Domestic Tourism Why Support Matters

The power of travel is still on in the post-covid 19 era as domestic tourism is expected to be an important way to support the industry of travel and leisure. European countries choose to boost their economies to offset the blow to tourism, while domestic bookings rose significantly in China, Australia, the Netherlands and Denmark. At the time when in Italy "Vacanze in Italia" (Holidays in Italy) is gaining ground, 90% of Greeks choose Greece for their holidays. Therefore, villa rentals can be an alternative holiday option for families or groups of families that promise a very practical benefit: by spreading the cost of a holiday over many heads, you can really save your vacation.

The travel restrictions have affected the tourism industry of most countries while for companies and regions dependent on industry, time is pressing. Greek tourist businesses are turning to domestic tourism as a way to recover from the economic damage caused by pandemic outbreak. Attractive holiday packages are made their appearance as more and more companies in Greece focus on domestic tourism which could make up for summer losses.

Famous holiday destinations such as Crete, Mykonos, Santorini, and Corfu are hard to resist not only to international visitors but also for the Greek population that will opt to travel within the country’s borders. And since local individuals and families favor independent travel over packaged tours, a large holiday villa comes into play: with the amenities and space for even large groups of holidaymakers, these accommodation options will give you the efficiency of hotels with the intimacy, comfort, and  safety that only private rentals can offer.

There are obvious benefits if – compared to the international average- Greeks holidaymakers will deal effectively with the pandemic, that is just another challenge we need to overcome, as we have done it in the past crisis. Domestic tourism, especially at this time, is oxygen for boosting the tourism the activity of holiday destinations and enabling holidaymakers to take vacations in their countries, with the efforts to restore normality and the ability to  tourism, with a focus on domestic tourism in the first place

Greece, whose economy relies heavily on tourism, reopened cafes and restaurants Monday under new social distancing guidelines.

Greece has reported fewer than 3,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 — one of the lowest numbers in the European Union, but a decline in the number of holidaymakers would be difficult for the country to cope with since Greece with its 6000 islands is dependent on tourism.

The front-runner of countries dependent on tourism is . In 2018, tourism accounted for as much as 20.6 percent of the country's GDP, and 30 million tourists are said to have visited the country that year. On average, every visitor spends 607 euros on their holiday in Greece. It is to be expected that this year only a fraction of this amount per visitor will remain in the country.
