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.
The amount of Dutch travellers who have booked their holiday vacations for 2019 has declined in December 2018. Also the amount of bookings in January were a bit disappointing. That’s why many parties have set up marketing campaigns to encourage the Dutch to book.
