So where are Poles most likely to go on such a trip between the beginning of December 2023 and the end of February 2024? eSky.pl analysts have developed a list of such places.

The most expensive and cheapest destinations
What are the winter air ticket prices like this year? We buy the most expensive tickets to Tokyo (PLN 5,000 per person round-trip), and the cheapest to Agadir in Morocco – PLN 750 for the round trip.
– Due to the fact that the average number of sunny days there is not below 25, and the lowest daytime temperature is at least 20 degrees, a trip to Agadir will be successful at any time of the year. Especially now, when the lack of heat allows for more or less active rest during the day and discovering the charms of Morocco after dusk for night life enthusiasts – explains Deniz Rymkiewicz.
Interestingly, Poles make reservations for this special period up to five months in advance.
– Moving away from booking travel at the last minute is a very clear trend that we have been observing in the industry since 2021. Our research confirms that the number of people organizing trips less than 4 weeks in advance is decreasing every year – the percentage of such people in Poland decreased by 2 percentage points compared to 2022, while as many as 79% choose trips planned at least a month in advance. .
