The authors study the probability of taking a vacation, foreign or domestic, and the expenditures of Dutch households on vacations. The paper first provides a brief review of Dutch vacation behaviour over the past 30 years. It then presents the results of statistical models for destination choice and the number of vacations, and for the expenditure conditional on the destination and the number of vacations. A higher income and a higher level of education increase the probability of a vacation abroad. In addition, expenditures increase with income, but when two vacations are undertaken the vacation abroad benefits most from this increase. Participation in both a domestic vacation and a vacation abroad increases steeply up to an annual income of €60,000.
