[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 September 2019

Increase in the number of guest arrivals in tourism accommodation establishments of the Region was insufficient to prevent another drop in the number of overnights stays and in total revenue

Initial estimates of tourism accommodation for September 2019 show a decrease in the number of overnight stays (-2.6%), total revenue (-3.7%) and revenue from accommodation (-2.8%).

Excluding local lodging under 10 beds, the overnight stays would have declined by 4.1% year-on-year. In the country, on the other hand, overnight stays grew by 3.3%, while total revenue and revenue from accommodation increased by 6.7% and 6.4%, respectively.

In the month of reference, the number of overnight stays in the Autonomous Region of Madeira (considering all local accommodation) stood at 786.9 thousand. Total revenue and revenue from accommodation amounted to 41.3 and 26.9 million euros, respectively.

It should be noted that the number of guest arrivals went up by 1.5%, meaning that the average length of stay dropped from 5.5 nights in September 2018 to 5.2 nights in September of this year.

The overnight stays in hotel establishments dropped by 3.9% year-on-year and were responsible for 84.0% of the total, while the overnight stays in local lodging increased by 5.3% compared to the same month of the previous year and accounted for 14.1% of the total. In turn, rural tourism, which represented 1.9% of the total, registered a 3.7% increase in overnight stays.

Looking at the data broken down by market, compared to September 2018, the British (-14.7%), German (-8.8%) and French (-3.9%) markets had a negative performance. The Portuguese market grew by 16.1%.

In cumulative terms (January to September), while overnight stays in tourism accommodation fell by 2.3%, total revenue and lodging revenue recorded a more pronounced decrease (-4.2% and -3.8%, respectively).

The bed occupancy rate in the reference month reached 66.7%, dropping by 4.3 percentage points over the same month of the previous year, while the room occupancy rate reached 74.7%.

The average income per room (RevPAR) recorded a year-on-year change rate of -3.9%, decreasing to € 52.82. The average daily rated (ADR) dropped by 1.1% in September 2019, to € 70.66.

Slight drop in the number of rounds played in Madeira’s golf courses

The data from the Golf Course Survey show that the number of rounds played in the three golf courses of the Autonomous Region of Madeira in the first nine months of 2019 stood at 46,334 (-0.8% compared to the corresponding period of 2018), generating 1.8 million euros of revenue. 70.2% of those rounds were played by non-members, mainly coming from Nordic countries, Germany and Portugal. 56.6% of the total rounds were sold by hotel establishments and similar, 23.1% by tour operators, and the remaining 20.4% by the golf courses themselves.

Number of transit passengers aboard cruise ships in Madeira’s ports increased

According to the data provided by the Port’s authority, 348,380 transit passengers aboard cruise ships were counted in the January to September 2019 period, a 11.5% increase when compared to the same period of the previous year. However, the number of cruise ships that visited the Autonomous Region of Madeira dropped by two when compared to the same period of 2018.
