With just under two months left in 2020, three out of ten Norwegians still have holiday days to spare that must be used this year. Nine out of ten Norwegians say they will not fly abroad this year.
In the Norwegian Corona Monitor survey, 31% of those surveyed said they have holiday days that must be taken or that they want to use by the end of the year.
“Many Norwegians chose to postpone parts of the summer holidays in the hope of better opportunities later in the year.
“But now time is running out, and it isn’t easy to know where to go,” senior adviser Nora Clausen at Opinion noted.
She thinks many dropped or postponed the summer holidays this year, hoping that it would get better later this year.
But now, the situation is even worse.
In the survey, 68% also answered that they would not fly domestically by the end of the year, while as many as 89% said they wouldn’t be flying abroad.
According to the UN organization UNWTO (World Tourism Organization), international tourism has fallen by as much as 70% in the first eight months of this year.
