But the rise of the Covid-19 , which has led to the establishment of a curfew since Friday evening in many large metropolitan areas in France is fueling uncertainty and despite everything shaking up the plans of many French people.

Last minute and less frequentation

A phenomenon which results first and foremost in last minute bookings which deprive professionals of visibility.

  Greater Manchester leaders told 'door is open' for further talks on Tier 3 support Local leaders in Greater Manchester have been told that the "door is open" for further talks, despite the prime minister imposing Tier 3 coronavirus restrictions on the region. Boris Johnson announced that tougher COVID-19 restrictions will be introduced in Greater Manchester from Friday.Moving into Tier 3 means pubs and bars in Greater Manchester will be closed, unless they serve substantial meals, while betting shops, casinos, bingo halls, adult gaming centres and soft play areas will also shut.

COVID-19 cases may well increase again. Aggressive “social distancing” measures implemented in the entire country included canceling sporting events and shuttering theaters. Deep commitment to collective action. How feasible these kinds of stringent measures are in other countries is debatable.

"The trend is quite catastrophic for urban tourism, and having a curfew does not help matters", confirms Didier Arino, director of the specialist firm Protourism.

Beyond Paris and its region, "there is also an impact for metropolises which tended not to fare too badly this year, such as those of Aix-Marseille or Montpellier", observes Didier Arino .

Brittany and Normandy acclaimed

Can rural tourism benefit from the situation? Dynamic during the summer, it "does not represent large volumes at this time of year," recalls Didier Arino. But coastal areas should be popular with city dwellers wanting to escape the curfew, such as Normandy or Brittany for example.

In the field, the professionals show a little "thrill" for All Saints' Day.

The owner of the two-star Le Chantilly hotel in Deauville, Rachid Oumakhlouf, estimates the decline at 10 to 15%, with the proximity of the capital helping. But "before the holidays, October was very difficult," he explains.
