The number of bookings at commercial accommodations in Hungary for September and October is "well over" the number in the same period a year earlier and suggests fourth-quarter guest nights could exceed levels in 2019, before the pandemic, state news wire MTI reports citing an analysis by bookings site Szallas.hu.
Szallas.hu noted that revenue per available room on its bookings rose 57% in the second quarter from the same period in 2019. During that period, reservation numbers rose 15%, while the number of guests climbed 13%, it added.
In the third quarter, long weekends are giving the sector a boost, but the lack of Russian guests, the tight labor market, and bad weather have weighed, Szallas.hu spokesperson Lili Kelemen said.
