UK sees continued arrival gains; but sales growth tempered by headwinds

UK sees continued arrival gains; but sales growth tempered by headwinds



Despite a 9% increase in arrival numbers, sales in the UK declined by 9% in September

15th November 2017.

 

Despite a 9% increase in arrival numbers, sales in the UK declined by 9% in September, driven by an 8% fall in the volume of transactions, as a number of headwinds start to affect sales in the UK. Firstly, the relationship between arrivals and sales provided a contrasting picture in 2016, as the number of arrivals declined by 2%, but the Brexit effect saw an increase in sales with growth of 21%, therefore making growth compares inherently more difficult.

 

Secondly, the importance of Qatari tourists to the UK market and the embargo on this nation also influenced, where in September 2016, these tourists were the fourth most important nationality in the UK, and sales to these tourists saw the largest fall in absolute sales terms amongst all nationalities, relegating these tourists to sixth position in September 2017.

 

Thirdly, the impact of terror attacks had been seen to be fairly muted, however, with many tourists having already booked summer vacations at this time, and with the most recent attack on the 15th September, this could now be a deterrent for the High Net Worth travellers. These factors, along with a moderately strengthening Pound, are currently likely to affect the remainder of 2017.
