Description

“France ranks as the fifth-largest outbound market in expenditure terms, reports the UNWTO. Despite a marginal decline in outbound trips in 2016, tourism expenditure increased in 2016 – a positive sign for the outbound market. French tourists may be taking fewer trips but they are choosing to invest more in each trip.”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst
