The different tourist rental services in the Memphremegog MRC will see an increase in occupancy between Feb. 26 and March 7 for March break. The different activities allowed by the loosening of governmental restrictions for the week such as indoor and outdoor skating, the municipal sliding, outdoor trails, and skiing at Mount Orford are the main reasons behind the increase.
“We are excepting a good March break week and it might even overflow because people travel in family bubbles instead of groups,” said Tourisme Canton-de-l’Est press relation’s spokesperson Danie Béliveau.
Even if it is not recommended to move between regions, the different rental services will accept anyone to stay, as long as they remain in their familial bubble and respect other governmental restrictions.
The platform Location Toursime Estrie, which rents condos, cottages, and houses is at full capacity for the week. Benoit Monbleau, president of the company explained that because of the pandemic, reservations have followed a different pattern, but the occupancy rate remained high.
