Eleven accommodation providers are regularly reporting their occupancy rates for June, July and August. As of May 29 the average occupancy is as follows:
- June: 28% (most of these bookings are for the later half of June)
- July: 51%
- August: 57%
Once the Province of BC moves into Phase 3 and begins to allow recreational/non-essential travel, we expect to see growth in the summer levels.
Coming up soon:
- We are developing a “Travelling during the COVID-19 Pandemic” information page that will be made available to members this week. Members can brand it, place it on their websites and provide it to guests with booking confirmations.
- Tourism Tofino will begin to advertise at the start of Phase 3 and will also be partnering with Destination BC on their upcoming campaign.
