Travel Products comprise a third of NZ’s total online spend

At almost $2 billion in 2013, Travel Products now comprise a third of NZ’s total online spend

New Zealanders aged 14+ spent $5.87 billion online in 2013—averaging over $1600 per Kiwi, the latest research from Roy Morgan Research shows.

Thanks to websites like Expedia, Webjet and Travelbug, travel products now comprise a third of all online expenditure, with $1.98 billion spent last year.

The next biggest chunk of our online spend goes on Entertainment and Leisure purchases (14.1%) followed by Electronics products (11.2%), Fashion (10.4%) and Food and Beverages (7.5%).

Proportion of $5.87billion spent online in 2013 by category:

Pip Elliott, General Manager, Roy Morgan Research NZ, says:

“Comparing these results with our previous research for the year to April 2013, the Travel category was the only one to experience any dramatic growth in dollars spent, up $340 million. Consequently, Travel Products now account for 33.7% of all online dollars, up from 29.2%.

“The Electronic Products, Food and Beverage and Other categories each declined slightly in dollar terms and, therefore, as a proportion of total expenditure.

“45% of New Zealanders now say they research online but purchase in stores and 51% only buy online from retailers they know.”
