European, International travel fair The ongoing Brussels shows the trend of Belgians to spend more this summer on vacation, but choose to travel by self-driving car instead of flying, to go on vacation to nearby countries, instead of going far. As for cheap backpacking tourism (backpacking), it is considered impossible to recover this year.

The Brussels tourism fair was held again after 2 years of the pandemic. After two years of travel restrictions, 80% of Belgians confirmed that this summer they will definitely have to travel for a long time. Money is not a big deal, two years have not had the opportunity to spend money on travel. However, that is not why luxury resorts are of great interest. Large yachts are rarely asked, many people are still terrified of the luxury ship with 3,700 tourists being rejected, no country wants to let it dock just because someone on the ship has the virus.

Magdalena Kowalska said: “I want to make sure that the pandemic is over, there are no unexpected risks, then I think about going out.”

This year’s summer travel trend is near countries. 10 people, up to 7 want to go on vacation to a place where they can drive themselves, which is only a few thousand kilometers. Of course, European travel agencies still open tours to most Asian tourist destinations, but many people are still afraid, because it is not clear how to go to the place to be tested for isolation. Another obstacle is that now there are not as many routes to Asia as before.

Ms. Nele Degryse – Tourism Director of TUI Group shared: “I’m sure people want to go to Asia again, but not this year, or at least this summer. Thailand and Vietnam have begun to open, but there are still few registrations. I hope that starting this winter, the demand for traveling to Asia will increase.”

The European tourism market recovered gradually, but slowly. European travel agencies have not yet dared to offer many products, have not offered many tours to go far, because they cannot anticipate fluctuations in fuel costs, wars upset flight routes, or fear of distant countries. suddenly changed regulations on epidemic prevention. This year’s fair introduces about 250 destinations, less than before, and the form of resort is not as rich as before.
