According to Olivia Grégoire, about “77% of them plan to stay in France for the Christmas holidays”, which benefits “all French territories (…), not just the coasts or the mountains”. “According to the first estimates, the average budget for winter accommodation will be 371 euros per person, which is equivalent to previous years,” she said.

7% increase

About 26% of French people plan to go to the mountains for the Christmas holidays, the minister’s office said. Predictions for booking rentals in the mountains, according to the observatory of mountain resorts, increased by 7%.

“Despite this difficult context, marked by inflation, the French continue to go on vacation and make personal decisions for this, they go to France and consume the French language,” said Olivia Gregoire.

The next six months should confirm the return of international clients with a growing intent to leave for France among clients from the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, as well as Italy, Spain, Japan and the US. Intentions of Germans, Spaniards and Americans to travel to France are up 3% compared to 2021.
