Flights are so expensive now compared to 2019

With the Corona crisis came the crisis for the aviation industry. But now many trips are possible again and the situation is easing. Nevertheless, flights in Europe in particular are more expensive than they were in 2019.

Despite the Germans’ desire to travel Corona-pandemic apparently not past – but you have to dig deeper into your pocket for that. The flight prices for the ten most frequently booked destinations are currently 29 percent higher than in the same period of 2019 as the comparison portal Check24 communicated.

The prices for return flights rose the most Spain. They are currently 34 percent more expensive than before the corona pandemic.

Book flights for late summer and autumn soon

“The increasing demand is driving flight prices up,” said Sebastian Sager, Managing Director Flights at Check24. In May, the average price level was 16 percent higher than before the Corona crisis.

“Anyone planning a vacation for late summer or autumn should take care of the flights soon before prices rise further or the preferred connection is fully booked,” advised Sager. The airlines had planned more cautiously due to Corona, so there was generally less capacity available.

Turkey and Greece are particularly popular

The demand for flights to Turkey and to Greece rose the most, according to Check24. The holiday destination Turkey was recently booked more than twice as often as in the same period of 2019. In terms of price, the flights to both countries are currently eight percent higher than in the same period of 2019. For the popular holiday destination Italy, the portal found 16 percent higher flight prices, for Croatia 13 percent . For the neighboring countries of the Netherlands and Austria, the portal even stated a price increase of 106 and 86 percent, respectively.

The database was all flight bookings via Check24 in June for departures between July 1 and September 30, 2019 and 2021.


Blue dollar today: how much it is trading this Sunday, July 18, 2021

The workers mobilized to the labor portfolio and to Congress in full mandatory conciliation. ATSA singled out Labor Minister Claudio Moroni for his efforts to find solutions but at the same time lashed out at businessmen. The fight plan does not stop, ratified the strike of 4 hours per shift for the close of the week, they anticipated that this Tuesday there will be demonstrations in sanatoriums and hospitals


you only enter with more than $ 1 million

This wholesale market was in operation before the arrival of the new controls, but it took its own flight this week. It is “the freest legal dollar”

The new measures of the Central Bank and the National Securities Commission (CNV) on the operation for the acquisition of dollars in the Cash With Liquidation market (CCL) at the beginning of this week They revitalized other legal channels to buy dollars and turn them abroad and, thus, a new price of the dollar was added to the reference values ​​for the exchange market: the “SENEBI dollar” (Bilateral Negotiation Segment).

It should be remembered that, until last week, the maximum weekly bonds that clients of the Settlement and Clearing Agents (ALyCs), stock traders that are not their own portfolio, could sell to buy CCL was 100,000 per week. And now, they can only buy 50,000.

Also, until last week, you could trade around US $ 30,000 with the AL30 bond and without limit with the GD30. But now, the cap is around $ 30,000 a week for both. Thus, the BCRA and CNV regulations put a lock more to the transaction of CCL and there are cases of people who were left with their dollars “stranded” in limbo since they have not been able to make their sales because the new measure seized them in the middle of the operation.

“In fact, a client of mine who received a very large compensation, planned to buy MEP and CCL and kept the bonds locked. He will have to wait three weeks to be able to finalize his plans as a result of the reduction of the quota,” says Mauro Cognetta, financial advisor and director of Big River.

However, when the measure was known, some experts explained that this did not imply that the client who wanted could not sell bonds through the wholesale channel, through the SENEBI, which, in fact, was always the place where large volumes were operated. What does this imply? That not everyone can access it, due to the amounts required to enter.

A characteristic of SENEBI is that the price of the CCL that is negotiated there is agreed between two parties.

What is SENEBI and how does it work?

According to official sources to iProfesional, SENEBI is a round of Stock Exchanges and Markets of Argentina (ByMA) and, therefore, in general lines, operating there has the same conditions as in the open market. “This implies, for example, that If a subject is not authorized to operate CCL, he cannot do so in this segment, “they indicate.

Likewise, the operations carried out in that segment are recorded and must be reported to BYMA at the end of the round. It is very important to note that it does not work with a reference price (that is, it is not a question of supply and demand), but the price is agreed in a negotiation between the two parties involved, a bidder and a demander.

This means that it is a market whose prices do not appear on traders’ screens and are often above average. The parties agree on a figure and close the operation, without any limit or information to the market of what the exchange rate is. But, if there are substantial differences with the screen price (the retail CCL price), it is possible that a complaint will be initiated before the Financial Information Unit (FIU).

“To operate in this square, there is a minimum transaction amount of $ 1 million, which is equivalent to around US $ 6,000, the commission to be paid for the operations carried out in that market is not preset and they are not covered by BYMA’s mandatory guarantee fund, “says a market source.

As previously stated, this Cash With Settlement will continue to operate freely and the Stock Exchange companies will not have nominal limits to operate with their own portfolio.

The retail client does not have the possibility of entering SENEBI due to the values ​​it handles

New regulation, new role for this dollar

Although it worked before the new restrictions, this market was not diffused because the average prices registered in it were very similar to those of the CCL dollar. However, these days, the dollar SENEBI“is becoming a new reference price.

It is the price that best reflects the reference price of the North American currency because it arises from the free and private exchange between a foreign company and a local company“, points out Sergio Morales, CEO of

The expert explains that “the search to externalize assets by Argentine companies does not generally compensate the interest in entering foreign currency into the country, so its price ends up being very similar to the informal dollar, although with the difference that we refer to an operation electronic and completely legal. ”

A) Yes, while yesterday the CCL was trading around $ 167, the SENEBI was around $ 170. However, Cognetta explains that it is a problem that the SENEBI begins to take off more than the CCL and becomes a reference price for the market because “its price is not transparent to the public and, although the amount that was operated at the end of the day, it is not so easy to know how its value is calculated “.

The truth is that operator volumes were also boosted by the arrival of the new measures, given that, up to that moment, 30% were operated in the PPT market (traditional by screen) and 70% in SENEBI (over the counter- OTC), but after the arrival of regulation, this relationship was altered.

“On the first day, the ratio became 85% SENEBI and 25% PPT, although in the following three days it fell almost to the usual average level (70/30)”, describes the specialist. He points out, however, that “we must give it more time to see how the market is accommodating because it is still a few days”, but does not rule out that it will settle around 15% / 85% in the coming months.

In this context, Morales anticipates that the dollar “SENEBI” will continue to exist as a reference, forever and when these measures are in force.

“It should be remembered that this strategy by the Government is aimed at having greater control over financial dollars, which are public and cause a greater impact on the population on the eve of an electoral process,” he says.

For this reason, it does not rule out that the new measures remain in force at least until the elections are held.

New strategy: The discounter is now testing this in its bakery

“We bake fresh for you several times a day”: This is how Lidl has been promoting its bakery shops for years. Now the discounter wants to change its range of fresh baked goods. Like Aldi before.

Almost every Lidl customer knows the baking stations in the markets, where fresh baked goods are offered from the apple pocket with the spelled bread. Most customers do not know that they are only baked, i.e. made as dough pieces.

But Lidl is successful with the concept. Also because bread, rolls and the like are much cheaper than at the bakery around the corner. At the same time, the discounter is refining its strategy and is currently testing selected baked goods that are supplied by traditional regional bakeries. The food newspaper reports.

Lidl wants to keep up regionally

Lidl had already decided last year to focus more on regional products. However, this affected the sustainable Bioland range. Here the company promised farmers and producers from Germany and South Tyrol, who are members of the ecological cultivation association, secure sales opportunities.

Now Lidl wants to keep up regionally with fresh baked goods. “We are already cooperating with traditional regional bakeries in some parts of Germany”, the food newspaper quotes the company headquarters in Bad Wimpfen. The aim is to support regional producers and further increase consumer awareness of regionally produced products.

Lidl is imitating Aldi – but only a little

Competitor Aldi is doing a similar thing. According to the food newspaper, around 20 products come from the bakeries of regional bakers or from locally known bakery brands. Currently in the test phase, Lidl only has a handful of products.

In contrast to Aldi, which sells local products at high prices, Lidl prices are in the “moderate range”. A pretzel stick there costs 39 cents and a potato dough roll 49 cents. And: In contrast to the competition, Lidl is still not supplied with bakery products, but with dough pieces. True to the slogan: We bake fresh for you several times a day.


Is it convenient to put silver in common FIXED TERM or GRAPE in July?

Savers who bet on fixed terms should be attentive to new forecasts of lower inflation, which may change their preferences

The lower inflation forecasts begin to balance the returns offered by the UVA fixed terms compared to the traditional ones, and there savers begin to consider which of these two alternatives is the most appropriate to safeguard the purchasing power of their pesos.

Both options have both their advantages and disadvantages, but the only clue that the situation looms is that the gain of the UVA fixed terms, which were the “stars” of the first semester for granting around 4% per month, according to the high inflation at that time, would decrease in the coming months.

In other words, this placement that adjusts based on the Reference Stabilization Coefficient (CER) index, which reflects inflationary evolution, would see its performance affected by economists’ projections that there will be a lower price increase in the short term. term.

Therefore, its yield would be equal to the fixed rate that today offers a traditional fixed term, which is 3.08% monthly (37% annually).

The alarms for UVA savers have already been turned on. According to Claudio Caprarulo, chief economist at Analytica consultants, the inflation recorded last June was 2.9%. And for the period from July to September, he told iProfesional, he expects a monthly average of 2.6%.

If these estimates are specified, after several months, this saving tool, which follows the prices of the economy, it would be just below the rate paid for a traditional fixed term.

Something that would make these investments that are governed by a fixed rate more attractive, especially since they are 30-day placements, so they allow the money to be moved quickly to another type of instrument, in the event of an alteration. in the political and economic “climate” of the country.

On the other hand, the UVA fixed terms require a minimum reserve requirement of the funds of 90 days, a period that in Argentina can be “eternal” in an electoral year.

The justifications for these downward inflation forecasts, according to Caprarulo, are mainly based on the fact that the “Government strongly reduced the depreciation of the peso, to just over 1% during the last two months, and in turn slowed down both the rate increase and many contracts, which during 2020 were frozen. ”

This trend of lower inflation is being perceived in the demand for UVA fixed terms.

In fact, days ago, Javier Dicristo, Banco Meridian Investment Manager, told iProfesional: “I am a little surprised, queries dropped a lot to do this type of placement. ”

With downward forecasts of inflation, the doubt of the savers is in what fixed term it is convenient to put the weights

Fixed term UVA vs. traditional

It should be remembered that in the first half of the year, UVA fixed terms were the instruments that grew the most among savers, due to the fact that they doubled their participation among placements.

Is that at the end of last year they represented barely 2.5% of the volume of all traditional deposits, while today the proportion doubled to 5% of the total.

“The prominence of the fixed term UVA has two key ingredients: the intervention of the Government in the prices of the stock exchange dollars, which slow down their evolution; and the acceleration of inflation, which allowed the yields to be also higher”, summarizes Iván Cachanosky, Chief Economist of the Fundación Libertad y Progreso.

And he adds: “For these reasons, the outlook for the fixed term UVA It was clearer in the first quarter, and it was already a bit more risky from April to June. Nonetheless, it yielded 24% in the first 6 months, thus beating both the traditional variant (18%) as well as the MEP dollars (17%) and counted with liquidation (18%)“.

Beyond that the performance that this instrument will have in the months to come, most of the analysts consulted by iProfesional estimate that it is still “a good option”.

“In particular, he thought that it is still a good option to follow inflation, but the overheating of the US banknote in recent days could tip the balance towards that choice,” Dicristo warns iProfesional.

Beyond this preference for dollarization in times of uncertainty, Juan Pablo Albornoz, an economist at the consulting firm Ecolatina, notes that, in the medium term, for those seeking inflationary coverage, UVA fixed terms are a good option “.

At the same time, it completes that “everything seems to indicate that in the coming months inflation would tend to decline gradually, mainly due to the handbrake on the official dollar. Although the reopening of parities could put pressure in this way, we would not immediately see this effect. , mainly, because the increases are given in installments “.

Now, for the very short term, Albornoz considers that the fixed term UVA, “perhaps, has a lower yield than the one they have been showing and it is more convenient to stop at, for example, the mutual funds (FCI) fixed rate, which would beat inflation in these two or three months. ”

It also adds no less data for this instrument, with respect to the aforementioned fact that “it requires having the silver stopped for at least 90 days, and at most it pays CER plus 0.25%.

In addition, in the previous election, for the saver, the path that the exchange rate takes can weigh heavily.

“Not everything is rosy, we must not forget that the parallel dollar yield they find each other strongly repressed by the interventions of the Central Bank and the Sustainability Guarantee Fund (FGS) “, Cachanosky warns iProfesional.

Regarding inflation, as mentioned above, the average of the latest projections of the Market Expectations Survey (REM) published by the BCRA, forecasts a rise in prices that “would be close to 3% per month for the next few months.”

In this way, the attractiveness observed during the first semester with the UVA fixed terms, according to Cachanosky, could “gradually lose relevance”, since inflation would return to levels close to 3%, matching the traditional fixed term.

According to the last REM published on July 8, for the month of June 2021 the median of the economists’ estimates was at 3,2%, and “for following months the total number of participants projects a slightly downward trajectory in monthly average inflation “.

In fact, 2.9% is expected for July and a lower median for the following months, which reaches a floor that reaches 2.7% per month in September and October.

With an interest rate of 3% per month, traditional fixed terms could begin to exceed what UVAs offer, which follow inflation, which could be 2.7% per month.

With an interest rate of 3% per month, traditional fixed terms could begin to exceed those offered by UVAs, which follow inflation.

More attractive traditional fixed term?

A not minor fact is that, since september last year, deposits to traditional fixed term they have consistently lost to inflation.

On July 2020 had their last positive performance, when, at that time, the monthly compensation exceeded inflation by half a percentage point, providing a rate of 2.4% while the price increase was 1.9% that month.

“After last august entered a Shadow icon´, a period in which its performance practically equaled the monthly increase in the National CPI “, and little by little it was falling below inflation, the analyst Andrés Méndez of AMF Economía summarizes to iProfesional.

Thus, since the middle of last year, the Central Bank’s strategy was to “freeze” the minimum yield on retail time deposits at 3% per month.

Therefore, everything indicates that, to the extent that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) is not below that percentage, the performance of these loans will be negative.

In this sense, Natalia Motyl, economist at the Fundación Libertad y Progreso, explains: “Inflation is one of the major influences that govern the level of interest rates. If the rate at which saving is remunerated is lower than the rise of expected prices, we will be losing in real terms. Therefore, the minimum rate must always be equal to or greater than expected inflation “.

In other words, in the face of a Central Bank that “´looks the other way”, the future development of internal prices may rekindle (or not) the validity of savings in pesos of small savers in traditional placements. if the expected turning point could have occurred in June “, emphasizes Méndez.

To complete that “it is probable” that it is due wait until the end of July or next August so that, “from a greater slowdown in the rate of growth of domestic prices, signs of real returns positive for small savers in pesos at a fixed rate “, summarizes this analyst to iProfesional.

That is to say, wait for the monthly inflation sea less than 3.08%, which is the rate granted by a traditional placement.

In this sense, Cachanosky states: “The savers could be interested in go back to traditional placements, since they are for 30 days, and not 90 days as in the case of UVA. This last point is important because it gives savers more room for maneuver in case they want to switch to another instrument, such as going to the MEP dollar or cash with settlement “.

This last point is also one of the aspects that can influence placements in pesos, because if instability increases, it is expected that savers can take refuge in the US currency.

“In recent weeks, the foreign exchange market has shown the mood to wake up a bit. This is normal in the context of elections. The problem is that reserves are scarce and the lack of an economic plan combined with inflationary uncertainty makes the hard currency weaken. make it attractive, “adds Cachanosky.

And he concludes: “With these contexts, it would not be surprising that savers who switched to the fixed term UVA return to the traditional, at least for a month, to feel the evolution of inflation and the exchange rate, instead of being tied back for 90 days to these placements “.

These travel destinations are particularly popular

Even if the number of infections is rising again in many places, many people have already planned a summer vacation. Some areas even benefited from the crisis while others are now less popular. An overview.

Spain, Croatia, Greece: some travel destinations have always been popular with German holidaymakers for decades. Due to the Corona crisis, however, some preferences have shifted – with sometimes surprising results and consequences for prices and availability. t-online shows where a particularly large number of people are going this summer, where prices are rising and where you now have the chance of spontaneous vacations.

Surveys show travel trends for summer 2021

The travel company “Hometogo” commissioned a survey to assess the travel behavior of Germans in the summer. The data is based on several million search queries that were received on “Hometogo” in 2019 and 2021 for various check-in dates. The results not only show which countries are particularly popular.

Other studies show similar results. The marketing consultancy “Simon-Kucher & Partners”, for example, carried out the international study “Travel Trends 2021”, in which more than 7,000 people from 7 countries were surveyed. And “Holidaypirates GmbH” asked more than 1,000 people how they want to travel after the pandemic.

These are the most popular summer destinations

About 80 percent more travel destinations were searched for in Germany for summer 2021 than in 2020, compared to summer 2019 it is 58 percent more. After Germany, Croatia and Italy are still the most popular travel destinations. However, both suffered losses compared to 2019.

France came in fourth, but compared to 2019, 33 percent fewer searches were made for our neighboring country, and the Netherlands and Spain were hit even harder in fifth and sixth place: the two travel destinations lost around 45 percent. Clear winners, however, are Denmark (7th place) and Austria (8th place) with a plus of 63 and even 186 percent.

Sweden and Poland, on the other hand, also had to cope with fewer searches, but ended up in 9th and 10th place in the “Hometogo” ranking.

This is what tourists want when booking

As “Hometogo” reports, there were six times more inquiries about “flexible travel dates” than was the case before the pandemic. So vacationers want more flexibility when planning their vacation in 2021. This is also confirmed by the fact that there are now an average of only 74 days between booking and check-in: Previously it was an average of 108 days. So the trend is towards spontaneous and flexible booking.

The international study “Travel Trends 2021” also shows that only 29 percent of Germans have already booked their summer vacation this year, while 35 percent are still planning to do so.

What type of travel is preferred in 2021?

According to “Hometogo”, around 70 percent of those surveyed would most likely spend their vacation in a holiday home in 2021. In comparison, 32 percent plan to spend the night in a hotel. 77 percent want to travel by car or camper van, camping holiday on the other hand, 28 percent are still planning.

In the travel year 2021, beaches and natural destinations are also in demand. Only 13 percent of those surveyed are planning one city ​​trip, on the other hand, more than half want to go to the sea. National parks and forests are attractive for 18 percent of those surveyed, mountains still for 17 percent.

The international study by the marketing consultancy “Simon-Kucher & Partners” also shows that although the price is still an important criterion for holidaymakers, the pandemic situation at the travel destination or trust in the local health system now also play a major role. For 27 percent, the most important thing is that the trip can be canceled. According to the survey, 49 percent travel by car, 30 percent by plane and only 10 percent want to use the bus or train. Lisa Remmelberger, partner in “Simon-Kucher’s Competence Center for Travel, Tourism & Leisure”, explains: “Consumers’ needs have changed. Travelers want to have the certainty, without restrictions or the risk of one quarantine To be able to go on vacation. “The providers would therefore have to offer flexibility in booking conditions and take precautions to ensure a safe and pleasant stay.

As the survey by “Holidaypirates” also shows, many also want to travel more sustainably in the future. A quarter of those surveyed said they wanted to travel more responsibly in the future, 16 percent said they had already paid attention to this before the pandemic.

When do most Germans travel?

According to the “Hometogo” survey, the most popular travel months for 60 percent of those surveyed are July or August. However, 46 percent can also imagine a vacation in September or October, 30 percent have already traveled in May or June and only 11 percent are planning winter for their vacation.

What influence will the vaccinations have on trips in summer 2021?

More and more countries are restricting their entry options only for those who have not yet been vaccinated against the coronavirus. Those who have been vaccinated or recovered often no longer need to be in quarantine or no longer need to be in quarantine when entering the country Covid-19 get tested.

More than half of the “Hometogo” respondents are of the opinion that those who have been vaccinated are allowed to travel freely again earlier, while 28 percent are against earlier advantages for those who have been vaccinated. In the meantime, there is the European one to make travel easier for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered Vaccination certificate. 62 percent of those surveyed rated this option positively.

How did the corona crisis change prices?

“Hometogo” examined, among other things, how the prices developed in June for example weeks in July and August. The travel agent points out, however, that there are holiday accommodations everywhere that differ from the average prices. That always depends on the location, size or equipment.

“The price developments from 2019 to 2021 do not mean that individual holiday accommodations have become more expensive or cheaper”, explains “Hometogo”, “Rather, the price development provides information about how much more or less a holidaymaker has to pay on average for one night in a holiday home Comparison at the same point in time in 2019. The differences result primarily from a different selection of available accommodations in the comparison period. “

The calculation shows, for example, that the price of an overnight stay in Germany has increased by 26 percent from 96 to 116 euros compared to 2019. In Croatia 132 euros are due, in Italy 126 euros. The difference is particularly large in Denmark, for example: in 2019 the average price for an overnight stay was 90 euros, in 2021 149 euros will be charged. The most expensive, however, is Mallorca with an average price of 254 euros per night.

“Travel Trends 2021” also asked about the travel budget of Germans: 27 percent of those surveyed want to spend more money on their upcoming vacation than they did before the pandemic. Anna Krumpen, Senior Consultant and Expert for Travel, Tourism & Leisure at “Simon-Kucher & Partners”, explains: “The long travel restrictions mean that society has a lot of catching up to do, and the desire to travel is high. As many consumers have been able to save money they have a budget that they can and want to spend on travel in 2022. “

What does “workation” mean?

Due to the Corona crisis, it has also become more and more popular to combine work and vacation in a “workation”. As the study “Travel Trends 2021” shows that 42 percent of Germans are open to this model because they can work increasingly flexibly due to the Corona crisis. More than half of Germans would even extend their vacation by two weeks or more if they had a “workation”.

For the selection of the “workation” location, the equipment such as stable internet, a separate work area and electronic equipment is particularly important. “The shift to remote working and hybrid models is good news for the tourism industry. The opportunity to work during the day and relax in a beautiful vacation spot in the evenings and on weekends attracts a lot of people,” explains Lisa Remmelberger.

In the “Holidaypirates” survey, as many as 40 percent state that “Workation” is the perfect way to extend their vacation and “really get to know a new place”. 37 percent can even imagine moving completely to another country.
