EU estimates an increase in tourist bed places

In 2022, the EU had an estimated total of 28.9 million bed places available across 620 000+ tourist accommodation establishments.

Data showed a complete recovery in terms of tourism accommodation offers in 2022.

In comparison with 2020, the number of bed places increased by 3% and the establishments by 4%.

In comparison with 2019 both the number of bed places (+1%; +150 400) and establishments (+1%; +3 600) increased.

Italy and France accounted for slightly more than one-third of the total available capacity, with 5.2 and almost 5.1 million bed places, respectively.

Spain and Germany followed, with 3.8 million (13% of the total) and 3.6 million (12%) bed places.

This information comes from data on tourist accommodation published by Eurostat today.

EU countries continue to fuel intra-EU tourism market

In 2022, the EU registered a total of almost 2.8 billion nights spent in EU tourist accommodations.

Of these domestic tourists spent almost 1.6 billion and international guests spent 1.2 billion.

Data for 2022 show that tourists coming from other EU countries represented 65% of the 1.2 billion nights spent by international guests.

Nights spent by tourists from other European countries represented 22% of the total. It indicates a large increase from the previous year (+5.3 percentage points (pp)).

In 2022 tourists from North America spent 6% of the international nights in EU accommodations.

Guests from Asia represented 4% (+1 pp), Central and South America 2% (+0.8 pp), Africa almost 1% (no change) and Oceania 0.5% (+0.3 pp).

Between 2022 and 2021, the biggest difference in the EU tourism market was that the weight of intra-EU tourism lessened slightly.

Also, the number of tourists from all other regions increased.

In 2021, only 8% of nights spent by international guests were spent by tourists from other world regions outside Europe.

In 2022 that share increased to 13%.

With lifting of travel restrictions, international tourists welcomed the opportunity to visit EU countries, and EU nationals also travelled abroad.
