The most-booked overseas destination in this autumn is Hawaii with honeymoon demand resumed

HIS, one of the leading travel companies in Japan, revealed its overseas travel booking trends in this coming autumn (September 1 to November 30 2022), based on bookings of package tours, dynamic packages and international air tickets. 

HIS received 1374.5% more overseas travel bookings for the period than a year ago, as it has already restarted selling tours for 38 countries and regions. Compared to the same period of 2019, however, the received booking reduced by 85%. 

The average expenses are up 30.5% to 216,800 JPY year on year or even up 90.3% compared to 2019 because of higher fuel surcharges and more bookings on long-range flights.

The most-booked destination was Hawaii, accounting for around 30% of the total. HIS said that bookings for honeymooners, wedding couples and attendances have increased. It is noteworthy that HIS has received many bookings for Doha, a host city for FIFA World Cup in November 2022.

Domestic travel bookings in this coming autumn increased by 143.3% year on year, and the average expenses were up 1.8% to 57,400 JPY. The most popular destination was Okinawa, followed by Hokkaido and Osaka.
