Most Lithuanians (54 percent), similarly as the average European, said that the main source of information deciding on holiday plans are recommendations from friends, colleagues or relatives. 39 percent of Lithuanians plan their holidays using information provided online.

"All inclusive holiday packages" are the most frequently chosen in the whole EU by residents of Lithuania, Belgium and Luxembourg - 39 percent. Such holidays are the least popular in Finland and Sweden - 17 percent.

The survey revealed that assessing their holidays in 2014 Lithuanians were mostly pleased about the natural features of a holiday destination and the quality of accommodation. Meanwhile they were mostly displeased about the general level of prices and the quality of the activities or services available.
