Despite lifting covid restrictions, we are still quite skeptical about planning summer vacations. According to the Provident Barometer, nearly one in four Poles will spend this year's vacation at home, and the most common reason is the tight financial situation. One in three will go away for a week at the most, and 17 percent plan to spend no more than PLN 1,000 on this purpose. This mainly concerns women and people from younger age groups. Older Poles are going on vacation for longer and intend to spend more money for this purpose.
"As part of this year's Provident Barometer survey, we asked Poles about their vacation plans and how much money they intend to spend for this purpose. It turns out that about 66 percent of the respondents will go on vacation this year,” Karolina Łuczak, spokeswoman for Provident Polska, said.
Provident Barometer survey, conducted in June this year on a group of nearly 1,100 people, indicated that every fourth Pole would spend this year's vacation at home. Although the holidays are near, there was no shortage of those who still do not know where and whether they will decide to go on vacation.
"We do not go on vacation primarily because we cannot afford it. As many as 66 percent of those surveyed who will stay at home during the vacations declare that they do not have the funds," Karolina Łuczak added.
