(10 December 2020) In September, Iceland, Norway, and Denmark had the highest average room prices on Airbnb among European countries, according to Yuvoh analytics. These three countries also had relatively low numbers of active COVID-19 cases per million population as of September and saw significant improvements in domestic tourist arrivals compared to the previous year.

Germany, Italy, and Spain outperformed the pricier Airbnb locations in terms of the total number of domestic tourists, probably aided by their strong country 'brand' rating, published by Bloom Consulting, analyzing the brand performance of 193 countries and territories worldwide. That said, these countries have not yet fully recovered from COVID-19 and reported lower overall tourist arrivals compared to the same period of 2019. 

Eastern-European countries, including Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary, and Latvia had the lowest average price tag on Airbnb in September. Domestic tourism in these countries returned to pre-COVID levels by the end of summer due to low numbers of active COVID-19 cases.
