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.

first_imgThe Angels were expected to arrive at their hotel in Chicago about 1 a.m., local time, on Monday and then play a makeup game against the Cubs at 3 p.m. Then they will fly back to Southern California to open a homestand on Tuesday night. The starting pitchers for the games Monday and Tuesday will be sent ahead so they can rest. “It’s a lot of travel,” Ausmus said, “but in terms of sleep it shouldn’t be too bad.” …The Angels are scheduled to have Canning, Félix Peña and Tyler Skaggs pitch the three games against the Oakland A’s, starting on Tuesday. They are expected to have an opener pitch before Peña. The A’s will start three straight right-handers (Frankie Montas, Daniel Mengden and Mike Fiers), which will follow a stretch in which the Angels saw four lefties in five games.UP NEXTAngels (RHP Trevor Cahill, 2-5, 6.92) at Cubs (LHP Jon Lester, 3-4, 4.59), 1 p.m. PT, Fox Sports West Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros “I always view players as not finished products,” Swanson said. “We are trying to understand some of the limitations of players or how moldable or malleable they are. One of the things I’m aware of is giving our player development guys something they can mold and develop and transform.”ALSOThe Angels will have Cam Bedrosian pitch as an opener in front of Trevor Cahill on Monday, an attempt to get better results out of Cahill. Cahill, who the Angels signed to an $8.5-million deal over the winter, has posted a 6.92 ERA in 11 starts.

The 40-round draft will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday.Swanson wouldn’t tip his hand as to what type of player the Angels prefer with their top pick, and he said it’s difficult to project who will be available anyway.“I think in the end this draft is really balanced between high school and college and pitching and hitting,” Swanson said. “I think that speaks to the amount of work we’re doing trying to prepare for a lot of different outcomes. We’re sort of beholden to the 14 teams picking in front of us.”The two drafts overseen by Swanson have had a theme, at the top at least. Their two first-round picks — Jo Adell in 2017 and Jordyn Adams in 2018 — were both high school outfielders known for their raw athleticism.In general, since Eppler became the general manager the Angels have shown a preference for high upside players, even if they lacked some polish. SEATTLE — When Griffin Canning made his big league debut earlier this season, Angels scouting director Matt Swanson took a day off from draft preparation to fly to Anaheim to be there.“It really was an awesome thing to be a part of,” Swanson said. “Selfishly it’s really cool. From Billy (Eppler) all the way down to the area scouts and crosscheckers, that’s the guy we can point to as the first big leaguer from this group.”The Angels took Canning in the second round of the 2017 draft and he reached the majors less than two years later, becoming the first player to get to the big leagues that was drafted since Eppler became the general manager.Swanson, who was hired as scouting director in August 2016, is about to take his third crack at finding some more major leaguers.
