Hungarians are likely to spend much less on travel, if the country’s unified voucher system, which enables employers to offer their employees reduced tax benefits, is replaced with cash renumeration, according to a survey conducted by online accommodation booking system Szallas.hu.

According to the survey, only 17% of respondents said they would spend all of the cash given them in place of the vouchers, MTI reported.

Revisions to the voucher system could be mandated following an EU court ruling in February stipulating that the SZÉP card system be revised because it discriminates against freedom of establishment and the freedom to provide services. 

The Hungarian government could decide on its revisions to the voucher system during a cabinet meeting tomorrow, daily Magyar Idők reported earlier.
