Total Expenditure in Alberta (2019)

*Visitation and expenditure estimates are not available for the Netherlands for the 2021 calendar year.

Overview

In the first half of 2023, more people from the Netherlands travelled to Alberta. By June, it seems that there were about 88% as many travellers as there were in 2019. This is a big increase from the 40% in 2021. However, the Netherlands is facing challenges as prices rise due to high inflation. This makes it difficult for people to save money like they did at the start of the pandemic and there is less leisure money to spend. This will likely slow down recovery. Experts from Oxford Economics think that by the end of 2023, the number of people traveling out of the Netherlands will continue to be about 88% of what it was in 2019, returning to peak levels in 2025.
