Canada extened it’s ban on travel between the United States and Canada through Nov. 21, 2020.
Myrtle Beach Hotels make the larger share of their “offseason” income from Canadian Snowbirds. These retirees historically visit from November until April.
The health ban has some hotels down 75% in revenue this Fall.
This, after being down more than 35% in revenue much of the Summer.
“There’s nothing you can do to prepare for the loss of business,” Ray Booth, Oceans One general manager told WBTW News.
Now, the 60% of Booth’s 65 and older guests that usually stay monthly starting in November are thinking twice due to COVID-19.
“For November, about three quarters of our monthly stays have decided that it would probably be best for them to stay home,” said Booth.
City of Myrtle Beach Hotels were among the especially hard hit during the 2020 year.
