Malta welcomed 1.295 million tourists between January and June, up 6% on the same period in 2019

In terms of spending, we see that tourists spent €112.25 per night per night between January and June 2019. And this year, tourists already paid 127.28 euros per night, but this figure does not take into account inflation. Adjusted for inflation, overnight spending from January to June was €112.12, very similar to pre-pandemic 2019.

It is very difficult to determine the exact cost of tourism and, therefore, the marginal cost of one additional tourist. There are many such costs, both direct and indirect, including infrastructure costs, congestion costs, and environmental costs, to name a few. Therefore, anyone who heads the tourism industry in Malta must look at the average expenditure per tourist, and at the number of arriving tourists, and at a set of other indicators.
