The situation in travel agencies is improving
More countries are lifting pandemic restrictions. As a result, Poles are more willing to go on holiday, and travel agencies are recording increased sales.
Sales are going very well for Coral Travel Poland, which specialises in Turkey. It is already at the same level as in 2019. In turn, Rainbow sold by the end of January almost 50 percent more bookings than a year ago. The upcoming holiday season also looks very good for Itaka, which reported a 130 per cent increase in sales compared to last year.
However, the situation is not so good everywhere. Radosław Damasiewicz, president of Travelplanet.pl, says that compared to the record-breaking 2019 for the travel industry, pre-sales for summer 2022 are down by around half. Factors limiting Poles from buying include inflation, the geopolitical situation or pandemic restrictions.
