But have you just arrived and are you staying a week, or maybe even longer? Then it is wise to change the plans. “It is not good to stay there for so long.”
The ANVR has no insight into how many people there are now. “That is difficult, with such a popular city. There are so many people passing through, or they go there on their own.” Oostdam expects that ‘across the board’ there will be fewer Dutch tourists than usual.
“But it will certainly be about a few thousand Dutch people.”
‘You can continue traveling’
Travel organization TUI will make an inventory of how many people are currently on a city trip in Barcelona. It is not yet known how many people are involved, says a spokeswoman for TUI.
She also emphasizes that the travel advice only applies to the city of Barcelona and not to the nearby airport. People who have booked a holiday elsewhere in Spain can land at the airport near Barcelona and then continue traveling, the spokeswoman said.
