The Covid-19 pandemic affected the entire travel industry across the world. The car rental industry felt the effects greatly. Though many people traveled domestically, rentals in locations that rely on foreign tourists saw rental bookings drop precipitously. There has been a bounce back in almost every country in 2022, though.
The average length of rental also changed due to the pandemic. Many vacationers rented cars for a longer time, avoiding public transportation and traveling longer when they did travel.
Below, you'll find charts of the change in bookings compared to 2019 (which serves as a baseline before the pandemic) and the average number of days renters had their cars.
