Tourists practically always come to mind when picturing Spain. In a country that ranked second in terms of inbound international tourism, this industry is key for the Spanish economy. Yet Spain is often overlooked among the largest outbound tourism countries. Do Spaniards not travel? Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Spain registered approximately 174 million trips that were estimated to be worth about 48 billion euros in 2019. The vast majority of these were, however, within Spanish borders, that is, domestic tourism.
Whatever the destination may be, the most common social profile among Spanish visitors is a person aged 30 to 64 years old, employed and holder of a higher education diploma. Younger generations aged between 15 and 29 years old travel more often than pensioners, although the latter go on holiday more frequently than the unemployed population. The latest studies also reveal that Spaniards like spending time with their loved ones, as they normally go on vacation with their partners or family.
