Monthly visits abroad by UK residents 2017-2018

Number of monthly visits abroad by residents of the United Kingdom (UK) from April 2017 to December 2018 (in millions)

Monthly visits abroad by UK residents 2017-2018 This statistic shows the number of monthly visits abroad by residents of the United Kingdom (UK) between April 2017 and December 2018. An estimated 5.87 million visits were made overseas from the UK in December. This presented a net decrease compared to the same month a year earlier. Outbound tourism from the UK generally decreased in 2018, with around six million visits taken per month. August was the most popular month for overseas travel that year. Since 2011, annual visits abroad steadily increased up until now.

The data is taken from the International Passenger Survey (IPS), a continuous survey collecting data about passengers entering and leaving the UK. Up to 800,000 interviews are conducted each year to measure inbound and outbound tourism and the study is used by various UK government departments.

Monthly visits abroad include travel for all purposes: holiday travel, business travel, study visits, visiting friends or relatives and other miscellaneous forms of travel. Most UK tourists travel abroad for vacations, which may contribute to the rise in visits overseas in the summer months. Compared with the number of outbound holiday visits, overall departures are more evenly spread throughout the year.
