The major emitting markets have compensated for the drop in overnights recorded early in July and the German market, first by the number of recorded overnights, cumulatively shows a 3% decrease which was compensated by overnights of tourists from Austria and Italy, equaling the last year’s figures. The Netherlands is in fourth place with a 12% drop compared to 2018, while the Slovenian and British market recorded a 9%, i.e. 4% increase compared to last year.
Campsites have the best numbers with 1,259,615 (42%) overnights, however, that is also a 13% decrease compared to 2018. Hotels have recorded 516,235 overnights (17%), which is a 1% drop compared to last year. Private accommodations recorded 638,465 overnights (21%) and an increase of 2%. Tourist resorts reported 360,792 overnights (12%), which is 47% more than in 2018. One of the reasons the increase is the changed Valalta categorization, which has been divided into camping units and site-built facilities that fall in the tourist resort category.
