Snow season bookings on Airbnb up as Aussies plan winter escapes

July 3, 2020 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Australians are rushing to book local snow getaways in 2020, with new data from Airbnb showing pre-season bookings up on the same time last year.

As resorts begin to open across the country, both Victorian and New South Wales snow regions have seen a surge in bookings, helping valuable tourism dollars to flow to local businesses and hosts across many hard-hit communities.

Domestic bookings made from  1 – 28 June 2020 for snow season travel on Airbnb:

  • Bookings in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains are up 45% compared to the same period in 2019.

  • In Victoria, bookings for the Victorian Snowfields are up 51% compared to the same period in 2019.

Susan Wheeldon, Airbnb’s Country Manager for Australia & New Zealand, said: “It’s fantastic to see Aussies really embracing the chance to explore their own backyard like never before.

“It’s also encouraging to see that after an initial surge in bookings across Australia, people are continuing to be excited about getting out and immersing themselves in all the things that make Australia so great,  including the beautiful alpine regions – all we need now is for the weather gods to cooperate and provide some fresh snowfalls for everyone to enjoy.

“It’s been great to see people getting out there and supporting regional communities that have been hard-hit in recent times.

“To date, the community has been doing the right thing when it comes to public health, for which we’re very grateful, and we urge everyone to make sure they keep following the rules and listening to government advice.”

Guests are advised to check both resort websites and the latest government advice for up-to-date information prior to booking.
