Poles and their holidays in the time of a pandemic. Traffic on the most popular online travel platforms in July
Due to the epidemic situation, many Poles decided to rest without leaving the country during this year's holidays. A large group of people, however, decided to go on organized trips abroad with travel agencies, choosing popular, sunny resorts in Europe, Africa and Asia. What was the traffic on the most popular online travel platforms in Poland in July 2021?

One of the most popular comparison websites in Poland, intermediating in the purchase of trips organized by travel agencies, in July 2021 recorded over 2 million real users.

When analyzing the data on visits to the websites of intermediaries in holiday and foreign travels of Poles for July 2021, their high repeatability is noticeable. Both the number of people who visited the analyzed websites and their gender are shaped in a very similar style. A similar trend throughout the month (popularity at the beginning of the weeks and at weekends) is noticeable. Among the analyzed entities, two of them took the lead - Wakacje.pl and the Rainbow travel agency. In each of the analyzed entities, most of the visitors (always over 60%) are women. This allows to make a thesis that they are the ones who are most interested in foreign trips, also dealing with their selection and booking. The second conclusion is the one regarding consumer behavior - despite the epidemic situation, Poles do not give up foreign trips, willingly browsing the pages devoted to their organization and booking.
