I agree that there is possibly an incorrect assumption that Domestic Tourism will prove the saviour. Its best to analysis that market in segments, i.e. Corporate, Conference, Government and to a large degree ignore leisure as it is uncertain. The offerings therefore need to be tailored to these groups of travellers. If you can get an understanding of their needs and drive value at their touch points it may prove successful.

Your second point around a Australasian bubble is being discussed and must be a priority. Here we may see a greater appetite for ‘Internal Tourism’ but I foresee households being very cautious. We must remember than when house prices rise households spend freely on holidays , cars and luxuries and we will have this fundamental reality to add to the loss of income, holidays leave taken to top up wages, and general caution.

Stay safe, LM
