Short-term rental bookings are surging as Australian travel re-opens for summer

Bookings for MadeComfy short-term rentals have surged in November, as COVID-19 outbreaks across the country are contained, hard-hit states such as Victoria emerge out of lockdown and major interstate travel borders re-open in time for summer holidays and Christmas.

November has been a bumper month for new bookings, as confidence returns to the domestic travel market and Australians seek an interstate or local holiday after a year of lockdowns and restrictions.

Breaking down the booking trend by key states has revealed significant pent-up demand for interstate travel.

For example, daily bookings have increased over 280% for MadeComfy Melbourne short-term rentals since November 22rd, which has aligned to New South Wales residents being able to travel into the state following that date, as well as the announcement on the 25th that Victoria and Queensland border restrictions will be lifted from December.
