Most people look forward to their holidays. However, as newly released data from Eurostat demonstrates, 1 in 3 Europeans cannot afford spending an annual one-week leave away from home. This number was highest in Romania where 66.6 percent of the general population cannot afford domestic holidays or travels abroad. Croatia is in second place with 62.8 percent.
In Norway however, most people can afford holidays away from home, while only 6 percent cannot. The Swedes are in a similar position with around 8 percent being unable to afford one week off a year.
Nevertheless, the proportion of those spending their holidays someplace else than home decreased in all EU member states except Cyprus, Denmark and Greece which are not listed in the graphic.
