Kiwis take over a million overseas holidays

Kiwis take over a million overseas holidays

21 October 2016

New Zealand residents took 1.09 million overseas holiday trips in the September 2016 year, Statistics New Zealand said today. This was 71,200 more holiday trips than in the September 2015 year.

"More New Zealand residents travelling to the Cook Islands, Australia, and Fiji helped drive this increase," population statistics manager Jo-Anne Skinner said.

In September 2016, New Zealand residents made 267,900 trips overseas, a new September record. This was a 14 percent increase from September 2015.

Australian holidaymakers help visitor arrival increase in September

An increase in holidaymakers from across the Tasman (up 10 percent to 52,800) helped set a new September record of 245,100 visitor arrivals. These, along with holidaymakers from the US, Malaysia, and Korea contributed to 16,200 more arrivals into New Zealand for holidaying compared with September 2015.

In the September 2016 year, visitor arrivals hit a record 3.39 million, up 11 percent from the September 2015 year. This was driven by increases in visitor arrivals from Australia, China, and the United States.
