It amounted to about 64% compared to about 48% in October 2021 and 68% in October 2019.

The highest occupancy rates were recorded in Eilat: about 72% and in the Dead Sea: about 71%, then Nazareth with about 66%, Jerusalem with 64%, Tel Aviv with 64%, Herzliya with 63%, Tiberias and Haifa with about 60% each and Netanya with about 58%.

The hotel association said: “The month of October is traditionally considered a strong month for inbound tourism with the arrival of many pilgrim groups to Israel. The real test of the return of tourists from abroad to Israel will be in the winter months. Without a significant campaign to attract tourists from frozen Europe to Israel, the land of the eternal sun, we fear that the tourism industry will suffer a severe blow. The Ministry of Tourism must take advantage of Israel’s climatic advantage and start an intensive marketing campaign in the world, without delay. At the rate things are going right now, we may lose momentum and the investment will go down the drain. Domestic tourism continues to prove its strength and breaks the 2019 and 2020 records on an annual basis.
