Regional Tourism Indicators (RTIs)
The Regional Tourism Indicators (RTIs) measure the change in level of expenditure of both international and domestic travellers in New Zealand by region.
The data is based on electronic card transactions.
The RTIs were superseded by the Monthly Regional Tourism Estimates (MRTEs) in 2016.
In this section
The Regional Tourism Indicators (RTIs) were designed to provide data on tourism spending in the various regions of New Zealand, using electronic card transaction data as the source.
This page has graphs and tables that show changes in international expenditure based on data from April 2016.
This page has graphs and tables that show changes in domestic expenditure, using April 2016 data.
From this page you can access tables that show a breakdown of international and domestic spending by regional tourism organisations.
This page explores electronic card spending patterns for the China market, and provides insights into the types of analysis the Regional Tourism Indicators can produce.

We conducted a review of the Regional Tourism Indicators from March to September 2015.
