Our data engineers have created some week-on-week graphs for German hotel reservations and cancellations from our database of partner integrations.

Starting on lockdown in Germany due to the COVID-19 crisis, these more-or-less weekly visualisations show how bookings, cancellations, check-ins and checkouts have been affected over the past few months.
In the case of Germany, we see how lockdown starts to affect hotel checkouts and cancelations. With summer holiday reservations remaining largely uncanceled, a hint of optimism remains throughout as the story of hotels now reopening and recovering unfolds through data. Have a look through the visualizations below to see how the the pandemic affected hotel bookings and cancelations and to see the current status and outlook for Germany.
On March 22 as Germany went into lockdown, German hotel checkouts (the grey line) drop only a small percentage of what they were previously.
Spring reservations are cancelled: a slowly descending wave of cancelations (the red line) moves forward, affecting most reservations over the subsequent three months.
Summer is largely uncanceled: the green spikes in July and August have a bit of downward movement, but don’t change dramatically.
The (grey) checkout line starts to trend slowly upwards, with some notable peaks on weekends.
The regular spikes are over weekends, as that’s when most people check in and check out.
The green spikes show summer reservations which start going slowly upwards, beginning around the time when the German government announces that hotels will be able to open again.
We see an immediate spike in the first green lines as spontaneous getaways seem to be at the order of the day over the Pentecost holidays at the end of May.
Here we can see a slightly higher increase in bookings and the brown “checked in” line spiking as hotels in Germany start to reopen and guests start to arrive at hotels once more. One thing is clear. Germans have no intention of giving up on the summer holidays.
