According to figures from DNB, fewer Norwegians go on day trips to Sweden to shop now than before the corona pandemic. The decrease from 2019 amounts to 28%.

According to the newspaper Avisa Oslo, the figures include those who have used their card on a day trip across the border, and those who have been there for several days were not included in the overview.

“After the reopening, we thought that going to Sweden to shop would quickly bounce back to 2019 levels, but it has taken a while. If we look at April, May, and June 2022, the number of day trips has been 28% below what we saw in 2019,” Ine Oftedahl at DNB stated.

The average amount Norwegians spend has increased from NOK 1,550 in 2019 to NOK 1,700 in 2022, which is roughly in line with the general price increase.
