For the British holidays are the first game where you want to save now and into the future (14%) ahead of the clothes (12%) and expenditure on transport (10%). In contrast to the French vacation savings is fifth place. But what is clear is that the Europeans are strict when it comes to not save either in power or in health. Crisis boosts the savings among vacationers in 2012 (those which have declared that they will be on vacation at least once this year), the trend is the save the majority (53%). The Spaniards again are the first in the ranking when it comes to declare that we will save (66% says), followed by the British (62%) and Italians (59%).

Only 46 percent of the French want to save money on their summer vacation. Same budget than in 2011 while the plans of going on holiday among Europeans is very low this year, for those who have stated that yes they will go on vacation, the budget allocated (including transportation, accommodation, food and entertainment) is stable: 2.125, just 20 fewer than in 2011. Either way, the budget varies among countries. While this rises in countries such as Germany (+ 229) and recovers a little in Spain (+ 74; 1,863 vs 1,789 in 2011), on the other hand falls in Austria (- 165), Belgium (- 198) and, especially, in Italy (- 554). The United Kingdom maintains levels very similar to those of the year passed (+ 8). At the moment only Spain and Italy are below the threshold of 2,000 of budget for the summer holidays.
