After a bad winter season, short-term and early travel bookings are rising again in Germany, said a market analysis published by Travel Data + Analytics (TDA) on Tuesday. In April, short-term vacation bookings with May and June departures already accounted for 22 percent of monthly sales, up seven percentage points from March, according to the TDA.

"Many German citizens wait on packed suitcases, so to speak, and take hold of them as soon as travel options and freedom beckon," the TDA noted, adding that bookings "immediately skyrocketed" when COVID-19 travel warnings for countries were lifted.

Early bookings in Germany account for a "high share of sales," the TDA noted. More than one in three Germans have already booked for next winter or even later dates, an increase of 17 percentage points compared to April 2019.

Revenues from travel bookings in Germany are "increasing from week to week," according to the TDA. In the third week of May, sales even exceeded booking figures from before the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019.
