Faced with inflation, the French are reducing their holiday budget by changing the standard of their rentals, for example, or by going less far.

A few days before departures for the summer holidays, many French people plan to revise their budget downwards. There is no question of splurging on tourists from the Côte d’Opale. “We do fewer visits to museums, parks”explains a tourist. “To come here, we only took part of the highway, we only drive at 110 km/h to spend less”continues the woman. 64% of French people plan to spend 1,641 euros on average in 2022, compared to 1,765 euros in 2019.

In a campsite in Pas-de-Calais, a retiree has rented a bungalow for three days and does not plan as many outings as in other years. For the director of the establishment, if the campsite is complete this summer, it is above all thanks to local customers. “Compared to last year when we had people from the Paris region, there this year, we see it much less”he said. Leaving closer to home to reduce costs is also the choice of a family in Essonne.
