Countless cancellations, decreasing in Bookings, strict hygiene rules - the Coronavirus crisis is having a strong impact on the Short-Term Rental market.

More than ever, we will have to learn to live with the virus and adapt to this exceptional situation. How can we do this?

Urban Tourism is particularly affected


As global air traffic is at a standstill and many borders remain closed, Asian, Russian and American customers, who usually flock to the capital, are now noticeably absent.

Business travel has also drastically reduced due to the cancellation of trade fairs and events. The timid resumption of activity, marked by health uncertainties, does not allow sufficient attendance at most locations at the present time. As for local tourism, after several months of confinement, French people have escaped to the countryside or the coast, which is another blow for the Parisian Tourist Market.


Tourism "made in France"


But Paris remains Paris, and its exceptional cultural heritage still make it a must-visit Destination. During the summer, French people have relied more on seaside resorts and country vacation spots, so this All Saints' Day period and the end-of-year holidays should be favourable to Ile-de-France Tourism.

Now is the time to discover Paris and its monuments without the usual flow of tourists. With no more endless queues, crowded museum rooms, overcrowded streets and transport, the conditions are perfect to enjoy Parisian life in peace. Go to admire the Mona Lisa at your leisure at the Louvre or visit the Eiffel Tower without the crowd. There are so many good reasons for Travellers to come and explore the capital in a privileged way! Make them want to visit with a personalized City Guide that you can create with Yaago. Include your recommendations and the best Spots for a memorable experience in the heart of the City of Light.
