“There are activities, the temperature seems to be at the moment, so we are waiting to see the reservation rate. But from what we have been able to observe in the tourist attractions, there are people there, as the adviser of Destination Québec cité, Jenna Dubé, shares.
Increased traffic in the last few days, since the spring was in the western part of the province, suggests good results for the hotel industry.
“Quebec family hotels now have a reservation amount of 80% to 100% on weekends. Less family hotels are between 50% and 70%, said the general manager of the Hotel Association of the Quebec region, Alupa Clarke.
The farm should also deal with new, last-minute reservations.
“It is a new post-pandemic phenomenon. So we can expect today, tomorrow, to expect that there will be continued progress in the authorities,” said Mr Clarke.
The good performance of the region can be explained in particular by the various offers that make it an indispensable winter destination.
“We have a very varied offer for families, both outside and inside, we continue to be the destination of choice year after year,” Ms. Dubé named.
“We have a great situation in terms of events, in terms of places to visit. Also, the green crown is close to all the winter activities,” added Mr. Clarke.
At Village Vacances Valcartier, the reservation book is full.
“We have a full hotel. Bora Parc is sold on almost all the beaches. We have a few places left only in the evening. And, of course, in the most beautiful weather, we have mid-winter games, tube slides, which are also popular this week,” Vice-President of Communications, Marketing and Sales, Sandra Nadeau said.
Complex unemployment is also reaching pre-pandemic levels.
“It’s about 10% to 15% more traffic in all our activities combined.”
Despite the more difficult economic context, many families chose to take refuge in a sunny destination.
“Although the prices have skyrocketed for several weeks, that does not stop the purchase of the trip, because it is necessary to get away from it all,” confirmed the owner of Voyages Aquaterra Levis, Mélanie Guillemette.
This is a late spring break so that the mortgage community can more concretely evaluate the economic spinoffs.
