One in four respondents say they have become happier to use Norway as a holiday country, and similarly, many believe that holiday accommodation abroad has become less attractive, according to a survey Ipsos has conducted on behalf of DNB.
The survey also shows that there has been greater interest in buying a cabin in Norway.
“The demand for cabins is at an all-time high. Many have bought a cabin in the last year, and several are planning to buy a cabin. 7% are planning a cabin purchase in the short term, and a further 14% envisage a cabin purchase in the slightly longer term.
“This indicates that the demand for holiday homes will continue in the future,” segment manager for the cabin market in DNB Eiendom, Tone C. Krange, noted.
Cabins – a lifetime project
For most Norwegians, the cabin purchase is a lifetime project. The survey shows that 80% of those who own a cabin in Norway today envisage keeping it in the foreseeable future. However, only 50% of those who have holiday homes abroad plan to do so.
Furthermore, 24% answer respondents in the survey noted that holiday homes abroad have become less attractive after the corona crisis.
