Eating out is an emerging trend all over the world, especially now when eating in front of other people aren’t a taboo anymore. The popularization of this trend is evident from the beginning of the 90s when the economies have gotten stronger, and since it has been growing. There are many forms of eating out, and many locations where food can be consume away from our residence. This paper will be focusing on eating out during a vacation, when people are on holiday away from their home, and their residential city. The goal will be to stress the differences that exist between eating out at our hometown and eating out when in another city (or even more important abroad) on a vacation. To do so, we are going to introduce the reader to the meaning of eating out and the locations where people can dine outside their home, focusing on the locations that are relevant for eating out on holidays. Then we are going to explain the basic behavior of people when consuming food during a vacation, focusing on the choices they make, the time when the food is consumed and so on. At the end we are going to make the difference between eating out on vacation and eating out in our hometown, so we can give some basic instructions to hospitality facilities owners on how to attract more people to dine at their facility.
