BELVILLA by OYO: 80% more Easter bookings in Austria

  • Austria, Italy and the Netherlands are popular destinations for Austrian Belvilla guests 
  • 71% of bookings in Austria for the Easter holidays have been done by German travellers 

The Easter holidays are just around the corner and many last-minute travellers are still looking for the perfect destination. Belvilla by OYO has taken a look at the booking figures for the Easter holidays and picked out some inspiration. 

The Easter holidays fall relatively late this year, from April the 1st to 10th. Nevertheless, 64% of Austrian Belvilla guests prefer to spend their holidays in a holiday home in Austria, while 19% travel to Italy and 14% to the Netherlands. The South of France is also a popular Easter destination for Austrians this year with 3% of their bookings.  

Looking at the total amount of Belvilla stays booked for the Easter holidays, Austria is in 4th place after Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Travellers from Germany are the strongest group of guests in Austria at Easter with 70.6% of the total bookings, followed by Belgians with 10.1%. Overall, at this point, Belvilla bookings in Austria have gained a plus of 80% during the Easter holiday versus last year, and 67% in comparison to 2019. 

Skiing during Easter 

Those who want to go skiing in Austria or Italy this Easter break should choose a ski resort that is high up. Especially in Austria, there are many glaciers above 3,000m, which, even with a rather warmer winter like the one we had this year, offer athletes guaranteed snow even at the end of the classic ski season. In Austria, these include 8 glacier ski areas: Mölltal Glacier, Kitzsteinhorn, Dachstein Glacier, Hintertux Glacier, Stubai Glacier, Sölden Glacier Ski area, Kaunertal Glacier, and Pitztal Glacier. In Italy are the glacier ski area Pontedilegno-Tonale, Breuil – Cervinia, Schnals Valley and Stilfserjoch. 

Holidays in the Netherlands 

The Netherlands is especially beautiful at Easter. Tulip blossoms, concerts, and numerous Easter markets await all those who decide to spend Easter in the Netherlands. When the sun awakens nature at Easter, cycling holidays are particularly appealing. Exercising in the fresh air and the first warm rays of sunshine puts guests in a good mood. It is a wonderful opportunity to explore the Netherlands on bike.  

Warming rays of sunshine in Italy 

In Italy during Easter, particularly in April, one can bask in the pleasant warmth of the sun’s rays. Opting for Italy as an Easter destination is a great way to escape the unpredictable weather. April usually experiences a low count of 3 to 8 days of rainfall on average, making it essential to pack swimwear for this vacation.
