Introduction: The International Passenger Survey

Travel Trends 2010

Introduction: Travel Trends Travel Trends is an annual publication which presents some of the key trends in overseas travel and tourism drawn from the findings of the International Passenger Survey (IPS). Analysis is based on completed visits (for any purpose) of less than 12 months’ duration by: a)

overseas residents to the UK, and

b)

UK residents abroad

What is the International Passenger Survey? The IPS is a continuous survey carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the results of which are used by a number of government departments and organisations. The results are based on face-to-face interviews with a random sample of passengers as they enter or leave the UK by the principal air, sea and tunnel routes. The main aims of the IPS are to: •

collect data in order to measure travel expenditure and how it impacts on the UK balance of payments (on the travel account)



provide detailed information about overseas visits to the UK for tourism policy, and



provide data to feed into estimates of international migration

Note that, although data collected on the IPS feeds into the estimates of international migration statistics, this report does not provide any information relating to migration. The IPS was 50 years old in 2010. Since it started in 1961 its coverage has been extended so that it includes all the main air, sea and tunnel ports into and out of the UK. The only modes of transport excluded from the survey are sea routes to and from the Channel Islands, the land border with the Irish Republic, and cruise ships travelling to and from the UK. Travellers passing through passport control are randomly selected for interview and all interviews are conducted on a voluntary and anonymous basis. Interviewing is carried out throughout the year, and in 2010 over 300,000 interviews were conducted representing about 0.2 per cent of travellers. The overall response rate for the 2010 survey was 81 per cent. About 95 per cent of passengers entering and leaving the UK have a chance of being sampled in the survey. The remainder are either passengers travelling at night, when interviewing is suspended, or on those routes too small in volume or too expensive to be covered. The IPS data are weighted to produce national estimates of all international travellers to and from the UK on a quarterly basis. Although some monthly data from the IPS are also published, a single quarter is the minimum period over which most detailed analyses of the data can be made. Annual national estimates are created by combining the four quarters of the year together.

Introduction: The International Passenger Survey

Travel Trends 2010

The calculation of the weights on the IPS takes into account its complex sample design and information provided from other sources on, among other things, the non-sampled routes and time periods. For example, estimates of spending by travellers to and from the Channel Islands are modelled from information provided by the Economic Advisor’s Office in Jersey, and the Central Statistical Office in the Irish Republic provides information on travellers crossing the land border with Northern Ireland. A fuller description of the IPS methodology can be found in Appendix C.

Contents of this report The IPS celebrated its 50th year in 2010 and this report starts with a look back at overseas travel and tourism across the past five decades. This is followed by a summary of key findings for 2010. The report includes several data tables, based in most part on annual data although some splits by quarter are included. These data tables are presented in five sections, containing information on: Section 1

The long-term trends in tourism to and from the UK from 1985 to 2010

Section 2

The trends in travel and tourism to the UK over the last five years (2006 to 2010)

Section 3

The trends in overseas travel and tourism by UK residents over the last five years (2006 to 2010)

Section 4

The characteristics of visits made by overseas residents to the UK in 2010, and

Section 5

The characteristics of overseas visits made by UK residents in 2010

All tables which appeared last year have been retained in this edition. Tables such as those numbered 2.10 and 3.10 which list countries of the world visited by UK residents or from which overseas residents have visited the UK have been extended to include Brazil, Russia, Morocco and Nigeria which are countries providing or receiving a relatively large number of visits, or are of particular interest to users. Further, fly cruises have been isolated to reflect the growing importance of cruise holidays in recent years. It is important to note that the tables relating to visits abroad by UK residents report only the main country visited on each trip abroad. This edition of Travel Trends is available only in electronic format.

Accuracy of Overseas Travel and Tourism estimates The estimates contained in this publication are subject to sampling errors that result because not every traveller to or from the UK is interviewed on the survey. Sampling errors are determined both by the sample design and by the sample size - generally speaking, the larger the sample supporting a particular estimate, the proportionately smaller is its sampling error. Table A shows the sampling errors for the main 2010 estimates of the total number of visits, nights and expenditure for both overseas residents visiting the UK and UK residents going abroad. ‘Complex’ sampling errors, which fully account for the clustered sample design of the survey, are shown in the table. Both standard errors and the 95 per cent confidence intervals are quoted, the latter representing the interval into which there are 19 chances out of 20 that the true figure (had all

travellers been surveyed) would fall. The 95 per cent confidence intervals are given both in absolute and relative (percentage) terms - the estimate plus or minus the value, or percentage, gives the appropriate interval for each estimate. Further details on the confidence intervals of data from the IPS and their interpretation can be obtained from the IPS Branch of ONS.

Note: any differences in the ‘Estimates’ figures contained in Table A and those in the tables in the main body of this document are due to Table A being calculated purely from IPS sample rather than processed data which includes estimates such as visits made across the Irish land border. Table A should be referenced only for the purpose of identifying sampling errors. More detailed sampling errors, relating to visits and spending by purpose and region of the UK visited, are provided in Appendix E.

Recent changes in the collection and processing of IPS data Airports at Prestwick and Liverpool were added to the sample in 2005, those at Doncaster, Southampton and Bournemouth were added in 2008 and those at Aberdeen and Belfast were added in 2009 due to the growth in the numbers of travellers at these ports. As a result, detailed results for 2005 onwards may show a slight discontinuity from previous years. In 2007, the IPS introduced a new, more accurate method of coding towns in the UK (both visited by overseas residents and resided in by UK residents). This method employed a more comprehensive list of towns and boroughs to code against. This may also result in a discontinuity from previous years. Care should therefore be exercised when comparing results, especially those of a regional nature, with earlier years.

Introduction: The International Passenger Survey

Travel Trends 2010

In 2009, a new method of processing the data was introduced, leading to some discontinuity in estimates, with some downward impact. Details are provided in a separate publication at the following link: www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_transport/Announcement.pdf In 2010 a review took place of the methodology used to estimate the number of visits made by UK residents on foreign-owned cruises which terminate at a UK seaport. Such cruises have never been sampled in the IPS and estimates of visit numbers have been created using information provided to the IPS. This review has resulted in an improved methodology which has been applied to the final 2010 estimates, with an increase of approximately 175,000 in the estimate of visits to ‘Rest of the world’ by UK residents. Further details can be found in Appendix C.

Notes to tables and figures The following conventions have been used in the tables: 0 denotes a figure of less than 0.5 . indicates that data are not available The sum of spending across sub-categories of visit may not add to total spending. Spend per visit and spend per day by overseas visitors broken down by some categories of visit cannot be calculated by dividing spending by the number of visits. See Appendix B for details. In some cases, percentages in tables in this report from years prior to 2004 may differ by 1.0 per cent from those published in previous years. This is because of changes in the method of rounding figures. The figures in this report are the most accurate.

Acknowledgements The IPS is a large continuous survey and ONS would not be able to carry out the survey without the efforts of many different groups of people from a variety of organisations. In particular, ONS wishes to acknowledge the parts played by the following: 1)

The interviewers for their role in collecting the information on which the results of the IPS are based.

2)

The respondents for the information they have provided.

3)

The operators and managers of seaports, airports and rail terminals who give IPS interviewers access to their facilities in order to interview passengers.

4)

The companies and organisations that provide additional information and data which enable the IPS results to be produced, and have been extremely helpful in producing a look back over the past 50 years.

Celebrating 50 years of the International Passenger Survey

Travel Trends 2010

Celebrating 50 years of the International Passenger Survey The International Passenger Survey (IPS) is 50 years old. In this special edition of Travel Trends, we look back at the survey development with a focus on the travel and tourism and expenditure aspects of the survey. The following statement, marking the inception of the then Passenger Survey, is perhaps best reported verbatim rather than summarised. ‘A new regular sample survey of sea and air passengers travelling between the United Kingdom and the continent of Europe, and on the long air routes beyond Europe, was introduced by the Government Social Survey on behalf of the Board of Trade during 1961 and 1962. This new system of interviewing a small proportion (up to 4 per cent on some routes) of travellers has enabled the important contribution made by tourist and other travellers to the balance of payments to be measured without interfering with the free flow of passengers at our sea and air ports. Nine out of ten of those approached attempted to give all the information asked of them, and more than 80 per cent were able to make an estimate of their expenditure whilst abroad. Over 150,000 successful interviews were made during the year (Board of Trade Journal, Vol. 185 JulyDecember, 1963)’. Since then the IPS has been, and continues to be, a key source of primary data relating to international travel to and from the UK via major airports, seaports and the Channel Tunnel for a wide range of users including government departments, business organisations and academia. The salient aspects of the surveys' evolution are shown in the timeline on the next page.

Survey Timeline 1961

A stratified random sample survey of passengers on long international air routes from London (Heathrow) and Prestwick airports and smaller (unnamed airports) is introduced in the summer by the Central Office of Information for the Board of Trade and other government departments.

1962

A similar survey is introduced on the short sea routes from Dover to the continent in March 1962. The results of the two surveys, together with administrative data about traffic on the long sea routes are used to prepare the first estimates of the Passenger Survey relating to the 1962 calendar year.

1963

Survey is renamed the International Passenger Survey. Sea data is collected from Dover, Folkestone, Harwich, Hull, London, Newhaven, Southampton, Tyne Ports, Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, Plymouth, Fishguard and Holyhead.

1964

Survey is extended to cover long sea routes. Nearly 250,000 successful interviews reported. As with sea passengers, UK residents returning by air from visits abroad are for the first time analysed by the principal country visited rather than country of the airport at which they embarked.

1966

The analysis of purpose of visit is, for the first time, based on three main categories, namely ‘holiday’, ‘business’ and ‘other’. ‘Other’ includes study, visiting friends/relatives, attending sporting events, health or religious purposes and visits for a joint purpose for which no single principal purpose can be distinguished. Survey is supplemented by information from the Central Statistics Office of the Irish Republic covering the routes between the Irish Republic and the UK. Items of expenditure for which direct information is not obtained for the survey (e.g. spending overseas by passengers on cruises and on sea vessels confined to day trips) are estimated independently.

1968

The purpose of visit categories are extended to show separate estimates for holiday, business, staying with friends/family, study and other (miscellaneous reasons e.g. health/religious purposes, attend sporting events).

1980- Specific ‘migration filter shifts’ are introduced for arriving passengers at Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester as 1981 the IPS’s focus on migration increased. 1983 An estimate for purchases by overseas visitors at airport duty-free shops is included in the figures for earnings. 1993

‘Convenience sampling’ tested (but not adopted) to maximise interviewer usage i.e. conducting interviews whenever there is an interviewer available. Data (Travelpac) first made available to external users.

1994

Computer assisted data input (CADI) for recording interview responses introduced. Channel Tunnel sampled for the first time.

1996

IPS conducted by the Office for National Statistics due to a merger of the Central Statistics Office (CSO) and the Office of Population Censuses & Surveys (OPCS). 249,000 successful interviews reported representing about 0.2 per cent of travellers.

1999

Interviewing of passengers on air and sea terminals between UK and the Irish Republic commenced resulting in revisions to weighting and sampling methodology.

2000

Self-completion foreign language questionnaires introduced in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese and Russian.

2005

Prestwick and Liverpool airports added to sample.

2007

Additional information provided in reporting on enlarged European Union. Revised focus for collecting information, moving from collecting some information at the start of the visit to all at the end of the visit.

2008

Doncaster, Bournemouth & Southampton airports and London Heathrow Terminal 5 included in sample.

2009

Revisions to sample design, weighting and imputation methodology (to address recommendations made by the Inter-Departmental Task Force on Migration Statistics). Aberdeen and Belfast airports included in sample. Monthly reporting of overseas travel and tourism extended to include purpose of visit in response to user demand.

2010

Over 300,000 interviews conducted representing about 0.2 per cent of travellers. Feasibility study on digital pen technology as a mode of data collection.

Travel Trends 2010

In words and pictures . . . Travel to and from the UK has grown substantially over the past 50 years (with the notable exception of the past few years). Visits to the UK by overseas residents have grown from 1.9 million to 29.8 million, a 15-fold increase. Visits abroad by UK residents, meanwhile, have grown from 3.3 million in 1961 to 55.6 million in 2010, a 16-fold increase. Despite overall growth, there have been a number of short term slow downs impacted by a variety of factors, too numerous to pinpoint as exact causes. However, Figure 1 plots the number of visits to the UK and abroad together with some of the key UK and global events which may have influenced travel during the past 50 years. Some of these events are discussed in the section ‘Travel trends by decade' later in this report.

Travel Trends 2010

People have changed how they travel. When the IPS started in 1961, air travel was not much more common than sea travel. However, factors such as the emergence of cheaper air fares and quicker access to local airports have given rise to substantial increases in air travel. This contrasts with visits completed by sea which have shown only limited growth since the 1980s. In 1980, 40 per cent of visits to and from the UK were completed by sea but this share had fallen to 30 per cent by 1990 and is now less than 15 per cent (Figure 2).

The growth of more accessible air travel, and cheaper fares, has contributed to more overseas travel and tourism visits of shorter duration. In particular, visits to the UK have seen average length of stay shrink, from 15 days in 1970 to approximately half that length in 2010. Visits abroad by UK residents have also become shorter, but still average 10.9 nights and are showing some signs of getting longer in recent years as people travel to longer-haul destinations (Figure 3).

This shorter length of stay on visits to the UK, together with factors such as a declining proportion of North American residents (who are high spenders) within the total set of visitors to the UK, have contributed to lower earnings. From a position of near parity in 1961, balance of payments associated with travel moved to a surplus to the UK in the 1970s before a strong shift to a deficit (that is, UK residents spending more abroad than overseas residents spending in the UK) which peaked at over £20 billion in 2008 (Figure 4).

Visits to the UK include a substantial proportion of each of the purposes of holiday, business and to visit friends or relatives. The period 1997 to 2002 saw the differences in the numbers relating to these reasons for visit narrow as holidays to the UK fell. The Asian financial crisis (1997), the outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (2001) and the terrorist attacks (2001) were major events that occurred within this period. In recent years, holiday visits have shown a steady growth although those for business and to visit friends or relatives have declined (Figure 5).

UK residents, meanwhile, tend to travel primarily for holidays, as has been the case since the IPS began. Until 2009 the growth in visits abroad for all purposes was generally resilient to challenging economic and social pressures. However, a combination of factors such as difficult economic conditions and unfavourable exchange rates has contributed to a decline over the past two years (Figure 6).

International travel to and from the UK has focused on Europe since the 1960s. Within this generally consistent picture, three sub-trends exist. Firstly, visitors to the UK used to include a higher percentage of North Americans, especially in the 1970s, but the number of visits from North American residents is now lower than it was in 1985 (Figure 7).

For many decades the USA provided more visits than any other country to the UK. However, by 2010 this had fallen as the UK attracted more visits from Europe, especially France, as can be seen from Table 3.

Thirdly, although we see quite clear long-term trends, there have been notable short-term trends in travel between the UK and specific regions of the world, driven by a number of factors of which currency exchange rates appear to have a substantial impact. Some of these instances are discussed in the summary by decade, which follows.

Travel trends by decade This section of the report provides a snapshot of changes in the pattern of travel and some key events which may have impacted on international travel and tourism covering the last five decades. 1960s: Substantial growth of overseas travel and tourism The 1960s could be described as the decade in which overseas travel and tourism ‘took off’, both in terms of a substantial rise in number of visits and an increasing focus on air travel. International travel to and from the UK in the early 60s was split fairly evenly between air and short sea journeys, the exception being business trips which were largely by air (over 80 per cent of business visits from the UK to Western Europe, for example, were airborne). However, this pattern was soon to change as air travel grew throughout the decade buoyed by both changing purposes of travel and technological developments such as the first Boeing 747 flight in 1969. Visits to the UK more than trebled over the decade. 1969, in particular, was a boom year as visits increased by 21 per cent over 1968 figures and expenditure was 27 per cent greater. The effects of the devaluation of sterling in November 1967 appeared to have encouraged a larger number of people to visit the UK and there were particularly large increases in the numbers coming from both the USA and Canada. The average length of stay of overseas visitors to the UK, however, showed a year-on-year decline dropping from 19.8 days in 1964 to 15.5 days in 1969. This can be partly explained by residents from North America including other European destinations in their visit to the UK. Visits abroad by UK residents witnessed a steady increase, up by 143 per cent by 1969, even though currency restrictions (on the amount of cash that one could take abroad) were introduced towards the end of the decade. This growth may be explained by the rapid proliferation of affordable overseas package tours and falling air fares in real terms while British families had increased disposable income and leisure time. The effect of the currency restrictions is believed to mark a shift by UK residents in favour of nearer and cheaper countries. In 1968, this effect was reinforced by changes in the exchange rate levels. As a result, substantially greater numbers went to Spain and fewer to Italy, Austria and Switzerland. There was also a big drop in those going to France, partly because of disturbances there in early summer. The new pattern of travel slowed the growth of expenditure by UK residents abroad during the mid 60s, and by 1968 overall expenditure by overseas residents in the UK was higher than that spent by UK residents abroad. Just under half of the UK’s tourist earnings during this period was attributable to British subjects living abroad, citizens of the Commonwealth or of the Irish Republic.

1970s: The Queen’s Silver Jubilee and a rise in visits to North America For one year in the 1970s (1977) there were more visits to the UK from overseas residents than visits abroad by UK residents, the only year in IPS history that this has occurred. This was due to a combination of rising visits to the UK – holiday visits to the UK in 1977 were up 22 per cent from a year earlier – and a fall in visits abroad. The decade started slowly in terms of growth in visits abroad, despite the fact that currency restrictions imposed on UK residents from the latter part of 1966 were removed in 1970. Visits fell in 1976 (one of the driest summers on record in the UK), and again in 1977 (the year of the Queens’ Silver Jubilee). Beyond 1977, however, visits abroad were increasing by an average of 15 per cent each year until 1980. More holidays were being taken, in particular packages. By 1979 the proportion of visits abroad that were holidays had increased to 63 per cent from 35 per cent in 1975. Packages accounted for 33 per cent of all holidays. Popular destinations were the Irish Republic, Spain and France. The decade was notable for visits to the UK from Europe and other countries rising much more quickly than visits from North America, whereas UK residents started to take a higher proportion of visits to North America. 1977 saw the launch of Freddie Laker’s ‘Skytrain’, a low-cost service between London and New York. Developments that encouraged trips to the USA in the early 1970s include the opening of Disney World in Florida (1971), the devaluation of the US dollar in 1973, the opening of the World Trade Center, and a feeling by some, that the USA was closer through the launch of Concorde in 1976. By the end of the decade, visits to North America had increased five fold to 1.1 million and accounted for 7 per cent of total visits abroad compared with 3 per cent in 1970.

1980s: Package holidays abroad doubled The 1980s saw a change in the pattern of travel. Travellers were beginning to move away from a typical ‘single holiday’ each year to more, shorter trips. In 1980 the average length of stay abroad was 13 days, down from 16 days a decade earlier. The decade started with the royal wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, but visits to the UK from overseas residents fell that year, down 7.8 per cent from a year earlier. They began to grow again in 1983, pushed up by North Americans visiting as sterling weakened substantially by 1985. Growth in visits from Europe, meanwhile, did not occur until the second half of the decade. UK residents were doing the opposite in the first half of the decade and increased their visits to Europe while making fewer trips across the Atlantic as a combination of exchange rate movements, recession and events like the collapse of Laker Airways in 1982 worked against them. 1982 was also the year of the Falklands War in the South Atlantic. However, the second half of the decade saw a different pattern as UK residents increased their visits to all regions and for all purposes. The ongoing development of affordable package tours characterised the decade and packages abroad rose from 6.2 million in 1980 to 12.9 million in 1989. Spain was the favoured destination for many holiday makers, and visits there grew from 2.6 million in 1980 to 5.1 million by 1990. The end of the decade saw some travel tragedies with the Herald of Free Enterprise capsizing in Zeebrugge in 1987 and Pan Am flight 103 being blown up over Lockerbie in 1988. Sea travel fell in 1988 but travel by air saw no notable year-on-year impact.

1990s: The development of regional airports International travel in the 1990s started slowly as the UK economy sat in recession in 1990 and 1991. Inflation and interest rates remained high. The Gulf War in 1991 brought a decline in travel with visits to the UK by overseas residents falling 4.9 per cent in 1991 and visits abroad down 1.1 per cent compared with a year earlier. It took until 1995 for North American residents to return to their pre-Gulf War visit numbers but European residents soon increased their number of trips to the UK in the first half of the decade, as did residents of ‘other countries’. By 1997 the total number of visits to the UK was 25.5 million, up 42 per cent from 1990. However the period 1997 to 1999 brought an increase of only 121,000 visits as exchange rates appeared less favourable to overseas residents. Holiday visits to the UK declined from 11 million in 1996 to 9.8 million three years later. For UK residents, the 1990s continued to be a more dynamic decade for travel. Visits abroad increased from 31.2 million in 1990 to 53.9 million in 1999, a 73 per cent increase. UK residents continued to flock to Spain (visits up 144 per cent), and travel to the USA grew substantially. New routes and airlines increased, with budget airlines gaining a stronger foothold when airline deregulation in the EU was introduced in 1997. A number of regional airports were undergoing substantial development and the volume of international passengers passing through them grew rapidly from the mid 90s. Data from the Civil Aviation Authority shows that passenger traffic at regional airports increased from 47 million passengers in 1995 to 95 million in 2005. A new mode of travel opened in late 1994 in the form of the Channel Tunnel. In its first full year of operation, the tunnel transported 1.8 million overseas residents home following a visit to the UK and 1.9 million UK residents back to the UK. By the end of the decade, nearly 9 million visits were completed through the tunnel, with the majority being by UK residents. In 1998 they completed 6.1 million visits abroad by travelling through the tunnel, a peak from which numbers fell gradually in subsequent years as air travel grew rapidly. International visits continued to become shorter. The IPS recorded an average of 8.3 nights on visits to the UK in 1999 and 10 nights on visits abroad, down from 10.9 and 12.3 respectively in 1990. Despite the trend for shorter trips abroad, UK residents continued to spend and the travel-related deficit grew substantially in the 1990s. Average spend on a visit abroad in 1999 was £409, up 29 per cent from the1990 figure of £317. Overseas residents meanwhile increased their spend per visit by 14 per cent. By 1999 the travel-related deficit to the UK had grown to £9.5 billion from £2.1 billion at the start of the decade.

2000s: Global economic recession and a slowdown in overseas travel and tourism The 2000s are remembered for setbacks to travel and tourism with visits to or from the UK at the end of the decade being only slightly higher than at the start. International travel was affected by the outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in the UK and the September 11th terrorist attacks in the USA in 2001. A large fall in the number of visits by overseas residents of 9.4 per cent occurred in 2001 from the year before. Expenditure in the same year was down by 12 per cent. The number of UK residents’ visits abroad however was relatively unaffected, increasing by 2.5 per cent with spending also rising by 4.5 per cent. The decline in visits to the UK reversed from 2002 and a record 32.8 million overseas visits to the UK were made in 2007, although earnings have continued to increase since then. The fall in the value of the pound is felt to have created additional demand for UK retail goods by overseas visitors. By 2006/7, the UK economy was strong. The expansion of online booking to purchase holiday travel also enabled travellers to acquire the most competitive rates from the comfort of their homes. UK residents made a peak of 69.5 million visits abroad in 2006 although a record expenditure of £36.8 billion was reached in 2008. Visits to friends or relatives grew substantially, reflecting changing population profiles. For example, the number of visits to friends or relatives in the UK by residents of Poland grew from 163 thousand in 2004 to 463 thousand in 2009, and over the same period such visits to Poland from UK residents grew from 139 thousand to 1.0 million. The global economic recession started in late 2007 and took a steep downward turn the following year, bringing a slowdown in the demand for international travel from late 2008. The downward trend was exacerbated in some countries due to the outbreak of H1N1 influenza virus (swine flu) and UK residents were also discouraged from travelling by weak currency exchange rates. They responded by cutting back substantially on travel. By 2009, visits abroad had decreased by 10.4 million (15 per cent) from 69 million in 2008. Holiday trips taken abroad were down 15 per cent. Spending was also down 14 per cent. Overseas residents’ visits to the UK declined by 6.3 per cent although expenditure increased marginally by 1.6 per cent. Business travel in particular was hit hard. From a peak of 9.1 million visits in 2006, UK residents going abroad on a business trip declined to 6.9 million by 2009. Likewise, the number of overseas residents to the UK on a business trip fell from a record high of 9 million in 2006 to 6.6 million in 2009. Between 2008 and 2009, business trips to the UK fell 19 per cent and those abroad fell 23 per cent. Overall, the change in visits between 2000 and 2009 was an increase of just 3.1 per cent for both UK residents’ visit abroad and 18.6 per cent for overseas visitors to the UK.

Travel Trends 2010

Travel Trends 2010 The economic pressures experienced at the end of the 2000s continued to affect overseas travel and tourism in 2010. The UK economy entered the year on the back of recession and debt crises were experienced in the eurozone, in particular Ireland and Greece. Although sterling strengthened slightly from 2009 against the euro and the US dollar, currency exchange rates were substantially less favourable for UK residents travelling abroad (and vice versa for overseas residents visiting the UK) than they were a few years earlier. For example, £1 bought an average €1.17 across 2010, compared with €1.46 in 2007, and bought $1.55 compared with $2.00 in 2007. 2010 also saw a number of disruptions to international travel, mostly affecting air travel. The year started with port closures due to bad weather in January, followed by a closure of airspace in April and May due to the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic ash cloud. It ended with further airport closures due to bad weather in December. In spring and summer there was a series of strikes by British Airways cabin crew. Unsurprisingly, overall travel and tourism fell, mostly visits abroad by UK residents, although there were also some areas of strength in overseas travel and tourism in 2010. The main trends are discussed below.

Overseas Travel and Tourism fell but was more stable in the second half of the year (Figures 9 and 10, tables 1.01 to 1.04, 2.01, 3.01, 4.02, 5.02) Overseas travel and tourism fell in 2010, albeit at a slower rate than in 2009. Visits to the UK by overseas residents in 2010 fell 0.3 per cent to 29.8 million and visits abroad by UK residents fell 5.2 per cent to 55.6 million. Despite the overall decline, there were signs of stabilisation or recovery in the second half of the year. Figure 9 shows percentage changes in visits to the UK in each quarter over the past three years relative to the same quarter a year earlier. It highlights an increase in visits in quarters 3 and 4 2010.

Travel disruption: The Eyjafjallajökull ash cloud (Tables 2.08 and 3.08) Ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland closed large areas of airspace in Western and Northern Europe for a number of days in April 2010, and caused further delays and uncertainty about air travel into May. Many passengers were stranded abroad and extra tunnel and sea services were put on by operators in order to transport travellers home. UK residents who, in comparison with overseas residents visiting the UK, take a higher proportion of travel by air, were impacted most by the disruption. During quarter 2 the number of visits abroad completed by air fell 13.1 per cent from a year earlier whereas those completed by sea rose by 17.3 per cent. The fall in visits completed by air will have included people who changed or put off their travel plans and people who travelled out by plane but returned home by another form of transport. A record number of holiday visits to the UK (Tables 1.03 and 2.03) Despite the small percentage fall in total visits to the UK in 2010, holiday visits increased to a record level. There were 11.7 million holiday visits, up from 11.4 million in 2009, which was a record itself. The increase came from residents of Europe and ‘other countries’ whereas holidays to the UK by North American residents fell by 0.08 million in 2009 to 1.3 million. This figure is 42 per cent lower than that recorded a decade earlier (the figure in 2000 was 2.2 million). The number of package holidays (as defined on IPS as visits for which accommodation and travel were paid together and can’t be separated) to the UK had been subdued in 2008 and 2009 but was more resilient in 2010 with the number of packages rising by 0.1 million to 2.0 million, the third highest figure recorded since 2000.

Business visits stabilised but visits to friends or relatives fell (Figures 11 and 12, tables 1.03,1.04) While holidays to the UK continued to grow, business visits stabilised following substantial declines in 2009. There were 6.8 million business visits to the UK in 2010 which represents an increase of 3.3 per cent from 2009 but a fall of 25 per cent from a peak figure of 9.0 million in 2006. Business visits abroad fell by 3.6 per cent in 2010 following a much more substantial fall in 2009, but slipped to the lowest level since the mid 1990s.

Visits to friends or relatives have been relatively subdued in recent years following ongoing increases and they fell in 2010, in both directions. Those to the UK slipped from 8.8 million in 2009 to 8.4 million and those abroad by UK residents fell from 11.6 million in 2009 to 10.8 million. Visits to London increased after a decline in 2009 (Figure 13, tables 2.16, 4.13) The number of visits involving an overnight stay in London increased from 14.2 million in 2009 to 14.7 million in 2010. This recovers some losses in recent years and leaves the number of visits to London down 5.7 per cent from the high of 15.6 million in 2006. The increase in 2010 was driven by European residents, who made 9.7 million visits to the capital, up from 9.3 million a year earlier. This represents the highest number of visits from Europe to London on record.

London is by far the most visited city in the UK by overseas residents, attracting more than ten times the number of overnight visits than Edinburgh which is the second most visited. The top 20 towns/cities (excluding London) in the UK visited by overseas residents in 2010 is charted in Figure 13 alongside the numbers from 2009. There are no substantial changes from 2009, with the top 5 most visited cities (and most of the top 20) remaining in the same order.

Visits to non-European destinations by UK residents stabilised in 2010 (Table 1.06) The decline in visits abroad by UK residents in 2010 was driven by a fall of 3.4 million visits (7.4 per cent) to Europe, from 45.9 million in 2009 to 42.6 million in 2010. Visits to North America, meanwhile, were unchanged at 3.7 million and the estimated number of visits to other countries rose from 9.0 million to 9.3 million, an increase buoyed to some extent by an update to the IPS method of estimating the number of cruises on foreign-owned ships terminating at a UK seaport which added nearly 0.2 million to the ‘other countries’ estimate.

Travel Trends 2010

Mexico returned to favour in 2010 (Figure 14, Table 3.10) Mexico was reported as the centre of the ‘swine flu’ outbreak in 2009. Visits to Mexico (defined as completed visits abroad, on which Mexico was the main country of visit) fell that year to 198 thousand from 334 thousand in 2008. However, in 2010 Mexico returned to favour as a destination for UK residents, and the total of 314 thousand visits was within 10 per cent of the 2008 figure. Portugal also experienced a sharp fall in visits from UK residents in 2009, which was followed in 2010 by a small increase of 3.2 per cent. Visits by UK residents to some more traditional holiday destinations within the eurozone such as Spain, Italy, Greece and Cyprus saw continued falls in 2010 (each down by more than 10 per cent from a year earlier) whereas visits to medium-haul destinations outside the eurozone such as Turkey (up 11.9 per cent) and Tunisia (up 15.9 per cent) grew from a year earlier. Despite increases in visits to countries such as Tunisia and Turkey, Spain and France continue to be by far the most visited countries by UK residents, accounting for over a third of visits abroad between them. Spain attracted 10.4 million in 2010 and France 9.1 million. The USA replaced the Irish Republic in third place, the former attracting 3.2 million visits compared with the Irish Republic’s 3.0 million. Visits to the Irish Republic fell quite markedly in 2010, down from 3.5 million in 2009.

Visits (Millions)

This report includes a list (in Table 5.12) of countries visited by residents of specific regions of the UK (London, rest of England, Scotland and Wales). This table highlights that residents of London made 1.1 million visits to Spain in 2010 but a substantially higher 2.0 million visits to France, whereas residents of Scotland are much more likely to visit Spain (0.9 million visits) than France (0.3 million). In fact, Scottish residents make nearly as many visits to the USA as to France. Residents of Wales, meanwhile, have a pattern of visiting specific parts of the world that is more in line with the UK average.

Travel Trends 2010

UK residents’ length of stay abroad increased but longer-stay visits to the UK declined (Tables 2.12, 2.14, 3.12, 3.14) The stronger emphasis on visits to longer-haul destinations by UK residents has brought an increase in average length of stay which, following falls in each decade from the 1960s to the 2000s, has grown from 9.9 nights in 2007 to 10.9 nights in 2010. The ongoing fall in average length of stay on visits to the UK by overseas residents, meanwhile, continued. In 2010 the average stay was 7.6 nights, down slightly from 7.7 nights in 2009, but down substantially from 8.4 nights in 2006 and 15 nights in 1970. Of note is a decline of 25 per cent since 2006 in visits for 28 days or more, down from 1.8 million to 1.3 million. The travel-related deficit remained broadly unchanged in 2010 (Figure 15, tables 1.01 to 1.04) It was highlighted earlier in this report that the deficit to the UK associated with overseas travel grew quite rapidly from the mid 1990s to mid 2000s. However, the deficit fell in 2009 and stayed broadly unchanged in 2010 as the heavier percentage fall in visits abroad (compared to the fall in visits to the UK) was balanced by UK residents tending to take slightly longer trips. Figure 15 plots the 2010 surplus or deficit associated with overseas travel for various purposes and regions of the world. It highlights that there is a deficit associated with each of the three regions of the world reported on, and the three main purposes for visit. To illustrate how things have changed, the chart also plots figures for 1990 when there was a balance of payments surplus associated with travel between the UK and both North America and other countries, and in relation to visits for business and to visit friends or relatives.

If a respondent case within that sample has an unusual profile it is possible that the estimate will stand out as particularly high or low for the reporting period. This was the case for estimated spending by residents of Mexico in Q2 2010.

Note: In some reporting instances the sample size that the estimate is based on is relatively small.

This was the case for estimated spending by residents of Mexico in Q2 2010.

Appendix A – Definitions on which this report is based 1.

The figures relate to the number of visits, not the number of visitors. Those entering or leaving the United Kingdom more than once in the same period are counted on each visit. The count of visits relates to UK residents returning to this country and to overseas residents leaving it.

2.

Day trips are visits that do not involve an overnight stay. Day trips abroad made by UK residents as well as day trips to the UK made by overseas residents are included in the figures for visits and spending. Note 14 refers to overseas residents in transit through the UK.

3.

An overseas visitor is a person who, being permanently resident in a country outside the UK, visits the UK for a period of less than 12 months. UK citizens resident overseas for 12 months or more coming home on leave are included in this category. Visits abroad are visits for a period of less than 12 months by people permanently resident in the UK (who may be of foreign nationality).

4.

When a resident of the UK has visited more than one country, spending and stay for the entire visit are allocated to the country stayed in for the longest time.

5.

Visits for miscellaneous purposes include those for study, to attend sporting events, for shopping, health, religious or other purposes, together with visits for more than one purpose when no one purpose predominates (for example visits both on business and on holiday). Overseas visitors staying overnight in the UK en route to other destinations are also included in the miscellaneous purposes category.

6.

Estimates relating to tourist flows across the land border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland are, for convenience, included in the figures for sea. Where not shown separately, flows through the Channel Tunnel are also included under the figures for sea. Also excluded from the regional analysis tables (except the ‘Total’ section) are all visits that did not include an overnight stay in the UK. Visits by overseas residents to Northern Ireland, although included in the ‘total’ column, are not separately analysed. More than one region can be visited by an individual while in the UK so the total of the visits to all the regions will be greater than the total number of visits to the UK as a whole.

7.

Adjustments are made to the reported cost of an inclusive tour so that only the amount earned by the country of visit is included (for example accommodation costs and car hire). This estimate is then added to an individual’s spending to give the total spending in the country of visit (see also note 9).

8.

Length of stay for UK residents covers the time spent outside the UK, including the journey. For overseas residents it refers to the time spent within the UK.

Office for National Statistics 120

Appendix A

Travel Trends 2010

Spending figures cover the same categories of traveller as the number of visits figures except that the figures for overseas residents additionally include the spending of same day transit passengers. Spending also includes foreign exchange earnings and expenditure due to travel between the Channel Islands and other (non-UK) countries.

10.

11.

Spending reported in this report and other ONS Overseas Travel and Tourism publications covers money spent in association with overseas travel and tourism, but excludes fares for travel to or from the UK. For any traveller on an inclusive tour, an estimate of the return fare is deducted from the total tour price. Inclusions and exclusions are driven by Balance of Payments definitions, and key specifics are as follows: o

Only money sourced outside the country of visit is included. Thus, any money earned and subsequently spent by an overseas resident on a visit to the UK is excluded.

o

In addition to money spent during the visit, certain expenditure before or after the visit is included in spend estimates. Such expenditure includes items such as deposits, car hire, theatre tickets, short course fees, tickets for internal travel in the country of visit, travel insurance if bought prior to this particular visit.

o

Purchase for personal export of large items such as cars or boats is excluded from expenditure. However, if the car was bought abroad and not brought back to the UK, the spending would be included.

o

Cost of any house purchase abroad is excluded. Any money spent abroad for the purpose of improving or renovating a property is included however, as is any expenditure abroad on legal fees to do with a house purchase.

o

Expenditure by UK residents on board UK-owned cruise ships is excluded, but expenditure on visits ashore during a cruise is included.

o

Any money spent abroad (e.g. on medical treatment) which will be refunded through an insurance company inside the country of visit will be excluded.

o

Private school fees are excluded.

An estimate for purchases by overseas visitors at airport duty-free shops is included in the figures for spending. Such purchases on British carriers are excluded.

Exclusions The following groups are excluded from the tables in this publication: 12.

Trippers who cross the Channel, North Sea or Irish Sea but do not alight from the boat (called stay-on-board).

13.

Migrants and persons travelling to take up prearranged employment, together with military or diplomatic personnel, merchant seamen and airline personnel on duty.

Office for National Statistics 122

Appendix B

Travel Trends 2010

Appendix B – Concepts used in this report Key concepts and variables Flow Respondents in the IPS are mainly identified and analysed by their ‘flow’. Flow is described as the direction of travel of the visitor combined with whether they are a UK resident or an overseas resident. There are, therefore, four main flows on the IPS: • • • •

overseas residents departing from the UK UK residents departing from the UK overseas residents arriving in the UK, and UK residents arriving in the UK

Only data on overseas residents departing from the UK and UK residents arriving in the UK have been used in this publication. This is because the IPS interviews for these travellers take place at the end of their visits when factual information about visit duration and spending is available. This is felt to be more complete and reliable than the information gathered at the beginning of a trip when intentions regarding duration and spending may not prove to be accurate. Number of visits The data in this report relate to the number of visits not the number of visitors. Those entering or leaving the UK more than once in the same period are counted on each visit. Purpose of visit The IPS records the many different reasons people have for making a visit. These are combined into four main analysis categories: • • • •

Holiday Business Visiting friends or relatives (VFR), and Miscellaneous

The categories describe the main purpose of the visit and, where it is not possible to determine this, the respondents’ reason for the visit is categorised as ‘miscellaneous’. People migrating (to or from the UK) or travelling as crew of aircraft, ships or trains are excluded from analyses in this publication. The IPS collects information on whether tourists travel independently or on some form of package trip. As well as providing data on all holiday visits, this report also provides information on those who are on package holidays, which are referred to as ‘inclusive tours’. The business category includes conference and trade fair visits, and those who made their visits for study, medical treatment or shopping appear in the miscellaneous category. More detailed

Office for National Statistics 123

Appendix B

Travel Trends 2010

information on the main reason for visits (such as attending conferences or trade fairs) is available from the IPS datasets (see Appendix G). Some analyses show data for ‘leisure’ and ‘business’ visits, where the ‘leisure’ category includes all visits for holidays, visits to friends or relatives, and visits for miscellaneous purposes. Country of residence or visit For overseas residents visiting the UK, this is the main country of residence of the visitor. For UK residents travelling abroad, it is the main country of visit. Although the IPS collects information on all individual countries of the world, many countries outside of EU Europe are shown within groups rather than individually. It would not be practical to show all countries separately but also for many countries, sample sizes are too small to give accurate estimates. On 1 May 2004, 10 new countries joined the EU and on 1 January 2007 two additional countries joined. In the tables in this report, figures are given for the original 15 member states (EU 15), the 25 EU member states (EU 25), and the 27 current EU member states (EU27). In years previous to 2004, EU Europe is defined as consisting of the countries which were EU members during the year in question. It should be noted that for the years before the reunification of Germany in 1991, data on the then East Germany are not included in the figures for Germany, and therefore are not included within the figures for EU Europe. Appendix B shows how the countries of the world are grouped into the areas used in this report. A larger number of countries than appear in this publication can be identified in the IPS datasets. UK region of stay The IPS records which towns overseas residents stayed in when they visited the UK. However, due to the very large number of towns in the UK it would not be meaningful to produce analyses of visits by the full range of towns. In this publication, visits information for overseas residents is therefore mainly shown at county or unitary authority, and main UK region levels although a table of the top 50 towns visited is also included. In 2007 a more accurate approach to coding towns was employed in the survey, based on a more comprehensive code frame of towns and boroughs. This may result is a slight discontinuity from previous years and care should therefore be exercised when comparing results with earlier years. Care must be taken when using the regional information, as the numbers of visits to separate UK areas cannot simply be added together to form larger regions. This is because a person may stay in more than one area of the UK during a single visit. As a result, the numbers of visits to smaller areas do not sum to the figures given for larger regions in the regional tables in this publication. For example, a person visiting London, Windsor and Aberdeen in a single visit to the UK would appear as one visit to London, one to Berkshire and one to Grampian. However, the same visitor would be recorded as a single visit in the England total and a visit in the Scotland total, and as just one visit in the UK total. Although visits cannot be summed across UK regions, the amount of spending and the number of nights stayed can.

Travel Trends 2010

UK region of residence For UK residents, data are presented by the region of residence, that is London, the rest of England, Scotland and Wales. Mode of transport Until 1994 air and sea were the only two main modes of transport to and from the UK. The Channel Tunnel between the UK and France began operating towards the end of 1994. Information on passengers using the tunnel is available on the IPS from the fourth quarter of 1994. Journeys by sea and tunnel are further analysed to show whether a vehicle was taken on the trip and, if so, the type of vehicle that was used. Age and sex Respondents’ age and sex are collected in the IPS interview. Questions on exact age are not asked on the IPS and instead respondents are classified into age groups as it is felt that some people may not give accurate answers, and age groups are normally sufficient for users’ needs. All travellers, including children under 16, are eligible to be interviewed on the IPS. If the sampled person is under 16, where possible the interview is carried out with the child after having first received permission from a parent, guardian or responsible adult travelling with them (for example, a school teacher if they are on a school trip). If the child is too young to complete the interview themselves, proxy information is collected from the parent, guardian or responsible adult, wherever possible. Expenditure Expenditure for both UK and overseas residents exclude amounts spent on fares to and from the UK. Visits and expenditure information regarding travel to or from the Irish Republic for years up to and including 1998 are included in the figures for the EU but do not appear separately in the rows and columns of some tables. Consequently, rows and columns in the tables may not always sum to the figures shown for the whole EU. Expenditure data relating to the Channel Islands are included within the figures for the Europe but are not shown separately. This means that spending shown for the individual countries of Europe will not always sum to the figures shown for the whole of Europe. Expenditure data of overseas visitors transiting the UK, but not staying overnight, are included within the figure shown for ‘All purpose’ of travel, but are not shown separately. This means that spending shown for overseas residents’ visits by individual purpose of visit will not always sum to the figure shown for ‘All purposes’.

Travel Trends 2010

Travellers to and from the Irish Republic There is a major discontinuity in the time series shown in this publication between years up to and including 1998 and subsequent years. From the second quarter of 1999, the IPS began interviewing on air and sea routes between the UK and the Irish Republic. For the years up to and including 1998, estimates of visitor numbers, their spending and nights stayed on routes between the UK and the Irish Republic and their characteristics were based on data provided by the Central Statistical Office of the Irish Republic. From 1999, and for subsequent years, this report uses IPS interview data. To enable 1999 data to be analysed, data for the first quarter of 1999 were constructed, based upon interviews conducted in the first quarter of 2000, but weighted to the traffic volumes of the first quarter of 1999. Analysis of the interview data from 1999 onwards has shown that a large number of Irish visitors who would previously have been defined as tourists to the UK were transiting through the UK on their overseas visits. Also, the data for 1999 onwards showed that a number of European and Commonwealth visitors made combined visits to the UK and the Irish Republic; these visits were previously recorded as visits from residents of the Irish Republic. These factors combined to reduce the number of overseas visitors to the UK from 1999 onwards, mainly the estimates of visitors from the Irish Republic, but they also increased the number of visitors from certain other countries, particularly Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands. The data from the IPS Irish interviews also affected estimates of spending and nights. These showed that the previous estimates of spending per visit of Irish visitors to the UK were overstated, while estimates of UK residents’ spending per visit in the Irish Republic were previously understated. The interview-based details of visitors from the Irish Republic have enabled more completed duration of stay and regional breakdowns to be produced from 1999 onwards. This has led to discontinuities between 1998 and 1999 in the duration of stay and regional profile from the IPS. In summary, the major effect resulting from IPS interviewing on routes to and from the Irish Republic was to improve the quality and detail of estimates from 1999 onwards. The discontinuities from this change affected time series estimates of visitors to and from the Irish Republic, with some smaller effects for other countries.

Appendix C – The IPS: Methodology and coverage Background The International Passenger Survey (IPS) is a large multi-purpose survey that collects information from passengers as they enter or leave the UK. It is carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for a range of public and private sector organisations. In particular, the survey provides figures used for the travel account of the balance of payments, international migration statistics, and for informing decisions on tourism policy. The data from the survey are widely used across and outside of government to provide detailed information on the numbers and types of people travelling to and from the UK. Results are published regularly by ONS on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. More detailed analyses are possible through ONS, marketing agents appointed by ONS or by downloading the Travelpac database from the Office for National Statistics website. Travellers passing through passport control are randomly selected for interview and all interviews are conducted on a voluntary and anonymous basis. Interviewing is carried out throughout the year and in 2010, 316,000 interviews were recorded. The overall response rate (complete and partial interviews) for the 2010 survey was 81 per cent. Since the IPS began in 1961, its coverage has been extended so that it includes all the main air, sea and tunnel ports or routes into and out of the UK. The only routes excluded from the survey are sea routes to and from the Channel Islands, the land border with the Irish Republic, and cruise ships travelling to and from the UK. About 95 per cent of passengers entering and leaving the UK are covered by the survey. The remainder are either passengers travelling at night, when interviewing is suspended, or on those routes too small in volume or too expensive to be covered. The IPS data are weighted to produce national estimates of all international travellers to and from the UK on a quarterly basis. Although some monthly data from the IPS are also published, a single quarter is the minimum period over which most detailed analyses of the data can be made. Annual national estimates are created by combining the four quarters of the year. The calculation of the weights on the IPS takes into account its complex sample design and information provided from other sources on, among other things, the non-sampled routes and time periods. For example, estimates of spending by travellers to and from the Channel Islands are provided by the Economic Advisor’s Office in Jersey, and the Central Statistical Office in the Irish Republic provides information on travellers crossing the land border with Northern Ireland. Overview of the survey design The IPS is based on face-to-face interviews with a sample of passengers travelling via the principal airports, sea routes and the Channel Tunnel. The number of interviews conducted in 2010 was 316,000, which represented about 0.2 per cent of all travellers. This large sample size allows reliable estimates to be produced for various groups of passengers despite the low proportion of travellers interviewed.

Office for National Statistics 127

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

The IPS sample is stratified to ensure it is representative by mode of travel (air, sea or tunnel), port or route, and time of day. Interviews are conducted throughout the year. The frequency of sampling within each stratum is varied according to the variability of tourist expenditure and the cost of interviewing. For example, where the expenditure quoted on a particular route varies greatly across respondents, a higher sampling frequency is used to enable a more satisfactory estimate to be produced. (For further details on the sample design, see the Sampling section below.) Some questions on the survey are asked of all of the passengers interviewed, while others are restricted to certain specific sub-groups. Information on the spending and length of stay of UK residents abroad and overseas residents in the UK is only collected on the return leg of a visit. This is because actual spending and length of stay are required, and these may differ from the respondents’ intentions when they start their visit. In 2010, 52,000 interviews were carried out with overseas residents departing from the UK and 67,000 with UK residents arriving back from abroad. The details collected on the survey are used by ONS, along with other sources of information, to produce overall national estimates of the number and expenditure of different types of travellers. A complex weighting procedure is used to do this that takes into account various factors in order to improve the estimates. (For further details of the weighting procedure, see Producing national estimates below). The collection of the IPS data The key to producing reliable results from the IPS lies initially in the way the data are collected. Great emphasis is therefore placed upon the IPS interviewers to ensure they are able to capture data efficiently and accurately. Nationally, IPS data are collected by a team of over 200 interviewers who are recruited and trained specifically to work on the IPS. All IPS interviewing staff undergo an intensive initial training course and, once qualified, are regularly briefed and monitored by a support team of team leaders and site managers. Some interviewing teams will cover a single large port, for example Heathrow, while others may cover several smaller ports which are generally in the same part of the UK. Interviews are carried out on all days of the year, apart from Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Typically, an IPS shift will consist of a group of between eight and ten interviewers led by a team leader. One of the team will act as a counter to ensure that people are correctly selected for interview according to the sampling intervals appropriate for that port. The team leader is responsible for the organisation and running of the shift and is available to offer advice to team members when required. Due to the layout and facilities at some seaports it is not always possible to interview passengers as they arrive. In such cases, IPS staff travel to seaports in France and Ireland to select their subject and then conduct interviews which take place either at the overseas ports of departure, or on board the vessels returning to the UK. Almost all IPS interviews take place on a face-to-face basis with the responses being initially recorded on paper forms. Shortly after the interview has taken place, the data are transferred to a computer system in which electronic checks are made of the data being input. In recent years some ‘self completion’ questionnaires have been used at times where an interviewer has been

Office for National Statistics 128

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

unable to conduct an interview because of language difficulties. The self-completion questionnaires are produced in 13 languages but they do not cover the complete range of questions asked in a full IPS interview. The forms are designed to be as simple and user friendly as possible and aim to capture the essential data items which will be needed to produce reliable estimates of tourism. Once the interview information has been captured electronically, it is transmitted to ONS headquarters where a series of further quality and accuracy checks are made on the data before they will be ready for processing and the publication of analysis. In recent years, collection of data has been made more difficult owing to the changes in both the way airports and seaports operate and through the differing behaviour patterns of travellers. Many airports now operate several gateways for clients and all these have to be covered by an interviewing team. Many passengers arriving want to use their mobile phones once they land. It is IPS policy not to intrude or interrupt when we want to interview such people and so these people although selected for inclusion in the IPS may not be interviewed. Sampling The IPS uses a multi-stage sample design. The sampling for air, sea and tunnel travel is carried out separately, although the underlying principle for each mode of travel is broadly similar. In the absence of a sampling frame of travellers, time shifts or sea crossings are selected at the first stage, and travellers are then systematically chosen at fixed intervals from a random start within these shifts or crossings at the second stage. The details of the sampling scheme for each individual mode of travel are described below. – Air routes For air routes, time periods are sampled. Shifts are selected for the first stage at the 12 largest air sites (that is the five terminals at Heathrow Airport, the two terminals at Gatwick Airport, three terminals at Manchester International Airport and Stansted and Luton Airports). These are done in such a way that the numbers of shifts are balanced between mornings and afternoons, and days of the week within any quarter. At the second stage, passengers are counted as they cross a predetermined line and every nth one is interviewed. The sampling interval, n, differs between sites and involves a first stage sampling rate used to screen respondents for migration purposes and a second stage sampling rate used for overseas travel and tourism interviews. Departing passengers are sampled at a higher rate than arriving ones because the expenditure information for overseas residents visiting the UK is more variable than that for UK residents returning from visits abroad. A small number of shifts every quarter are also conducted at other smaller international airports in the UK. However, the sample size is insufficient to provide accurate estimates for most of these airports individually. Those airports with less than about 250,000 passenger movements per quarter are usually excluded from the survey altogether on the grounds of cost effectiveness, but traffic at these sites is taken into account when producing national estimates. – Sea routes Sea routes carrying 50,000 passengers a year or more are generally included in the IPS sample. At some seaports, passengers are sampled and interviewed on the quayside as they embark or

Office for National Statistics 129

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

disembark, while at others IPS interviewers travel on the boat itself with interviewing being carried out on board. The choice between interviewing on the quayside or on crossings is made on practical grounds such as cost, safety and permission. Where interviewing is conducted on the quayside, the sample is designed to select shifts that are balanced across different days of the week and times of day within a quarter, with each individual shift covering several sailings. Where interviews are conducted on crossings, a predetermined number of return crossings are selected for each route, spread across time of day and day of week each quarter. As for air sampling, sea passengers are selected at fixed sampling intervals from a random start within each shift or crossing. The IPS also samples long haul ships capable of carrying more than 200 passengers at the port in Southampton. – Tunnel routes The method used for the tunnel routes is different for Eurostar passenger trains and for Eurotunnel vehicle shuttles. The method for passenger trains is similar to that for air travel; time shifts are selected and then passengers are selected at fixed intervals within the time shift. Passengers are interviewed after crossing a predetermined line at Ebbsfleet, St. Pancras, and Ashford International stations on arrival or departure. In contrast, for vehicle shuttles, crossings are randomly selected and interviewing takes place on board the shuttles themselves. Because of time constraints, only a certain number of interviews can be carried out on any individual shuttle and the sampling interval used is therefore dependent on traffic volumes. Producing national estimates Once the information has been collected from respondents, the survey data are weighted to produce national estimates, which are then published on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. The basis of the weighting of IPS survey data is that the total set of respondents interviewed at a port or route is weighted up/calibrated to passenger traffic known to have passed through that port or route in the period in question. The known passenger traffic information is provided to the IPS team by CAA, Department for Transport, Eurostar, Eurotunnel, BAA and a number of airports themselves. The weighting approach incorporates a number of stages which take account of all passengers selected for interview. Weighting is conducted for each port/route and direction of travel combination, employing the same principles at each one. The stages, listed in order of application, are as follows. Stage 1 A Design weight is employed, to account for the probability of sampling this passenger using the first-stage sampling rate.

Office for National Statistics 130

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

The calculation compares the number of shifts or crossings sampled (at each port/route and direction of travel combination) with the number of shifts or crossings that could have been sampled for that combination in the period. In addition it takes into account the first-stage sampling rate. For example, in a case where a contact was sampled at a port with the following details:  10 shifts were run in the period  100 shifts could have been run in the period  the contact was sampled employing a first-stage sampling rate of 20 (that is, every 20th passenger was selected) The Design weight for this contact would be 200, calculated as (100/10) x 20. As well as port/route and direction, this weight incorporates weekday or weekend, and am, pm or night as weighting strata. Stage 2 A Non-response weight factor is employed to take account of contacts selected for interview but who were subsequently not interviewed, either because it was not possible to contact them or they refused to participate. The weight is applied at each port/route and direction of travel combination and also incorporates weekday versus weekend as weighting strata. It involves uplifting ‘complete’ and ‘minimums’ cases by a factor calculated as 

the sum of weights applied to all ‘completes’, ‘minimums’ and ‘non-response’ records



divided by the sum of ‘completes’ and ‘minimums’ at that port/route and direction of travel combination

Stage 3 A second Design weight is applied to account for the second-phase of the sample design and relates to the sub-sampling of non-migrants. The weight for this factor is simply equal to: 

the ratio second-stage sample interval: first-stage sample interval for non-migrants, and



1 for migrants

Stage 4 A weight factor is applied for discarding minimum respondents. Minimum interviews are discarded in this step of the weighting, with other cases weighted up to compensate. The purpose of applying this weight is that it is possible that the profile of minimums might be skewed to certain nationalities or residents of certain countries (for example driven by language difficulties meaning that only minimal information is provided to the interviewer). This weighting step works to the same principle as the non-response weight. It utilises port/route and direction of travel as weighting strata. Stage 5 Weighting to sampling frame. Here the population (that is, passenger traffic) or the ports and routes covered by the sampling frame are used to weight the data. The population excludes interlining passengers (those neither entering nor leaving the UK from this port, that is, simply changing international flights) and out-of-hours traffic (that is, arriving or departing outside the

Office for National Statistics 131

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

hours covered by the IPS interviewing at that port). The weight is applied at each port/route and direction of travel combination. Stage 6 Weighting for frame under coverage. This extends the above population weighting to compensate for not covering certain ports and times of day (out-of-hours traffic) in the survey sample. The weight utilises port/route and direction of travel as weighting strata and also incorporates region of the world that traffic has come from/gone to. The weight reflects the fact that flights to and from some parts of the world are more likely than others to arrive or take off at night when no interviewing is conducted at airports. Stage 7 Weighting for observed imbalance. This step is used to correct an observed imbalance between the number of non-migrants entering and leaving the UK. These are applied as a series of fixed factors, relating to direction of travel, port/route and country/residence. It has been noted since spring 2009 that there has been an increase in the proportion of respondents in the IPS overseas travel and tourism sample who are starting their visit compared to the proportion ending their visit. This proportion of the two types of traveller in the sample defines the estimates of travel and tourism. There is no clear reason for this trend and ONS has taken steps to calibrate its overseas travel and tourism estimates with external data, notably estimates from surveying conducted at departure gates at main airports in the UK by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and e-borders data. This work has shown general consistency between the datasets with the result that the factors used in the imbalance weight have been retained. However, this is an area of ongoing research. Stage 8 A final weight is applied, which combines each of the weighting stages listed above. Imputation Where the responses for key items of interest are missing from the survey data for an individual record the values are imputed. Imputation is applied to the following items:  Length of stay  Cost of fare (expressed in terms of cost of the single fare for the respondent)  Spend  Town of stay

Office for National Statistics 132

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

For each of length of stay, cost of fare and spend, a value is calculated for the survey record which had the information missing. The IPS employs a mean-value within class imputation procedure where the missing value is replaced with the average value for records with similar characteristics. The matching variables used for each of these items are: Length of stay: Cost of fare:

Spend:

Country of visit/visiting from Purpose of visit Port in UK travelled to/from Overseas port travelled to/from Month of travel Operator Country of visit/visiting from Duration Purpose of visit

Where the respondent has travelled on a package holiday, the cost of the fare is imputed and then deducted from the total cost of the package, and the residual cost (after removal of a percentage to cover travel agent fees) is assigned to expenditure. Overseas residents staying in the UK are asked about their total expenditure in the UK. This information is then imputed across the towns stayed in, proportionate to the length of stay in each one. It is recognised that people tend to spend more when they stay in London than in other towns in the UK and therefore an uplift index is calculated and applied to the spend allocated to London in cases where the respondent stayed in both London and other towns in the UK. In cases where an overseas resident hasn’t given details of all the towns in the UK they stayed in, an uplift is applied to towns stayed in by similar records, using the same principles as outlined above for the imputation of stay, fares and spend. Seasonal adjustment The number of travellers and their spending both have a clear seasonal pattern, with more visits and spending in the summer than in the winter. Statistical techniques are used by ONS with the package X-12-ARIMA to produce seasonally adjusted figures. These figures show visits and spending with an estimate for the seasonal component removed. They allow more meaningful comparisons to be made between months and quarters of the year and help to identify underlying trends. More details on seasonal adjustment procedures can be obtained from the IPS Branch of ONS. Constant prices Usually, spending by overseas residents in the UK and UK residents abroad grows each year as the price of goods and services rise. Constant price figures are calculated by ONS to show real spending across years with the effects of price inflation removed.

Office for National Statistics 133

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

For overseas residents’ expenditure in the UK, an index is created by splitting spending into its component parts (accommodation, meals etc.) using past IPS data and uprating these components by their related retail price indices. The resulting index is then used to rebase the overseas figures back to 1995 prices. For UK residents abroad, spending is split by country of visit. Consumer price indices for particular countries are used with currency conversion rates to produce an index of price rises. The index is then used to rebase UK residents’ spending to 1995 prices. Additional sources of data The method above explains how the national estimates are produced based on the routes sampled on the IPS. Unfortunately, as the IPS does not cover all passenger routes, additional figures have to be obtained from other sources or estimates and added to the totals derived from the IPS. These additions are: •

UK residents on cruises departing from or arriving at UK shores



Channel Islands expenditure and receipts from tourism, from the Economic Advisor’s office in Jersey



rail fares purchased by overseas visitors to the UK and UK visitors abroad before the start of their visit, and



estimates of travel across the land border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, from the Irish Central Statistical Office. For years before 1999, information was also provided regarding travel on air and sea routes between the UK and the Irish Republic. However, since 1999, the air and sea routes have been covered by the IPS sample

Changes in methodology introduced in 2005 Due to a rapid growth in traffic, in 2005 two new residual airports, Liverpool and Prestwick were introduced into the IPS sample for the first time. The introduction of these two airports has some implications for the results of the IPS. The inclusion of these two ports means that there is more likelihood of picking up contacts that reside in, or have visited areas close to, these airports. The introduction of the new airports caused the IPS research team to review the way that traffic from airports not sampled by the IPS is accounted for in the IPS processing systems. As a result, the systems were modified slightly in order to prevent overestimates or underestimates of traffic occurring at a regional level. The introduction of the new airports and the subsequent changes made to the processing systems causes a discontinuity in the IPS results. Any comparisons of IPS results for 2005 onwards with earlier years (and especially those of a UK regional nature) therefore should be made with care.

Office for National Statistics 134

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

Changes in methodology, 2007 - Imputing expenditure The methods of computing expenditure (imputation) for cases where no expenditure information is given by the contact changed in 2007. The new method takes account of the duration of stay of the contact which had not been the case previously and means there may be a discontinuity in the expenditure series from 2006 to 2007. The new methodology compensates for possible overestimates of spending which may have arisen in the past due to the average daily spending being generally lower on longer trips than on shorter ones. - Imputing fares The costs of a package trip normally include fares to and from the country of visit. For expenditure estimates the fares are deducted from the cost of a package in order to obtain the amount of spending on the visit. The manual method of looking up fares from brochures and from the web was replaced in 2007 by an automated system which uses fares data provided by the respondent. - Coding of UK towns In 2007 a more comprehensive approach to coding UK towns was introduced. Interviewers were provided with a more detailed list of towns and boroughs than in the past, meaning that their recording of responses given by respondents was more accurate. Changes in methodology, 2009 Aberdeen Airport was introduced to the sample, and as a result, the estimated number of visits to cities and regions in Scotland will have been impacted positively. Belfast International Airport was also introduced but visits to cities and regions in Northern Ireland are not reported in the IPS Overseas Travel and Tourism estimates due to inability to record details of visits made by crossing the Irish land border. Prior to 2009, known passenger traffic passing through Belfast was allocated to airports in Great Britain. The allocation of this traffic to interviews conducted in Belfast in 2009 will have had some downward impact on estimates of visits to towns and regions in Great Britain. More broadly, the overall methodology of the IPS was changed in 2009, in terms of both sampling and data processing. Sampling was revised to incorporate an increase in the number of shifts run at many ports outside of Heathrow and a decrease in the number of shifts run at Heathrow. This change was introduced following a Port Survey Review in response to the recommendations put forward by the InterDepartmental Task Force on Migration Statistics. Further, the way that shifts are run was changed via the introduction of a system employing a primary sampling interval for screening migrants and a sub-sample interval for travel and tourism contacts. This approach didn’t affect the profile of travel and tourism contacts but it did require a change in the way the data is processed.

Office for National Statistics 135

Appendix C

Travel Trends 2010

The data processing involves weighting of all records and imputation of records with information missing at certain questions. The basic principles behind the processing were retained in 2009 but improvements were made in some aspects. This resulted in some discontinuity with a downward impact of approx 2 per cent in visits to the UK and 3 per cent in visits overseas and a further value of less than 1 per cent in earnings and expenditure. Details can be viewed at the following location: www.statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_transport/Announcement.pdf Changes in methodology, 2010 There were no changes in data collection methodology in 2010. However, the methodology used to estimate the number of UK residents departing from or arriving at UK ports on cruises was revised. The new methodology utilises new sources of data, including that published by DfT, IRN Research and the European Cruise Council. This represents an improvement in methodology and has the effect of increasing the estimated number of visits to ‘rest of the world’ by UK residents by approximately 175,000 compared with 2009.

Travel Trends 2010

Appendix D – IPS response rates Sample surveys such as the IPS depend on achieving high levels of response from the public. Non-respondents often have different characteristics of travel and expenditure compared with those who do respond and this can lead to biases being introduced into the results. The response rates for the main airports, residual airports, sea routes and the Channel Tunnel are shown in Table D.1 below. A minimum response is one where the contact’s nationality and country of residence were known but where the reason for visit, date the visit began or the country visited were not obtained. The overall response rate in 2010 was 81 per cent of the sample. The overall response rates for sea and tunnel routes remained consistently higher than those at most of the airports.

Appendix F – Information available from the International Passenger Survey Getting further information from the IPS The full IPS database contains over 100 variables and therefore the opportunity exists for more detailed analyses than can be shown here. However, the structure of the IPS database is complex making it rather difficult to analyse. To enable easier examination of the IPS data, a simplified version of the IPS database called Travelpac, comprising 14 of the most widely used variables, is available on the Office for National Statistics website. Data are available for each year from 1994 to 2010. Details of how to access Travelpac are given in Appendix G. Further analyses of IPS data can be commissioned from either of two companies who act as marketing agents for the IPS, or from the ONS. Each is able to undertake the more specific and specialised forms of analysis not covered in this publication and which would not be possible from the Travelpac database. Appendix G gives details of how to contact the marketing agents and ONS. Main analysis variables The full IPS dataset contains over 100 variables. These include variables containing answers to the questions asked in the interview and others that are derived from those answers. Some variables are simply indicators to help identify the quality of data or to show where data have been imputed, and to what degree. The most widely used variables for general analyses are described below. Variable Year1 Quarter1 Month Flow1

Weight1

Nationality Country visited1

Description The year of the interview is recorded as a four-digit number. The four quarters of the calendar year are recorded as a single digit. The month of interview is recorded as two digits from 01–12. Flow describes the direction of travel and the basic residence of traveller. Flow is differentiated further according to whether the contact travelled by a) air, or b) by sea or Channel Tunnel. This gives eight categories of flow, these being: • arrivals by UK residents (air, or sea/tunnel) • departures by UK residents (air, or sea/tunnel) • arrivals by overseas residents (air, or sea/tunnel) • departures by overseas residents (air, or sea/tunnel) The number of trips represented by each contact is given by the weight variable. The total number of trips can therefore be calculated by summing the weights values of the contacts. The nationality of the contact is recorded for all contacts. The main country of visit (or country stayed in the longest) by UK residents is recorded for arrivals and departures.

The country of residence of overseas residents is recorded for both arrivals and departures. The town or area of residence is recorded for UK residents for arrivals and departures. Each year, the state or area within a country is recorded for overseas residents in addition to their country of residence. This detail is limited to four countries each year which are changed annually. In 2010 the countries were Canada, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and Spain. A single main purpose of visit is recorded for all contacts. The length of stay of the visit is recorded in nights. This is only available for overseas residents’ departures and UK residents’ arrivals. The amount of money spent on the trip (excluding fares) is recorded in £ sterling and is available for overseas residents’ departures and UK residents’ arrivals. The UK port is the airport, or the sea/tunnel port or route where the interview was conducted. This is the overseas port to which the contact is travelling directly (or has just travelled directly from). If the person does not change plane during the trip, ‘First port’ is also the final destination (for departures) or the place where the visit started from (for arrivals). If ‘First port’ is a port where the contact changed planes, ‘Second port’ then records the final destination (for departures) or the place where the visit started from (for arrivals). It is otherwise left blank. This is an overseas airport which is either the final destination of the flight being taken (for air departures) or where the flight originated from (for air arrivals). This is not necessarily the same port at which the contact boarded or left the flight. The distance travelled is computed in miles from the geographical locations of the ports recorded. The distances represent the sea level (or ‘great circle’) distances covered. Three distances are calculated: • from the ‘UK port’ to ‘First port’, (for all air contacts) • from ‘First port’ to ‘Second port’ (if a second port is recorded) • from ‘Second port’ to ‘UK port’ (if a second port is recorded) This is the air company or shipping line used on the leg of the journey between the ‘UK port’ and ‘First port’. However, the carrier used between ‘First port’ and ‘Second port’ is not recorded. The type of flight e.g. scheduled or charter (air records only). The single fare in £ sterling is recorded for UK residents’ arrivals only. The type of vehicle taken on board ship or train is recorded. If no vehicle is used or cannot be identified, the contact is recorded as being a foot passenger. This is the number of people travelling in the vehicle recorded above. The age group of the contact is asked and recorded for all contacts. Sex is recorded for all contacts. For overseas residents’ departures only, up to nine towns in which the contact has spent at least one night are recorded.

Travel Trends 2010

The number of nights spent in ‘Towns 1–9’ are recorded. Expenditure while in ‘Towns 1–9’ is not collected but is imputed based on total expenditure, length of stay and area of visit. This identifies whether the contact travelled as part of an inclusive tour package or travelled independently. The money spent on spirits, beer, wine, other alcohol and on tobacco being brought back into the UK by UK residents is recorded.

The above list is not exhaustive and excludes variables based on questions not asked regularly on the IPS. Variables regarding data quality are also not included. 1

Information based on these variables is included in the Travelpac datasets.
