The average Russian can afford to spend 36,000 rubles during a week of vacation, while a week of ideal vacation was estimated at 135,000 rubles per person, according to the results of a survey conducted by specialists from the SuperJob job search service.
Experts clarify that the women’s vacation budget is less than that of men (32,000 and 40,000 rubles, respectively). Also, young people under 24 can afford to spend an average of 33,000 rubles, while Russians over 45 can spend 40,000 rubles per person. Expectedly, the higher a respondent’s income level, the larger his vacation budget. So, the vacation budget of 27,000 rubles was recorded among Russian respondents with a salary of less than 30 thousand rubles a month and 48,000 rubles among those who earn more than 80 thousand rubles a month.
Besides, it turned out that the average Russian needs 135,000 rubles for a perfect week of vacation. Moreover, men need more money than women (148,000 and 125,000 rubles, respectively), the older generation, more than young people (147,000 rubles and 110,000, respectively), and respondents with a salary of up to 30,000 rubles, more than Russians with an income of 80,000 rubles (110,000 rubles and 163,000 rubles, respectively).
Among the population of million-plus cities, Muscovites can afford the largest budget for a week of vacation (47,000 rubles per person), St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, and Yekaterinburg are in the second place (42,000 rubles each), and Samara is in the third place (38,000 rubles). The lowest real vacation budget was recorded in Volgograd (28,000 rubles per person for a week of vacation).
In addition, it is stated that monetary claims for a week of ideal vacation are highest in Moscow (150,000 rubles), Rostov-on-Don (148,000 rubles), and Krasnoyarsk (145,000 rubles). The most “modest” needs are found in Voronezh (110,000 rubles).
