In Turkey, domestic tourism spending increased almost 10.4% year-on-year in the third quarter of last year, the Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) declared on Wednesday.

 

On trips in July-September, residents spent almost 23.3 billion Turkish liras ($4.1 billion) compared to 21.1 billion liras ($3.4 billion) in the same quarter of the year before.

 

The data of the third quarter showed that tourists indulged in 24.3 million trips, declining almost 2.9% on an annual basis.

 

Domestic trips with one or more than one overnights fell 1.8% compared to the same time span in 2018, standing at 31.9 million.

 

From July to September, the average expenditure per trip was 731 Turkish liras (some $129).

 

“The highest increases were health expenditures with 36.1%, other expenditures (sports, entertainment, education, jewelry, gold, silver, carpet, rug) with 21.1% and accommodation expenditures with 14.3%,” it said.

 

The main reason for those trips were visiting the relatives, accounting for almost 60.5% share, followed by travel, leisure, and holiday with 33.8%, and health with 3% respectively.
