Tourism: the favorite destinations of the French for this summer

According to the Orchestra-Amadeus-Travel companies barometer, bookings are up 7% overall for this summer, and some destinations are experiencing surprising growth.

The summer transhumance promises to be dense. According to the Orchestra-Amadeus-Travel companies barometer consulted by Le Figaroand which is based on the use of customer data, the French intend to travel this year, and more than last year.

Reservations are progressing above all in mainland France, with 8% more reservations compared to 2018. A situation similar to the January-April period, when the number of trips to France increased by 19%, and by 9% in volume of business. The excellent snow cover of the ski resorts had already contributed to encouraging travelers to rediscover the national soil. The only losers this summer were French overseas destinations: the West Indies lost 4% of passengers, Reunion also, and Polynesia is about to see the number of French tourists drop by 3%.

Egypt and Tanzania attract the French

As far as the “near” foreigner is concerned, the French seem to be very slightly tired of Europe. For medium-haul, Spain remains the main destination, even if it loses 4%. Behind her, Greece (-2%) and Italy (-13%). Tunisia, fourth, made a leap in the hearts of the French since it recorded a 55% increase in travel. But the strongest increases concern Turkey, 7th with 64% more tourists, and Egypt (8th, +61%), thanks to the country’s gradually regaining stability and despite the heat to be expected. Note, Russia, tenth destination for the French, up 37%, just behind Croatia. The two countries replace Germany and the United Kingdom in the top ten.

As for more distant countries, the United States and Canada remain the leading destinations, slightly increasing their number of reservations (1% and 3%). The Dominican Republic and Mauritius, even if they are not specifically summer destinations, are progressing spectacularly (respectively 20, 28% increase) and settle at the top of the ranking. Mexico jumped 55% and ranked eighth long-haul destination. The strongest increase, however, concerns Tanzania (135% increase), quite simply “fashionable”.
