The Portuguese are ‘shuffled’ and very undecided as to whether to take a vacation to 2021, with 61% on average carrying over 7 days from 2020 to this year, announced today Fixando in a survey of 6750 users about vacation plans for 2021.

Although 38% do not know when they will have to communicate their holidays to the employer, 14% say they want to communicate their holidays as soon as possible: 11% already in January, 13% between February and March, while 24% only estimate it after April.

Of the respondents, 43% are not confident about being able to go on vacation without restrictions due to the pandemic, and 54% do not believe that it will be possible to participate in events or in summer festivals and cultural shows in the pre-pandemic model.

With regard to the dates to enjoy the longest vacation period, the vast majority (46%) choose the period between July and September, followed by the period between January and March, preferred by only 9% of respondents.

Regarding the type of plans on the table, 25% want to travel within Portugal, which will help to rebuild the tourism and catering economy, and 14% expect to have the possibility to visit abroad, with the rest not yet knowing what they will do.

Fixando recalls that in 2020, 58% stayed at home, 34% stayed in Portugal, 6% traveled abroad and only 2% visited the Islands.

The survey estimates that this year the Portuguese can spend an average of € 698 on vacation, an amount higher than € 100 compared to 2020, where the average budget was € 594 and, 27% of respondents did not spend any amount on vacation.
