Istria is the best destination for a self-drive holiday. According to a survey of members of the largest German car club during May and June (two crisis months of the coronavirus pandemic), Istria has taken a position at the top of the list of most popular destinations-regions where German guests want to travel. The article entitled “Urlaub mit dem Auto: Die beliebtesten Ziele – trotz Corona” also mentions the most popular vacation countries where Croatia took a high second place, right after Germany.
Poll results – Where are you going on a vacation?
Germany and its tourist regions are even more popular as a tourist destination in the summer of 2020 than in previous years (2019-30,3%). However, many Germans apparently had no plans to travel this year or put them on hold after the Coronavirus crisis. For the first time, Croatia positioned itself in second place among tourist destinations, behind Germany, with a significant gap compared to Italy, which fell from second to fourth place. It is interesting that Poland is no longer on the list in the top 10. Also, a high third place is held by Turkey, where many German Turks go home on vacation. The survey included 85,000 queries.
Poll results – Istria is the best destination for a self-drive holiday
ADAC members were particularly interested in Istria during May and June. This Croatian tourist region in the upper Adriatic accounted for 11 percent. Also, the Dalmatian coast took a high third place with 6.3%. Whether you’re new to the idea of a drive-it-yourself adventure or you’ve already put plenty of kilometers on the clock, these self-drive holiday destinations offer an unforgettable holiday. Also, it is important to point out that Istria has held the first position in this survey for a decade (since 2010).
|Upper Bavaria – Südl. Oberbayern/Allgäu||4.246||6,4%|
|East Frisia – Nordsee Ostfriesische Inseln||2.278||3,4%|
|South Tyrol (Südtirol)||1.842||2,8%|
Almost all Italian holiday destinations that were on the list this year are no longer. Among them are Lake Garda (3rd place last year) and Veneto Friuli (6th place last year). Only South Tyrol is only at the bottom of the list with 2.8 percent (2nd place last year). The reason for this poor result is the coronary virus pandemic that hit Italy hard earlier this year.
