Swedes spend record amounts on travel

Swedes spend 10 to 15 percent more on travel today than they did ten years ago, reports Swedish Radio news.

While people save more and buy fewer things, they are spending more on exotic trips with the big travel charter companies.

Lottie Knutson, spokesperson for the charter company Fritidsresor, says there is a big demand for trips right now.

"There are also economic factors at play," she says. "With the bad summer and long winter we have noticed that peoples' desire to travel has reached almost desperate levels."
