But travel and holidays industry would be one the most affected industry by the financial crisis because leisure is the last priority when people have to overcome economic problems. This downturn might negatively affect the business.
Fears about the crisis
Only-Apartments, a leading company in online rental apartments in Madrid, were one of the thousands booking companies that had to face with the possibility of bankruptcy. They assume their revenues will decrease due to the financial crisis: the less people travel, the less reservations they get.
But surprisingly, and despite the crisis, Only- Apartments increases its sales in 15% since the beginning of the year. Where does the secret hide? Probably this important increase is due to the high cost of the hotel rooms. Right now, the travellers are looking the lowest prices, without sacrificing the quality, for their accommodation.
Facts about the crisis
Hotels are always more expensive than apartments. In addition, they have smaller rooms, so families usually have to book more than one room and the price shoots up. The travellers want to save their money, and since the beginning of the crisis, many people used to rent apartments together. “Share a vacation house with other people is a great idea to save money” declares Anne Smith, an English tourist that spends her holydays in
Madrid using this method.
