The leaders and the outsiders.
The results of 2022 present a robust recovery on the short-term rental market in all 31 countries (EU and EFTA countries) when compared to 2021, but there were some differences when compared with 2019.
In 2022, the largest increase in the number of nights compared to 2019 was registered in Sweden (+33%), France (+31%) and Belgium (+23%).
However, the 14 EU members are still behind 2019 levels. The most notable decline was recorded in the Czech Republic (-36%), Hungary (-27%), Ireland and Estonia (-23% each).
