first_imgInterestingly, the data show that this year those who like to travel mostly avoid last-minute vacations. Compared to the previous year, this type of vacation lost an average of 89,93% of searches. City or city break trips also suffer from a drop in interest due to the pandemic, and record a search loss of 77,85%. Austrians also love to relax. With a growth of 30,68% since the summer of 2019, wellness holidays are the number 2 most popular types of holidays in Austria. Third place went to travel to cultural and other attractions, with a growth of 14,5%. Demand for hotels fell, while demand for holiday homes rose by more than half. Focus on active vacation and wellness “The data from the research show that the Austrians showed the greatest demand for domestic travel, which put Austria as the destination in first place in terms of demand. The great news is that Croatia took second place in terms of demand, which is an excellent result in these circumstances, while Germany took third place. It is also important to note that no other country outside the DACH region has recorded a positive increase in holiday demand as Croatia. “, he pointed out Branimir Tončinić, adding that the demand for hotels in the Austrian market has fallen this year, and the demand for accommodation in holiday homes has increased. The volume of hotel searches decreased among Austrians (-18,07%), while accommodation such as holiday homes, apartments and houseboats increased by 13-26%. Holiday homes are the absolute winners, both in this research and on the Croatian market this year. It’s about the results of an online booking platform survey Travelcircus on changes in the travel habits of tourists due to the coronary virus pandemic from the DACH region, ie Germany, Austria and Switzerland.center_img The interest and demand of Germans, Austrians and Swiss for travel to Croatia in 2020 is at least 50 percent higher than the year before, said the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board in Austria Branimir Tončinić.  According to the results of this research, in 2020, interest in travel to Croatia, Germany, Austria and Switzerland increased, while some countries competing with Croatia also performed worse. Namely, in the entire DACH region, interest in Spain and Italy fell by 10 percent, and only in Austria did the demand for Italy, France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Norway fall by more than 30 percent compared to 2019. Guests from Austria this year were more looking for an active holiday. According to the survey, in June and July 2019, Austrians searched an average of 13.835 times for a combination of an “amusement park” and a tourist destination; and in the summer of 2020, there were 23.040 searches of the same search. This corresponds to a growth of 66,53%, and compared to 2017, an impressive 185,68% growth can be seen. The data clearly speaks of a trend that has been growing for years, and now, at the time of the coronavirus pandemic, it has further jumped out and accelerated development for quality facilities, not just the sun and the sea.

Advocaat has made his mind up about Sunderland future – but will not elaborate

first_img Asked further if he had made a decision over his future, he said: “Yes, I have made a decision. “I don’t like that I don’t want to discuss my own future, you will hear it this way or the other way. Let’s wait and see.” Advocaat is expected to stand down as head coach over the weekend, but opposite number Slaven Bilic urged him to stay as the pair embraced on the final whistle. He said: “I told him to stay, of course I did. “First of all, I feel sorry for all the managers. On the one hand, it’s a great job – we wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t – but on the other hand, the pressure that all the managers are under, it’s enormous, media, agents, fans board, everything, so firstly I have sympathy. “And secondly I know Dick and I’m a big admirer. If he goes, the Premier league would miss him. He is a man of knowledge, experience, six international teams – this is unbelievable – so that’s what I told him. “I would really like him to stay because I saw him on the touchline with me and he is full of energy. It would be a shame if he goes, and I really hope that he stays.” Advocaat was moved to tears as his side, who went into the game without a league win in their opening seven games of the season, raced into a 2-0 lead through Steven Fletcher and Jeremain Lens, who was later sent off for a second bookable offence. Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat has revealed he has made a decision over his future – but refused to say what it is. But Carl Jenkinson pulled one back in first-half stoppage time and, after Lens’ departure, Dimitri Payet snatched a point. Advocaat said: “The way we played today was very, very positive for everybody. There was not a player who was not in the game. “We showed the commitment that you need in football defensively, but also when we had the ball. It was a joy to watch from the side and also for the crowd. “Overall, I am very proud of what they showed today, the commitment was really great.” Bilic was pleased with the Hammers’ fightback, but bemoaned their first-half frailty. He said: “When you are 2-0 down with them having to chances to score the third one, to be fair you have got to be happy with a point. “But on the other hand, we can’t afford to make those kind of mistakes or sloppy starts or whatever, especially here in the Premier League.” The 68-year-old attended his pre-match press conference after Saturday’s 2-2 Barclays Premier League draw with West Ham at the Stadium of Light, which was played out amid speculation that it was his final game in charge. However, asked if he could confirm he would still be in post beyond this weekend, he replied: “No, I can’t say that.” Press Associationlast_img read more
