TV series showcases NZ holiday park fun

May 20, 2014 Association No Comments Email Email

An international audience is set to discover the fun that holidaymakers can have staying at New Zealand holiday parks.

RV Rampage contestants in WANAKAHoliday parks throughout the country feature in a new Travel Channel show, RV Rampage, which makes its debut on New Zealand TV on Thursday 22 May. Travel Channel broadcasts to over 130 countries around the world, meaning the 10-part series will reach an international audience of millions.

It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase New Zealand’s holiday parks and the range of great experiences they offer, Holiday Parks Association New Zealand (HAPNZ) Chief Executive Fergus Brown says.

“This sort of international publicity is priceless. We were able to feature 10 different parks in a wide range of settings and offering a diverse variety of experiences,” Mr Brown says.

“It all adds up to giving people a real idea of what to expect from a campervan holiday in New Zealand.”

The show will reach many of the holiday park sector’s high value international markets, such as the UK and Germany, and encourage potential visitors to consider spending more time in New Zealand, he says.

“These travellers provide significant economic benefit to the regions of New Zealand. They stay longer than the average visitor to New Zealand and they spend money in local shops, restaurants and supermarkets.”

HAPNZ research shows that holiday parks guests contribute $733 million in direct expenditure to the local communities each year.

Key facts:

  • The holiday park sector provides 38% of New Zealand’s commercial accommodation capacity and 20% of actual guest nights
  • In the past year holiday parks provided 6,325,431 guest nights
  • Guest nights to holiday parks are made up of approximately 32% international visitors and 68% domestic visitors
  • While staying at holiday parks guests contribute $733 million in direct expenditure to the local communities
  • Approximately $372 million (51%) of the expenditure is contributed by domestic travellers, with the balance of $362 million (49%) by international travellers
