In addition to the monthly Statistical Bulletins, ONS publishes both quarterly and annual Overseas Travel and Tourism estimates.


  • provisional estimates for Quarter 4 are published in April each year,

  • and these provisional estimates are subsequently revised to produce final full-year estimates, in July (via the publication Travel Trends)

ONS has taken steps to be able to produce end of year estimates in April. As a result in 2013, ONS will:

  • Publish Travel Trends 2012, containing final 2012 estimates on 19 April rather than in July.

  • Not publish the provisional Quarter 4 estimates, originally planned for publication on 11 April.
