Domestic trips compensate for decrease in tourism in 2021

With an increase of one and a half million domestic trips and a decrease of about nine million trips abroad in 2021 compared to 2019, it is mainly domestic trips that compensate for the decline in tourism in 2021. This is what emerged from new figures of Statbel, the Belgian statistical office.

In 2021, Belgians made about 7 million fewer trips, or a 32% decline compared to 2019. Especially in the first half of 2021, when the tourism sector was also partially closed, the number of trips was half as high (-56%) as two years earlier. In the second half of the year, there was a recovery, although there too a decline of 15% can be seen.
