Desire for well-known places, but one or two surprises
Lists of Swedes’ most favoured holiday destinations and countries have been compiled from statistics of bookings made so far for 2017. Bookings before November 27 for a trip abroad next year were up 12%, according to travel agency Ticket.
Like other Europeans, Swedes are avoiding once-popular destinations that have potential for turmoil, prompting a desire to go mainly for well-known places.
“This benefits countries such as Spain, Greece and Croatia, whereas Turkey appears to get a tough 2017,” Ticket spokesperson Karin Starkman said.
Croatia is the only country that is growing significantly, up from 15th spot last year to ninth, with a 47% rise in bookings. London and the UK are also rising, given the slump in the currency there. The rest is essentially a repeat of 2016.
