Fewer people plan to go on holiday this year

Over one in four people in the Netherlands are considering not taking a holiday this year, according to research for the tourism board NBTC.

In total, 27% people may not have a holiday break, compared with 22% in 2012, the research shows.
Those who are planning a getaway will spend less money and long-haul holidays will be hardest hit.
Last year, the Dutch spent €15.7bn on holidays, of which almost €3bn was spent in the Netherlands itself.
