It’s been widely reported in the UK that as a result of the goverments “roadmap out of lockdown” being published, several of the budget airlines and some of the tour operators have seen a massive increase in bookings from July onwards, the majority for August and September.
Despite question marks over the return of international travel, the UK’s biggest holiday operator, Tui, said bookings jumped 500% overnight.
EasyJet also reported a 337% surge in flight bookings and a 630% jump in holiday bookings for locations such as Alicante, Malaga, Palmo, Faro and Crete.
All good news for European based hosts, especially those of us here in Spain. We’ve already got a few bookings for July/August, so here’s hoping for a better second half of 2021 than the first!
