[NOTE: Regarding the monthly publication of Tourism data for the year 2019, the Regional Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM) will keep in broad lines the model followed in the previous year. However, it should be noted that Statistics Portugal (INE) starts from the reference month of January 2019 onwards to disseminate data for an aggregate comprising hotel, rural/lodging tourism and local accommodation with 10 or more beds (in terms of accommodation capacity), thus closely following the model implemented by DREM at the beginning of 2018. In Madeira, DREM also surveys the local accommodation under 10 beds, so in this press release and in the tables published by this Regional Directorate the overall total for guests and overnight stays is higher when compared to INE’s. For the bed and room occupancy rates and for revenue and personnel costs, the figures of DREM and INE are the same, since the local accommodation under 10 beds is not included in the compilation of these variables.]

In February 2019

Overnight stays and total revenue in the tourist accommodation sector of Madeira decreased

Initial estimates of tourism accommodation for February 2019 show a decrease in the number of overnight stays (-1.8%) and total revenue (-5.3%). Revenue from accommodation declined by 3.8%.

It should be noted that excluding local accommodation under 10 beds, overnight stays dropped by 3.9% year-on-year. In the country overnight stays decreased by 1.0%, while total revenue and revenue from accommodation increased by 4.4% and 2.8%, respectively.

In the month of reference, the number of overnight stays in the Autonomous Region of Madeira (considering all local accommodation) stood at 543.7 thousand. Total revenue and revenue from accommodation amounted to 25.0 and 16.3 million euros, respectively.

The overnight stays in hotel establishments dropped by 4.2% year-on-year and were responsible for 82.9% of the total, while the overnight stays in local lodging increased by 14.5% compared to the same month of the previous year and accounted for 15.5% of the total. In turn, rural tourism, which represented 1.7% of the total, registered a 5.7% decrease in overnight stays.

Looking at the data broken down by market, the German, French and British markets had a negative performance, compared to February 2018, declining by 12.1%, 8.5% and 0.4%, respectively. The Portuguese market partially mitigated the drop of non-resident tourists (-3.2%), rising by 12.0%.
