Despite a large number of domestic arrivals in tourist accommodation, domestic tourists in many countries are less likely to stay in traditional travel accommodation. In Spain for example, residents are more likely to stay with family or friends or at their own property when staying overnight. This is similar for travelers in Iceland, however tents, trailers and motor homes are also a popular option.
Choice of destination often depends on the length of the trip and the geographical nature of the country. For example, in Britain most day trips in 2015 were taken to a city or town, although seaside and countryside destinations are also visited. For longer overnight trips, Europeans tend to head to rural rather than urban destinations. Italian tourists, for example, take more domestic holidays on the coast, on cruises or in the mountains. Such vacations also tend to be longer, as can be seen with the length of travel by French tourists; they were likely to spend around a week on the coast or in the mountains, compared to 3 or 4 days in a city.
