Behind China’s Cloud is a Sunny Sky
A report on the Spring 2022 Chinese Traveler Sentiment Report
The sunny sky behind the cloudy sky is what international leisure travel marketers to China point out in a new report—the Spring 2022 Chinese Traveler Sentiment by Dragon Trail International, the global marketing and promotion company based in China and the UK. ForwardKeys joined in furnishing the survey with additional insights that were mostly focused on domestic travel in China. The Sentiment Report is the fifth edition of the product. The last report was a little more than six months ago. Some of the findings of both are paired in some charts or tables in order to illustrate differences.
Discussing the Sentiment Report In a webinar, Sienna Parulis-Cook, Dragon Trail’s director of marketing and communications, said that its team of surveyors “asked about overall travel sentiment, opinions on China’s quarantine-on-arrival policy, appraisal of outbound destinations, domestic travel trends, and more.”
“Although feelings of caution and hesitancy surrounding travel have risen during this period of outbreaks and lockdowns around China,” she added, “there has also been an increase in those who say they are eager to travel. At the same time, we’ve observed softening attitudes towards quarantine policies, and improved perceptions of travel safety for every single country included in our survey.”
The Basics, or Why It’s So Challenging Right Now. Not necessarily in any particular order, they are:
● Outbound group and package tours have now been banned for more than two years (since January 2020).
● Outbound travel for non-essential reasons has been repeatedly discouraged.
● New passports are not being issued except for essential travel reasons.
● Flight tickets are far more expensive than ever.
● Flights are limited in number, and flights are often canceled.
● China’s COVID-driven shutdowns and other restrictive steps remain.
● Some major cities in China are taking small steps to reduce the number of days that arriving/returning air passengers must spend in quarantine.
● Domestic air travel has been active—active enough that airports and airlines would not require much of an adaptation period to get back to flying.
● Since late last November, a number of Asia-Pacific nations have opened partially opened up for travel. They include Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, Malaysia, Cambodia, Indonesia, India, Singapore, Thailand and Australia. (Info from ForwardKeys)

Note on methodology. The Spring 2022 Chinese Traveler Sentiment Report by Dragon Trail Research involved 1,011 survey responses from mainland Chinese. The survey was conducted via Tencent on March 9-14, 2022. All survey respondents have an interest in traveling, with 24 percent having outbound travel experience. They come from 49 first-tier, new first-tier, and second-tier cities. By age group, 16 percent are Post 00s; 35 percent are Post-90s; 29 percent are Post 80s; 15 percent are Post 70s; 5 percent are post 60s and older.
German Long-Haul Recovery Under Way
Not since the dark days of the global pandemic set itself in place in March 2020 has the outlook for inbound travel to the USA from Germany been so encouraging. Reporting on monthly travel agency sales released by, the travel trade publication fvw l TravelTalk noted that sales continue to grow in April, according to the monthly report of the ta.ts travel agency mirror (tats = Travel Agency Technologies & Services): “The tourism business is recovering noticeably. This shows (in) the sales development in April. The gap in sales compared to the pre-corona year 2019 is also getting smaller and smaller, as the current tats travel agency mirror shows.”
Because the tats travel agency mirror is a retail tool, its survey of retail travel agencies measures the immediacy of the travel industry’s sales—not projected activity by wholesalers. This year, it has shown continued industry sales year-on-year.
But it’s not just travel agency sales that are making the tourism industry in Germany breathe easier; it is the ancillary activity of the industry. Tour operators have been staging road show educational sessions and—as are other economic sectors—scrambling to fill job slots.
Another sign that the health of the industry is coming back came was the announcement by TUI (the largest tour operator in Germany and Europe) that the company has started paying back the €700 million ($740 million) which was loaned mainly by KfW. (It is part of the KfW Bankengruppe, a German state-owned investment and development bank.) TUI said the “rescue umbrella” was important during the pandemic but that now was “the right time to reduce the first credit lines.”
As well, other German tour operators have taken steps to add to, or reorganize and/or increase sales staff. And at the industry’s largest international marketplace, IPW, which takes place June 4-8, Germany has one of the largest delegation of buyers scheduled to attend.
And then, as far as the U.S. overseas international travel market is concerned, there is level of business that is already sending German travelers to the USA. In the latest report from the U.S. National Travel and Tourism Office, German arrivals to the United States totaled 78 thousand in March. Only the UK attracted more arrivals. The number would be considered weak in a normal year, but remember: we are still in a recovery mode.
From tats: Current Key Figures from the Travel Industry in Comparison, April 2022 vs 2021 & 2019
While the initial stages of the current recovery show that 2022 business is still running behind the business level of 2019 (which was a record for a majority if NTTO’s Top 20 Overseas Source Markets), the tats mirror are encouraging to industry analysts who realize that recovery won’t occur quickly.

US Travel & Tourism Should Cheer Itself
Yes, we’re patriots.
And so, last week, we in the travel and tourism industry celebrated who we are and what we do along with some professional hubris, because no industry presents events and human experiences like we do—including everything from the double-blink our eyes give off by the life-like creatures who frighten us in a new Disney or Universal Studios ride, to the humbling majesty of the Coastal Redwood trees of California.
And all the while we are presenting and marketing the attractions and actions of the tourism product to international visitors, we are also doing something with direct benefit to the U.S. economy: we are selling tourism to the USA at a better rate and better levels than other nations are marketing their tourism product to U.S. travelers.
How patriotic is that!
To underscore the point, INBOUND this week brings your attention to key data points recently released by the U.S. National Travel & Tourism Office (NTTO) that go beyond the international arrivals numbers that INBOUND usually features. Data recently released by NTTO show that in March 2022:
● International visitors spent $10.1 billion on travel to, and tourism-related activities within, the United States, an increase of 90 percent compared to March 2021.
● Americans spent $9.2 billion traveling abroad, yielding a balance of trade surplus of $894 million for the month—the fifth consecutive month during which the United States enjoyed a balance of trade surplus for travel and tourism.
● The increase in ‘Travel Spending’ accounted for the overwhelming majority (75 percent) of the year-over-year increase in U.S. travel exports in March 2022, followed by ‘Passenger Fare Receipts’ (21 percent) and ‘Medical/Education/Short-Term and Seasonal Workers Spending’ (4 percent).
Composition of Monthly Spending (Travel Exports)—Travel Receipts
—Purchases of travel and tourism-related goods and services by international visitors traveling in the United States totaled $5.0 billion in March 2022 (compared to $1.4 billion in March 2021), an increase of 251 percent when compared to the previous year.
—For a pre-pandemic perspective, travel receipts totaled $12.1 billion in March 2019. These goods and services include food, lodging, recreation, gifts, entertainment, local transportation in the United States, and other items incidental to foreign travel.
Travel receipts accounted for 50 percent of total U.S. travel and tourism exports in March 2022.
Passenger Fare Receipts
—Fares received by U.S. carriers from international visitors totaled nearly $1.7 billion in March 2022 (compared to $662 million in March 2021), an increase of 153 percent when compared to the previous year.
—For a pre-pandemic perspective, the United States exported nearly $3.3 billion in passenger air transportation services in March 2019. These receipts are expenditures by foreign residents on international flights of U.S. air carriers.
—Passenger fare receipts accounted for 17 percent of total U.S. travel and tourism exports in March 2022.
Medical/Education/Short-Term Worker Spending
—Expenditures for educational and health-related tourism, along with all expenditures by border, seasonal, and other short-term workers in the United States totaled $3.4 billion in March 2022 (compared to $3.2 billion in March 2021), an increase of 6 percent when compared to the previous year.
—For a pre-pandemic perspective, this spending totaled $4.9 billion in March 2019.

TRADE TALK & Travel Industry Buzz
● Here’s a Skift item that focuses on a domestic issue –one that also has ramifications for inbound overseas traffic:” the rising price of oil is threatening the travel industry’s rebound, with the increase, causing airlines to pass their surging fuel bills on to consumers, as well as forcing U.S. travelers to alter their summer vacation plans. It’s also making tour operators ponder increasing the price of their trips to compensate for booming fuel experiences, which companies that still haven’t fully recovered from the pandemic are hesitant to do to avoiding denting travel demand.” Click here to access the complete article.
● Could Japan open up next month? Japan’s prime minister Fumio Kishida has suggested that that the country is preparing, finally, to reopen to international visitors starting in June. According to an account in the trade publication, TTG, during a speech in London on last Thursday, Kishida said: “We have now eased border control measures significantly, with the next easing taking place in June, when Japan will introduce a smoother entry process similar to that of other G7 members.” Read the complete article here.
● After ten years of operations in the country, The Travel Corporation (TTC) announced that it was closing its office in Brazil at the end of April.

Some of its brands include Contiki Tours, Uniworld River Cruises and Red Carnation Hotels.
● From a recent article in Travel Weekly (UK): “A Kantar TGI survey in April found 16 percent of UK adults have already booked their main summer holiday this year and 20 percent plan to book – of whom 78 percent plan to go abroad – despite three quarters being “worried about the rising price of life” (77 percent) and repercussions of the war in Ukraine (75 percent), and 41 percent being unable to afford their energy bills.” Read the complete article here.
● From TravelMole … a story that seems to be getting legs: “The passport processing bottleneck could cost Britons £1.1 billion ($1.39 billion) in cancelled trips this summer.” New research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research says it leaves ‘one million holidaymakers at risk due to the delays.’ Data from the VisitBritain Covid-19 Consumer Sentiment Tracker shows that more than two in five are planning an overseas trip in the coming 12 months,” the Centre said. It projects only 50 percent of people will have ‘successful and timely’ passport renewals. Due to demand, the Passport Office warned travelers to apply 10 weeks in advance. Here is the article.
● Travelers Canada, the Canadian division of The Travelers Companies, Inc. has announced the results of the 2022 Travelers Canada Distracted Driving Risk Survey, revealing that most Canadians—a market that travels overwhelmingly by auto—engage in dangerous behaviors behind the wheel despite knowing the associated risks. While 77 per cent of Canadians say that distracted driving is very risky and they take every step possible to avoid being distracted, half of respondents admit to talking or using a phone while driving. Notably, one in five drivers admit they have had a crash, collision or near miss because they were distracted.” Work-related pressures may also be contributing to distracted driving. According to the survey, 29 per cent of Canadians say they respond to work-related calls, texts or emails while driving. Reasons cited include concern that it might be a work emergency (44 percent), feeling the need to always be available (30 percent) and worrying that they will miss something important (28 percent).
