New Zealanders who are satisfied with their previous hotel or resort stay are significantly more likely to be planning a trip in the near future compared with the New Zealand population (14+). Throughout 2011, when asked the date of their next planned trip, 87% of satisfied guests planned to take a trip in the next twelve months, compared with 73% of the population.
 
Roy Morgan Research Tourism data shows that satisfied guests are also more likely to be planning a trip in the short term, with 40% planning a trip in less than two months, compared with 30% of the population.

Satisfied Hotel Guests are also more likely to notice travel related advertising and media than the general New Zealand population. The chart below shows how satisfied hotel guests compare with New Zealanders on travel and tourism content for a number of locations.

The Roy Morgan Satisfied Hotel Customer Profiles show how satisfied customers compare to the New Zealand population across many different attitudes, activities, demographics and media usage. The data comes from Roy Morgan’s Single Source consumer survey, which includes information based on over 12,000 New Zealanders annually.


Pip Elliott, Client Services Director, Roy Morgan Research, says:
 
“Building brand loyalty in today’s struggling tourism and travel market is a necessary strategy for success, and reaching previous satisfied guests can play a large role in this. Satisfied guests are more travel savvy than the general population, consuming and noticing more travel related material, and also more likely to be considering a trip away in the near future.”
