International Bookings Recovery Index

International share of bookings increased in all regions in January despite Omicron setbacks. For Europe, the UK, Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand, shares of international bookings were the highest they’ve been throughout the pandemic due to relaxed restrictions and promises of imminent border reopenings. As we head into the spring and summer of 2022, we predict that international bookings will reach pre-pandemic levels, barring severe societal impacts of possible new variants.

Sector Traffic Recovery Index

Global traffic recovery took a nosedive in January for all sectors except car rental as travelers shied away from booking due to Omicron uncertainty. Although car rental demand is still outpacing supply for most major companies, fleets are becoming larger and rates are normalizing again, signaling continued success for the industry overall. As consumers start to book more international vacations, we expect air travel, vacation rental, and hotel sectors to pick up momentum, too.

Sector Traffic Recovery Index
Traffic recovery compared to 2019 slowed for all industries except cruise. Traffic to the top cruise sites was still down 30% compared to 2019, but that performance was better than August (-36%). Slowdown for all industries is due to concerns about the Delta variant as well as the end of the summer holiday season
