Leisure trips in February 2010

In February Finnish residents made 410,000 overnight leisure trips abroad. In all, 254,000 of them included one or more overnights in the country of destination, one in four in Estonia and one in tenth in Sweden. Most of the cruises including overnights on board only were to Sweden and Estonia. These preliminary data are based on Statistics Finland’s Finnish Travel Survey for which 1,475 persons aged 15 to 74 permanently resident in Finland were interviewed in March.

Finnish residents made 2.4 million leisure trips in Finland. This is 24 per cent up on the corresponding period in the year before. Most of the trips, or 2 million, included free accommodation at one’s own free-time residence, with relatives or friends or in some other type of free accommodation.

The final annual data on the Finnish Travel Survey are published on the homepage of the statistics in July following the statistical reference year. In addition, quarterly preliminary data are published in connection with the monthly publication Tourism Statistics (accommodation statistics) in six weeks from the end of the relevant quarter.
