The abolition of the quarantine obligation, the months spent in solitary confinement, and the good weather all increased the willingness to travel.
According to surveys, 40% of Hungarians say there is no reason to fear tourist travel after the epidemic. The published analysis also shows that day trips, mainly active leisure activities and city visits, are 11% more popular than last year.
Those traveling for a few days are mostly looking for wellness weekends, while those planning for as long as a week would rather go to other countries. In the case of a destination abroad, however, many are afraid of getting stuck there, the website notes.
