North Island domestic guest nights drive July rise – Media release

10 September 2015

National guest nights for July 2015 were 4.0 percent higher than in July 2014, Statistics New Zealand said today.

"Two-thirds of the rise for July was from North Island domestic guest nights," business indicators senior manager Neil Kelly said. "International guest nights and South Island guest nights also increased, but to a lesser extent."

For July 2015, compared with July 2014:
• North Island guest nights were up 5.7 percent, and South Island guest nights were up 1.4 percent.
• Domestic guest nights were up 4.4 percent, and international guest nights were up 3.3 percent.
• Eleven of the 12 regional areas had more guest nights.
• All four accommodation types had more guest nights.

For the year ended July 2015, national guest nights were up 5.3 percent from the July 2014 year.

The trend for national guest nights continued to rise in July. Seasonally adjusted guest nights rose 1.1 percent in July, following a fall in June.

The Accommodation Survey collects data for guests staying in hotels, motels, backpacker accommodation, and holiday parks in New Zealand each month.
