A total of 55 percent of the respondents cited money (or, rather, the lack thereof) for not having a summer holiday this year. This was the prevailing reason among women, while men cited “work overload” most frequently.

As much as half of the people from the Košice, Nitra and Prešov regions did not have a summer holiday this year because they could not afford it.

Meanwhile, one in three people with a salary of up to €600 per month is willing to spend €500 to €1,000 on a summer holiday. Almost every other person earning more than €1,500 is ready to spend more than €1,000 on a summer holiday. On aggregate, the largest share (60 percent) of people who could afford a holiday this summer were from the Bratislava region.
