Half of holiday makers believe holidaying in Ireland is ‘exorbitant’

The new research shows that over half of all tourists consider that a holiday in Ireland is “exorbitant.”

According to an Aviva Insurance Ireland survey, 70% of consumers say Ireland does not compete in terms of cost when going overseas. Despite recent increases in the cost of plane travel, 55% of those polled indicated they wanted to go overseas this year.

“While inflationary pressures on air travel may make it an unappealing or unaffordable option for some people,” said Billy Shannon of Aviva Insurance Ireland, “our survey suggests it is unlikely to take a significant hit this year in terms of reduced demand.”

“It is unclear whether people are determined to travel abroad for the warm weather and a change of environment, or whether they are simply choosing a holiday that they believe offers better value than those available in Ireland.” “Perhaps it’s a mix of the two,” he continued.

Young people between 18 to 24 show the greatest desire to travel, with 75% believing that rising expenses will have no effect on their visits overseas. Meanwhile, 39% stated they have no plans to “consider” the possibility of harsh weather abroad.

When it comes to holidays in Ireland, 32% of those over the age of 55 say it is worthwhile, compared to only 22% of those aged 35 to 44.

18% of respondents polled claimed they would be unable to afford any vacations this year.
