Most Popular Summer Holiday Destinations In Hungary Revealed - Along With How Much Locals Spend On Accommodation
Around one-third of Hungarians say they are thinking of going on holiday this summer, Szallas.hu said, citing a survey conducted in cooperation with pollster Ipsos.

According to Szallas.hu, Hungary’s easing of coronavirus-related restrictions has had a noticeable impact on the figures, with reservations for the summer increasing daily. Szallas.hu PR manager Beatrix Trepess said that several times as many reservations have now been made as this time last year.

Most respondents are planning to spend up to 100,000 forints (EUR 277) on accommodation for their holidays, calculating with four nights and 3-4 family members on average, compared with 2-3 nights last year.

Fully 33% of the reservations are for apartments, and 25% for hotels.

Two-thirds of the respondents are planning to stay inside Hungary, while 20% would go abroad. Some 11-12% of respondents would book holidays both inside Hungary and in another country.

One-third of respondents said they were not entertaining holiday plans at all.

The most popular domestic destinations are Lake Balaton, Hévíz, Eger, Hajdúszoboszló, Lillafüred and Szilvásvárad.
