The financial results of the quarter, which covers the period from April to June, were most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in the tourism industry.

Many countries have closed their borders, travel conditions have become more difficult, and most travelers have canceled their traditional trips during the hottest tourist season due to concerns about possible coronavirus infection.

The two largest American companies in online tourism Booking Holdings and TripAdvisor announced their results in the second quarter. Despite record losses due to the pandemic and the continuing negative conditions, the management of the companies encouraged investors with reports of signs of recovery in demand and further expectations for improvement.

In addition, on Thursday, the US Department of State, in close cooperation with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), repealed a recommendation to US citizens (introduced March 19) “to avoid any international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.”

However, some countries have returned to their former conditions for visits by foreigners, while others have a more streamlined procedure.

The State Department said that will “provide US citizens with more information about the current status of each country.”

Against the background of these news, shares of Booking and Tripadvisor rose to 4% and 2.7% before the opening of trading on Friday, despite quarterly losses.

In spite of the fact that the number of unique Tripadvisor users still decreased significantly compared to last year, their number has increased since April.

According to a press release from Tripadvisor, from the end of March to April, a significant decrease in revenue compared to last year as a whole stabilized by segments and products of the company.
