(ANSA) - Rome, August 24 - Tourism has dropped by as much
as 50% since 2010, the association of Italian tour agencies said
Friday.
A drop in families' disposable income as well as concerns
about instability in some Mediterranean countries has
dramatically slashed spending on vacations, says
Assoviaggi-Confesercenti, the trade group which represents
travel agencies in Europe.
To date this year, bookings are down 30%, marking the third
consecutive year of declines, says the organization.
"Since 2010, we've lost 50% of business turnover," said
Amalio Guerra, president of Assoviaggi.
He noted more and more Italians are waiting until the last
minute to book a vacation, in the hope of finding a better deal.
The effect of do-it-yourself vacations can also be seen in
the drop in agencies' business.
