In the summer, more than half of Finns plan to travel outside their home province at least as much as before, according to a survey by Uutissuomalainen. 42 per cent of the respondents plan to travel to the former model, while 13 per cent say that they travel more than usual within Finland.

However, less than a quarter said they would reduce their domestic trips. Northern Finland has the most reducing travel outside its country of residence and Uusimaa the most increasing it.

Every tenth of all respondents says that they do not plan to travel in Finland in the summer. The proportion of those who avoid traveling is highest among those over 70 years of age. 17 percent of them plan to stay in their home province.

Four per cent of people over the age of 70 plan to increase their travel and 47 per cent keep their travel habits unchanged.

The State Department continues to urge to avoid traveling abroad due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A survey of a thousand respondents was conducted by Tietoykkönen in the second half of May. The margin of error is 3.1 percentage points in its direction.
