40 percent of operators are reportedly full for the May national holiday
The tourism sector in Drenthe is doing slightly better, according to research by Marketing Drenthe. Bookings are picking up considerably; but are still below the level of last summer, reports RTV Noord.
4 out of 10 entrepreneurs are reportedly full during the May holiday, with many holiday-homes are fully booked, while hotels forseeing low occupancy.
There is also still room at campsites, which are likely to get busier again during the Ascension and Whitsun holidays, whilst the summer is also looking good for operators.
Less positivity around Coronavirus regulations and support
Support for the Coronavirus regulations among tourism entrepreneurs has declined further. Half a year ago, 60 percent supported the policy, now it is just under 40 percent.
Almost half think that too little is being done for the sector, whilst hotel, group accommodation and day recreation operators all feel let down. These businesses are also the most concerned about a possible bankruptcy and whether all staff can stay employed.
