The French therefore continue to love outdoor holidays. According to Nicolas Dayot, interviewed by our colleagues from franceinfo, expect “a record summer” for camping in France. “We are 21% more reservations in 2022” compared to the same time last year, he said.
According to Nicolas Dayot, “the Open Air Hotel Observatory tells us that to date, compared to June 2021, we are at 21% more reservations in 2022, while 2021 was almost at the level of 2019. Which indicates, in all likelihood, that we should be heading for a record summer and perhaps even exceed 130 million global overnight stays for 2022, which we have never done since the history of camping » .
He adds: “In a normal year, we welcome around 23 million people to French campsites. We welcome two-thirds of French people and a third of so-called “local” Europeans, mainly Northern Europeans”.
