A study by SEB bank about the money-saving habits of the Baltic youth also revealed that 60 percent of young Estonians plan to spend at least a year abroad.

According to the study, 75 percent of young people in Estonia put money aside for travel or real estate.

Majority of the polled 18 to 21-year-olds save to go to foreign countries, with 61 percent saying they plan to spend at least a year away from Estonia - 24 percent to study, 12 percent to work and 64 percent to travel or volunteer.

The 22 to 25-year-olds are more likely to save up for a home. It is also noteworthy that whereas their Latvian and Lithuanian peers opt for renting a house or a flat, Estonians are much more set on buying.
