26.4.2017 - Czechs are travelling more and more to foreign countries. The number of longer trips exceeding four nights increased by 70 thousand last year compared with 2015. Overall, Czechs crossed the border 4.3 million times. After a one-year break, Croatia was once again the number one destination last year. Croatia was more popular than Slovakia, where interest dropped by one third compared to 2015, the historically strongest year. In the majority of countries, we will spend less on our vacation than in the previous year. This year, however, we will only pay less for shopping in Bulgaria, Turkey and Hungary. The most expensive among popular destinations are Austria and France according to an analysis of Czech vacations made by UniCredit Bank.

Results

UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia achieved excellent business results in the first half of 2016. Consolidated net profit grew by 11.9% yoy to CZK 3.5 billion

Comments of Jiří Kunert, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia:
"Despite the increased costs to the Resolution Fund and the Deposit Insurance Fund, we have achieved a twelve percent growth in consolidated net profit. This major increase in net profit was due to both the steadily increasing volumes of retail and corporate loans as well as the return on the international transaction – acquisition of Visa Europe, where our bank had a shareholding. We manage to successfully implement the set strategy across all segments and we are creating a strong position for further growth on both markets. UniCredit Bank enjoys high levels of trust among its clients, in the times when banks all around Europe are under pressure from increasing regulation, maintaining profitability or events such as Brexit."
