Romanians use around 3 percent of their consumption expenditure on restaurants and hotels, the lowest share in the European Union, according to Eurostat.

In 2017, households in the EU spent 8.8 percent of their total consumption expenditure on restaurants and hotels.

This represents a total expenditure of almost EUR 740 billion, equivalent to 4.8 percent of EU GDP or EUR 1,400 per EU inhabitant.

“In the EU in 2017, the share of household expenditure devoted to “restaurants and hotels” was largest in Malta (20.2 percent), Cyprus (17.5 percent) and Spain (16.8 percent) ahead of Greece (15.4 percent) and Ireland (14.8 percent). At the opposite end of the scale, Romania (3.1 percent), Poland (3.6 percent) and Lithuania (3.7 percent) spent the lowest share of their household expenditure on restaurants and hotels,” Eurostat said.

A recent Eurostat report showed that Romanians use 27.8 percent of their consumption expenditure to buy food and non-alcoholic beverages, the highest share in the EU.
