Although this figure is significantly higher than in 2020 (1.5 million outgoing) and in 2021 (3 million outgoing), it is still 1.8% lower than in 2019, a year before the outbreak of the corona pandemic and a record year for the number of Israelis travelling overseas.

Original data

Israeli tourism post corona Now that all corona restrictions have been lifted and the skies have opened up completely, Israelis are very keen to go on vacations and trips and are scrambling to book vacations to various destinations in Israel and around the world. In the last nine months of 2022, Israelis preferred to fly to any destination available because of the lockdowns. We are still not sure if this year is typical or simply a blip in tourism.

Israeli tourism post corona Because of the high demand and the prices, Israelis are already booking vacations for the summer of 2023. “With the decline of the coronavirus, Israelis are returning to booking early. We are already seeing an increase in demand for the summer months of 2023.”

Israeli tourism post corona The return of the travel agent: Israeli tourism companies have been experiencing difficulties recruiting travel agents because of the significant growth in demand and the general shortage of manpower in the tourism industry. Since corona, Israelis are showing a clear preference for booking through a travel agent, and this trend will most likely continue in 2023.

Tourism for traditionalists Israel is a very diverse country and the number of traditionalists is increasing. This group is not necessarily religious, but rather traditionalist, embracing tradition in its day-to-day life. It is an attractive market with huge consumer potential. Graiver has identified this demographic as suitable and having the means for vacationing at Center Parcs.

Graiver, Market Research. The data is correct for 2022.

A change in how Israelis spend their time in resort villages We are seeing a change in the way Israelis vacation. More and more Israelis prefer to stay in the village and enjoy the amenities and attractions that the village provides. We encourage this trend.

A new market: Vacationing outside usual holiday periods

Since corona, we are seeing a change in when Israelis vacation. Israeli families are now going on vacation not only during usual holiday times or during school holidays. Graiver plans to expand the market and will launch a campaign to market Center Parcs 365 days a year.

Our competitors In the last few years and especially since corona, we have seen an increase in demand by Israelis for vacations in Airbnb, holiday villages, and B&Bs. In light of this, tour operators in Israel and around the world are investing more and more in these products, as are our competitors for holiday village and apartment brands, for example, in Holland: Landal, EuroParcs (Droomparken), Roompot. This is why Graiver is increasing exposure of the brand on social media and investing heavily in marketing the product.

Summary of activities for 2023 Always on: Managing massive digital campaigns on Google, Facebook, and Instagram, both organic and sponsored. Organic and sponsored promotion of the Israeli Center Parcs website. Monitoring chatter on social networks and providing proper responses to questions and discussions about Center Parcs.
