New Zealand’s success in attracting international visitors in recent years resulted in significant growth in both the number

of holiday arrivals and stays days

1

. In February 2015 this led to an accommodation occupancy rate of 93.5% in Auckland

and 92% in Queenstown

2

. Effectively, ground capacity reached a point where it was causing demand spill over as visitors

found themselves unable to book tourism related goods and services such as accommodation and rental vehicles due to

availability constraints.

Visitor arrivals to New Zealand numbered 2.86 million in the December 2014 calendar year, the highest ever annual total and 5.1%

higher than December 2013 (International Visitor Arrival, Dec 2014).
