Because of the weak Czech currency, tour operators organizing holidays abroad warn that they will be forced to increase the prices, which of course is not likely to encourage more travelers to visit foreign countries. On the other hand, changing prices and announcing their increase might be a smart marketing strategy convincing tourists to book and pay their vacation now.
According to the poll with almost 3.000 respondents at least one third of Czechs will stay at home this year. Almost 25 percent travelers will organize their trip on their own.
