Non-Hotel Overnight Stays Continue to Fall with a Decrease of 75% YoY in November

The fall of 75% in November compared to the same month a year earlier resulted in the closure of more of the establishments that had managed to survive the first wave of the Covid crisis.

The statistics regarding non-hotel stays published by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) for the month of November certify that the decline in the tourism sector is continuing. During the penultimate month of the year, non-hotel overnight stays decreased by 75% compared to the same month in 2019. The cumulative annual fall now stands at 58.2%.

This drop in the number of overnight stays led to the closure of more establishments. In October, there were 100,944 left, but by November, that figure had fallen to 85,601. And that is 33.3% below the number registered in November 2019. Of those establishments, tourist apartments have become the most frequented. Despite the fall, they received 113,000 travellers who registered 786,000 overnight stays. The coast around Barcelona was the favourite area for this type of accommodation, with an average occupancy rate of more than 50%, rising to 74% on the weekends.
