RTT: The number of bookings has been growing for the last 12 days in a row

first_imgImagine that eVisitor is open to companies like Rentlio and other IT companies, which could, thanks to open data, give much better and broader projections of the real situation on the market and much more. This is certainly a concrete example of the digitalization of our tourism, ie the direction in which we must develop. At the beginning of the crisis or when the whole coronavirus situation escalated sometime in mid-March, the index was 0,10 or 0,15, while on 23.05. The RTT index was 0.94. In the last 12 days, the RTT index has been constantly above 1.0, which is clearly seen in the chart. However, RTT data tell us that the market has woken up and that bookings are constantly in the red, although of course much less than last year, which is a positive signal from the market. As borders within the EU have opened up relatively, RTT is only expected to grow from week to week. Rentlio Trend Tracker (RTT) shows the ratio between new and canceled bookings at the day level. A Rentlio Trend Tracker value greater than 1 is a positive signal, which specifically means that guests book more new appointments than cancel existing bookings. For the last 12 days in a row, RTT has been telling us that guests are booking more new appointments than canceling existing bookings, and we are no longer talking about a recovery trend but about the fact that we have entered a phase of increasing demand.center_img Of course, one should still be aware that 30% of traffic is expected at the level of last year this year, although some destinations could be slightly above that average, such as Istria and Kvarner. Official data for last weekend show that 115 thousand tourists stayed in Croatia, or about 20 percent of tourists compared to the same time last year. As we wrote, the Zadar IT company Rentlio, which has developed an application for the automation of the entire business of smaller tourist facilities – apartments, small hotels, hostels, has published an extremely useful tool – Rentlio Trend Tracker which gives us an insight into the recovery trend of the tourism market, and which is based on live data of more than 7 thousand accommodation units managed through Rentlio. You can follow the status of reservations through Rentlio Trend Tracker from minute to minute HERElast_img read more
