Rapid Increase in French Tourists to Portugal: GlobalData

Tourism from France to Portugal is booming, with annual visits increasing from 1.2 million in 2013 to 1.5 million in 2017, and projected to hit two million by 2022, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

The company’s latest report titled Tourism Source Market Insights: France, states that Portugal will remain one of the fastest growing destinations for French tourists globally, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 6.1 percent between 2017 and 2022. In Europe, only Malta will see a higher rate of growth for French visitors over the same period.

Konstantina Boutsioukou, travel and tourism analyst, GlobalData, commented, “Portugal has been experiencing a tourist boom in recent years as more and more tourists are recognising the unique offerings of the smaller nation of the Iberian Peninsula.”
