Trip.com Group’s New Recovery Campaign Shows Tourism Leaders Still Long for China’s Outbound Travelers

That it took Trip.com Group to pull together the global travel industry in a travel revival campaign rather than a world tourism body, Google Travel or Booking Holdings, shows the ongoing importance of the China outbound travel market.

In a never-before spectacle of global industry unity, Trip.com Group roped in more than 70 tourism, aviation, and hotel leaders worldwide to individually address tourists why their next trip would be their best yet.

The two-hour video launch on Monday is a cross-industry effort to instill confidence and inspire people to “Travel On,” with assurances that it’s attractive, safe, secure, clean, flexible and more affordable than ever.

Close to 150 million outbound trips by Chinese were recorded in 2018, an increase of 15 percent over 2017,

Hotels, holiday apartments, caravan parks and campsites will be allowed to operate, as long as shared facilities are kept clean, as well as cinemas, arcades and theme parks, but swimming pools and spas “need to remain closed for now.”

The association’s proposed tax credit would allow for a refund of 50 percent of qualified travel expenses through the end of 2021, with qualified expenses
