Campsites, caravans and nature tourism, the holidays that await us this summer

Camping, motorhomes, rural and nature tourism are advertised as safe offers, once the end of the confinement allows movements in tourism, which sees the possibility of recovering part of the summer campaign after the somewhat more optimistic perspectives of the European Commission .

Consultants in the sector calculate that the first to start will be the campsites, caravans and rural tourism, in July the trips will begin and in August the hotels for national tourism will be reactivated with more vigor. It will not be until November, they add, when corporate travel and event tourism are activated, while in December international tourists will begin to arrive and depart.

The European Commission launched a message on Wednesday that seeks to save at least part of the summer season in the EU, where the tourism industry represents around 10% of GDP (in Spain 12.3%), by establishing safe corridors between countries with similar epidemiological situations, within a three-phase plan.

The different agents also agree that customers will demand tourism products with greater flexibility for changes and cancellations, in addition to travel insurance that includes pandemics.

This is how more and more reservation portals and hotel chains are offering it in the face of uncertainty about what can and cannot be done in the near future.
