Volusia County’s summer tourist season was booming in July. A report said that the county saw record monthly collections of over $3.9 million in bed-tax collections.

This is the second consecutive month of record-setting beach vacations this summer, which has seen more tourists travel to beaches due to increased outdoor travel options.

Bob Davis, President and CEO of Lodging & Hospitality Association of Volusia County, said, “This is one of my favorite summers.”

“I cannot remember a summer like this,” he added.

In July, hotels, vacation rental properties, and campgrounds in the county generated $3,965,775 in bed tax. This is 44% more than the $2,760,166 in the same month two years ago.

The Volusia County Revenue Division reported that this figure also exceeded the $2,199,537 collected by pandemic-crippled July 2020 by 80%.

Michael Jones, operations manager at the Volusia County Treasury and Billing, stated that July’s collection total was an all-time monthly record.

According to Lori Campbell Baker (executive director of the Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau), the record numbers result from effective tourism marketing campaigns and pent-up demand for travel by visitors who drive to the destination.
