Complex research in Hungary: The effect of COVID-19 on the tourist consumer behaviour of the Hungarian population


The research consists of 2 parts, on the one hand a literature review and on the other hand an online questionnaire . The survey ran from late April to early June 2020 and a total number of respondents were 736. Tourism comprises around 10% of the hungarian GDP, therefore it is important to examine the current changes. The experts agreed that, the coronavirus pandemic is not only a crisis, but also a chance.
