On the occasion of this year's long Pentecost weekend, the number of bookings increased by 15% compared to 2019, while the number of guest nights increased by 21%, according to szallas.hu data.
Guests paid an average of 38% more per person per night than in 2019, and the total gross value of bookings placed on the portal increased 67%.
"This can only be partly explained by the price increase, as the need for a larger number of people, a longer stay with a holiday and a higher standard also increase the value of the basket, which also had a positive effect on the total value of bookings," said József Szigetvári, CEO of Szállás Group.
