Hotelbeds, the No.1 Global B2B Bedbank, has announced its roomnight booking growth figures for the summer season during ITB Berlin 2015, one of the world’s leading travel trade shows, taking place between 4-8 March in the German capital.
As global tourism shows signs of strength and optimism reigns in most markets, Hotelbeds is on track to outpace the industry again with an estimated 22% growth for global roomnights sales during the summer period (May-September). The main source markets for Hotelbeds at a global level are the UK, Germany, Spain and the United States.
Bookings into Europe, the Bedbank’s most important region in terms of volume, have increased by 32% in comparison to the same period last year, with the top source markets being the UK, Germany, Spain and Ireland. Spain remains the most important global destination for Hotelbeds this summer, with a 25% growth in bookings in comparison to the same period last year. Spain is followed by the United States and Greece, whose strength as a destination is backed by a solid 54% growth. This proves the eternal attraction of the Mediterranean, with Mallorca, the Algarve, Benidorm and Crete standing out among the top five most demanded destinations globally. The region also boasts growth rates above 30% in countries such as Italy, Greece, Croatia and Malta.
