Portuguese are among the European citizens who spend the least on their holidays, dishing out an average of €136 per trip, less than half the European Union average of €336, according to figures published earlier this week by Eurostat.

Figures from the EU’s official statistics office on, “who spends more on holiday,” with figures for 2016, show that Luxembourgers spend the most, averaging €768 on each trip (one or more overnight stays), followed by Maltese tourists (€646) and Austrians (€607), while Latvians (€107), Romanians (€124), Czechs (€129) and Portuguese (€136) tourists were at the opposite end of the scale.
In absolute terms, Germans spent the most on holiday, accounting for 28 percent of EU tourist spending, which amounted to €120 billion (an average of €443 per trip), which reached €428 billion in 2016.
Of the total amount spent by EU citizens on tourist travel in 2016, 45 percent was sp ent in their country of residence (domestic tourism) and 55 percent in other countries, with 66 percent of Portuguese spending focused on domestic tourism, the fifth highest percentage in the EU.
