For all Member States except Belgium, the average expenditure of older tourists was lower than the overall average. This was notably the case for Lithuania (€19.1 euros per person and day on average for older tourists, compared with €48.4 for the total average, or a difference of €29.3) and Slovakia (-€29.2), followed at a distance by Cyprus (-€24.8), Estonia (-€24.3) and Finland (-€24.1). At EU level, an older tourist spent on average €52.6 a day, compared with €65.3 for the overall average, or €12.7 less per day. It should be noted that tourism expenditures are influenced notably by the duration of trips and by the proportion of holidays spent in second homes or during off-peak seasons.
