momondo analysis: Where did Romanians travel in 2019

Because the year is approaching its end and a new decade is about to begin, the metasearch momondo team created an interactive map that shows what data says about the tops, trends and prices of Romanian tourists in 2019. This study reveals the cheapest and most popular cities, both inside and outside the borders of Europe. In addition, the analysis of specialists from momondo shows the countries against which the interest of Romanians has increased significantly this year, thus revealing future travel trends.

Petra is a historical and archaeological city in the southern Jordanian governorate of Ma’an that is famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system.

 

Top destinations: Rome, London and Barcelona in the top of the list

 

The big European capitals remain top of the list for Romanians, who choose to spend their holidays in the lands of Rome, London or Barcelona more than anywhere else in the world. Vienna, Milan, Paris and Athens follow closely the Italian, English and Spanish metropolises, and medium prices that do not exceed 150 € for round trip flights explain, in part, these first 10 preferences of Romanians.

The search trends reveal the pursuit of Romanians for adventure and diversification

 

In 2019, Romanian travelers are more than curious to know countries far from the borders of Europe. The desert landscapes typical for the Middle East, the lands laden with history and the presence of one of the seven wonders of the world placed Jordan in the first place among the trendiest countries, with a 222% increase in flight searches compared to the previous year. It is followed at a considerable distance by Austria (+ 80%), Latin American countries (Panama, Mexico and the Dominican Republic) and Asian destinations (Japan, Indonesia, Philippines).

The desire of Romanians to discover new horizons is also proved by the spectacular increase of searches to the Thai province of Phuket (257% more sought than in 2018).
