Poles travelling more on holiday, both at home and abroad

Last year, Poles set out on nearly 46 million trips domestically, an increase of 5.5 percent compared to 2016, Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

Holiday-makers spent more than PLN 24 billion (USD 6.95 bn, EUR 5.69 bn) in total last year on vacations in Poland.

Sport and Tourism Minister Witold Bańka said that tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors of the Polish economy. He added that it had become fashionable for Poles to spend their holidays in their own country.

But at the same time Poles are increasingly heading off abroad. Last year Poles took a total of 12 million trips outside their own country.

The most popular destinations for Polish tourists are Germany, Italy and Croatia, the IAR agency reported.
