European Tourism 2021 - Trends & Prospects (Q1/2021)
The latest quarterly travel forecasts for the European region produced for the European Travel Commission (ETC).
Tourism Economics and the European Travel Commission (ETC) jointly produce quarterly travel forecasts for the European region. Our Q1/2021 report analyses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the travel and tourism sector and the wider economic environment and provides an outlook for recovery post COVID-19.
Lockdowns have persisted into 2021 as COVID-19 infection rates surge in some countries despite the vaccination rollout. Prospects for the summer season are mixed. While Europe works to overcome hurdles relating to vaccine side effects and supply shortages, innoculation programmes are still expected to accelerate over the summer, bringing down COVID-19 cases and raising hopes of easing restrictions.
