According to ZF.ro, in the past years, Romanians have been trying to optimize their budget by becoming more careful with Christmas spending. Moreover, in 2014, 44% of Romanians have stated that one of the main resolutions for the upcoming years is managing their private income better, during winter holidays.
How is the Christmas budget divided?
Clothes, beauty products, toys and electronic products, all of these receive about 30% of the monthly income of a Romanian – 50 to 150 euros/individual.
According to TUI Travel Center, this year, Romanians will spend from 300 to 1800 eur/person for a Christmas vacation. The favorite destinations are Romanian cities such as Predeal, Moeciu, Rasnov or Poiana Brasov, or Dominican Republic, Zanzibar, Maldives or Thailand, for exotic destinations.
Food and Christmas decorations
Every year, Romanians spend 50% of their Christmas budget on festive food and decorations. People who like gathering the entire family around a Christmas dinner usually spend 100 – 300 eur/dinner/family.
While you rush for presents for your loved ones, prepare yourself for the unpredictable and choose to invest in your family’s health, as well as in their happiness. An international health insurance plan can be the perfect gift for your entire family, especially if you plan on travelling abroad this winter.
The cost of a health insurance policy can vary from 70 to 2,500 eur/family, and it provides coverage for a great range of medical services, including hospitalization, routine checkups, chronic disease treatment and even organ or marrow transplant. Also, the international health insurance plan can be used all over the world, throughrout the entire year.
