Fewer People Have Been on Holiday

In 2020 only one in five adult Poles went away on a week’s holiday, which is the lowest result since 1992, when records began, and shows a drop of 15 percentage points on 2019. The proportion of people going on holiday has been at a comparably low level only a few times: in 1992, 1994 and 2005.

* There was no survey on this subject in 1993. In 1992 – 2002 people were asked, “Have you been away this year on a holiday lasting at least a week?” In 2003 – 2011 people were asked, “Have you been away this year on a holiday lasting at least a week, or do you intend to do so?” In relation to 2012 – 2020, after the end of the year respondents were asked to describe the breaks they went away on (to a maximum of seven), including the duration of each one.

The effect of the Covid-19 pandemic is also clear on leisure trips with at least one overnight stay. Only 39% of adults went away in 2020 on a two-day break, a drop of 16 percentage points on 2019 and the lowest result since records about this began in 2012. In the year of the pandemic both holidays at home and abroad were affected.
