Spain                 since 1999       Category “Hotels and similar” includes 1 star hotels.

                                Data for arrivals and nights spent in hotels is without
                                "DOM" regions.
                 Until 2004     Data on nights spent in hotels is not comparable with
                                previous years (new survey).

                 Since 2006
Ireland          2000           Data are taken from the demand side survey and not the
                                supply side.
                                Methodology was changed. 2000 data are not
                                comparable with previous years.
Cyprus           2002           Category “Other collective accommodation

                                and similar establishments” instead of in category
                                “Other collective accommodation establishments”, as
                                long as commercial holiday dwellings (more than 9

                 2004           Accommodation establishments (other than hotels,
                                motels, boarding houses) that provided hotel services
                                are included in “Hotels and similar establishments”. For
                                2003 they were included in “Other collective

                                and yearly data for 2008 - 2010.
Finland          1993           Use of bed-places for Tourist campsites includes only
                                bed-places in the cottages, not caravan pitches.
                 2004           Statistical methodology was changed, 2004 data and
                                later are not comparable with previous years.
Sweden           1994-2000      Monthly data exclude tourist campsites

                                exclude Holiday dwellings.
                 Since 2004     Visits and not arrivals of non residents are given.
                                Therefore, the sums of the lower NUTS regions do not
                                agree to the totals for the higher NUTS regions.
                                Data on arrivals and nights spent of residents and non
                               residents include the Channel Islands and the Isle of
                               Man, as well as figures where the precise region is
                               "unspecified". For this reason NUTS I and NUTS II
                               data do not add up to the national total.
                Since          Change in methodology for data on residents.
                April 2005     Comparisons with previous years are not possible.

Iceland         2000-2004      B040: “Other collective accommodation establishments

                               foreigners, total only.

                1995 to 1997   Category “Other collective establishments” excludes
                               nights spent in holiday dwellings.
                2004           The holiday dwellings and the camping sites report their
                               statistics in the form of unit nights. Unit nights are
                               however converted to number of guest nights based on
                               empirical studies, indicating that an average
                               family/travel company sharing a hut consists of three
                               people. From 2004, some larger holiday dwellings with
                               larger huts report number of guest nights instead. These
                               holiday dwellings accommodate families/travel
                               companies of more than three people. This has affected
                               the comparability from 2003 to 2004
Switzerland     since 1995     Other collective accommodation includes only health
                since 2005     EU27 excluding Cyprus and Malta.
