Hotel overnight stays down by 35% year-on-year in October
Faroese hotels continue to suffer as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, with about 4,800 fewer overnight stays in October 2020 compared to October 2019.
While the number of overnight stays by Danish residents has gone down by 10%, and by a full 74% for residents from the rest of the world, Faroese residents represent an increase of 26% in these statistics.
The table below shows the number of hotel check-ins, i.e. the number of hotel visitors, regardless of the length of their stays.
Overnight stay: in this context, an overnight stay is defined as a single night spent in a hotel which registers and passes this information on to Statistics Faroe Islands. For example, if ten people spend three nights at a hotel, this counts as 30 overnight stays.
Check-in: the number of individuals who check in at a hotel.
Room nights: the number of rooms occupied over a certain period. For example, if ten people spend three nights in five rooms, this counts as 15 room nights.
