The Austrian Automobile, Motorcycle and Touring Club (ÖAMTC) published the results of its current travel monitoring, which is based on a survey of 1.000 people and is representative of the Austrian population.

According to ÖAMTC travel expert Yvette Polasek, the study shows that despite persistent inflation, 95 percent of Austrians want to travel at least once in the summer. In particular, those under 30 are planning to spend their vacation outside Austria, while the 50-59 age group increasingly prefers domestic vacations.

The study also reveals that 62 percent of travelers have to save money due to inflation, with families with children having less budget available in comparison. The most popular travel destinations are Italy and Croatia, followed by Greece, Spain, Germany and Turkey. Half of those surveyed are also planning a vacation within Austria, with Carinthia and Styria being particularly popular. The study also shows that families prefer to travel by private car, while solo travelers increasingly rely on trains and buses.
