Travelling abroad has become much easier in the past 20 years, because it is more simple to plan your trip based on the information you can find on the internet. In the past only wealthy people could afford holidays but these days many people go abroad. The seaside in the summer, and ski resorts in the winter are the most popular destinations for Hungarians.
Young people often travel to find out more about the world. Backpackers are interested in exotic places and different cultures. These days it is possible to travel on a budget and families often go on package holidays to Greece, Italy or Croatia. Travelling on business is different; trips are often short, hectic and tiring. We can see more and more pensioners going on holiday tours, visiting famous cities and beauty spots. After retiring, it is easier to go abroad because they don’t have a job to worry about and they can avoid the summer crowds. In Hungary, however, many elderly people cannot afford to go abroad because pensions are low.
In the European Union, personal documents are necessary to identify yourself: you need an ID card or a passport. Before going abroad to other parts of the world, always check if you need a visa. Besides organizing travel and accommodation, it is a good idea to take out travel insurance. If you have no time to sort this out, you can go to a travel agency, where they are can book your flight and accommodation, too.
