British tourists return to the Algarve

albufeirabeachPessimism regarding the impact of Brexit on Algarve tourism may be premature, despite a a 6-8% fall in numbers in the past two years.

Since the start of 2019, occupancy rates and hotel revenues have shown a positive balance as the region’s tourism sector prepares for another summer season.

The United Kingdom government’s bungled exit from the European Union, still in political turmoil due to the lack of an agreement, has been postponed from March 29 this year, to October 31.

The British, the main tourist market for the region, is showing ‘good indicators’ this year, according to data from the Algarve Association of Hotels and Tourist Enterprises.

The latest tourist count at the region’s hotels show a rise of 6% in the number of Brits visiting the region during May.

What is this ? A kind of a "box contest" between frustrated ladies ? Or another outbreak of "kindergarten behaviour" ?

................................................
Only the other week we hear of a keen British runner on holiday in the Algarve getting assaulted and robbed; his leg broken by local thugs and his wife separated from him for hours at risk of rape. No news at all in Portugal, a non-event to protect Algarve tourism - but a news item back in the UK as he is planning to hobble round a charity fund raiser walk on crutches. Don't laugh but apparently Portugal is also in the EU?

Daphne,
Could you please confirm which paper you read the above story.
You see Daphne, we get a lot of people who write sensational stories in their comments and it's only right and fair to clear this up.

We can only assume that Daphne has a wild imagination, to put it politely. Google does not reveal any such story. Most ADN readers will by now know what to expect from this commenter, wild and fantastic stories and hatred towards Portugal and it's citizens.

According to the association’s figures, the British market has risen six percent on last May, while overall revenue “remains unchanged”.


AHETA also revealed that since the start of 2019, “room occupation rates have registered an average increase of 1.1 percent and sales volume an increase of 3.5 percent”, compared to the same period of 2018.

There should be a questionnaire issued by Tourism for Britain to tourists returning from holidaying in Portugal. With transparent comment published. So we get an idea of the percentage of British tourists returning robbed, cheated and over charged, damaged or worst of all as the McCann parents will testify - in grief at missing one of their party.
