 13.3 percent in the third quarter in 2017. According to figures of ANVR GfK Travelscan, the booking numbers for 2018 are more than 8 percent higher than 2017. Turkey in particular is making a comeback. The holiday destination seems to be heading for a growth of no less than 60 percent compared to this period last year. Greece follows with a plus of 16 percent.
Mostly you will be able to spot the Dutch from a far distance because they’re so tall. And if you’re not seeing them, you will probably hear them because they tend to be quite loud. But there are more ways to recognise a Dutch tourist enjoying their holidays.
In 2017, 85% of the Dutch went on holiday in Europe, with a total of 18,9 million vacations. Especially the Western (42,5%) and Southern (28%) part of Europe are the most popular.
Valencia is the most popular city of Spain among Dutch travellers. In 2018, more than 127.000 Dutch travellers chose the Spanish city for a short stay.
