Hotels and destinations need to overcome the initial shock of the Covid-19 pandemic and it’s repercussions, and quickly understand the new environment within which they will need to operate. An environment with almost zero bookings, a crashed demand, increased operational costs, health & safety protocols and procedures, closed borders, different sentiments amongst people, different needs and a shortened season that will most probably become less that 80 days and mostly domestic-oriented.
July will be probably be the most important month for the Greek 2020 season. Those who choose to visit, will almost immediately start communicating their experience. Friends, relatives, co-workers will start asking if the destinations are trustworthy.
