Germans are booking holidays again at rates higher than in 2019, before the coronavirus hit, TUI Group, the world’s biggest holiday group, said on Wednesday.

“The summer holiday catch-up is in full swing right now and the consumer mood for travel seems to be increasing daily,” Marek Andryszak, chairman of TUI Germany’s Executive Board, said in a statement.

Since May, bookings have even topped comparative weeks seen in 2019, he added, with demand especially strong for Spain’s Balearic and Canary Islands, as well as Greece and Turkey. [Reuters]
