NZ Backpacker Segment

​The backpacker segment, represents approximately 11% of NZ’s holiday arrivals and visitor spend – making it a valuable visitor segment for New Zealand.

The value of the backpacker goes far beyond arrivals and expenditure. The backpacker traveller travels widely amongst different regions and gets involved in a range of activities, meaning they are likely to spend more while they are here. The backpacker segment also travels throughout the year and presents a strong opportunity to grow shoulder season arrivals.

In recognition of how influential this market is, Tourism New Zealand has a specialist team that leads investment in backpacker-specific marketing communications, PR activity and partnerships alongside Tourism New Zealand’s off-shore teams as well as the backpacker focused travel industry.
