Usage & Reported Frequency of Visit
The consumers’ habits remain stable compared to the first half of 2017 regarding going out, since the majority of the respondents mention again that they frequently go out for food. As in March 2017, cultural activities are mentioned to be used by a smaller proportion of the population with a lower frequency.
Only one out of four reports intention for winter holidays with duration of more than 3 days, but also nearly four out of ten report intention for relatively shorter winter holidays of less than 3 days duration.
Winter holidays abroad are mainly preferred for visiting friends / relatives and gaining new experiences, in contrast to the winter holidays in Cyprus which are mostly preferred due to a lower cost.
