Never ending winter drives Swedes abroad

Published tisdag 26 mars 2013 kl 11.11
Summertime seems far away at the moment

Despite a shaky European economy, nearly half of all Swedes plan to travel abroad this summer.

This can be compared to the 37 percent who left the country for summer holidays abroad last year, according to a survey by market research company Yougov. This year's long and cold winter, which followed a disapointedly short 2012 summer, has caused many sun-lovers to cover their bets by booking a trip to a destination with a more reliably warm climate.

Holiday bookings by the Ticket travel agency are up by 20 percent for May-to-September, compared to the same period last year, according to the newspaper Metro.
