In the first half of the current year, Portugal managed to beat all past records for tourist numbers, according to the latest statistics issued by the Portuguese tourist board (Turismo de Portugal).

According to the President of Turismo de Portugal, Luís Araújo, the record is set to maintain for the rest of the year.

In an interview with Jornal Económico, he said that by the end of the first half of 2019 tourism revenues were up 6% like-for-like while the number of tourists had grown 7% on the same period last year.

Araújo said he believed that it was possible to maintain the level of growth until the end of this year while admitting that “we are in a slowdown phase” since it would not be possible to repeat the increase in accumulated revenues of 45% seen in Portugal over the past three years.


The record-breaking tourism boom

Since 2010, when tourism was worth nearly €8Bn, Portugal has enjoyed an unprecedented boom in tourism which stood at over €12Bn in 2016, €15Bn in 2017 and €17Bn in 2018.

According to forecasts from Turismo de Portugal, Portugal should break its record of 24 million tourists by the end of the current year given that in 2018, according to statistics released by the National Statistics Institute, it welcomed a total of 22.8 million tourists, which placed Portugal in 17th position in the ranking of the countries worldwide which received the greatest number of tourists according to the WTO.

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.

O meu consultor, Mathew McGurn, foi realmente excelente! Os seus conhecimentos, profissionalismo e atenção ao detalhe foram muito apreciados. Ele trabalhou duro não apenas para encontrar uma propriedade que atendesse a todos os meus requisitos, mas também negociou com sucesso com os agentes, garantindo que minha oferta conquistasse outros compradores que disputavam a mesma propriedade. Além disso, as suas capacidades de comunicação, tempo de resposta rápido e ajuda geral para a minha instalação em Portugal foram acima e além do normal.
