In 2017 the Dutch traveled more than in 2016, especially abroad, a new study from NBTC-NIPO shows. The research, on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that more than 13 million Dutch, 82% of the total population, went on holiday at least once during 2017. That's around 250,000 more compared to 2016.

Last year 16.8 billion Euros were spent in total on holidays in and out of the Nehterlands, which is 1 billion Euros more than 2016.

Dutch residents went on vacation more often in 2016, though more of them stuck to vacationing in the Netherlands rather than going abroad, according to figures from NBTC NIPO Research. Dutch also paid closer attention to safety last year, avoiding places with terrorism threat or political unrest. Turkey in particular was a place to avoid for the Dutch last year, with visits there decreasing by 30 percent, NOS reports.

The Dutch holiday market has still not recovered from the economic crisis. The number of holidays taken in the past year fell by half a million to about 35 million holidays. A decrease of 1.5 percent compared to last year.
