forecast for 2023 representatives of German travel companies participating in the congress of the German Tourism Association (DRV). While rising energy prices make hotels and planes more expensive, the depreciation of the euro against the dollar creates additional costs, especially on long-haul flights, rising inflation and falling purchasing power are also worries in this sector – the tourism industry has nowhere to go. And he is optimistic.
“2023 is unlikely to be worse than 2022. After the pandemic and many other things, we are no longer afraid of anything in the tourism industry,” said Ralf Schiller, CEO of the German tour operator FTI. Although the tourism sector has not yet reached pre-pandemic levels, he said, this means growth potential in the tourism sector for the next year.
Germans, however, are noticing a change in the trend in bookings at the last minute. Mark Tanz, CEO of DER Tourisitk, noted that this will be the main trend. Although orders for the summer season of 2023 have already begun to arrive, these are rather rare requests caused by low prices.
