These estimates are based on the average energy consumption of each type of facility together with numbers of occupants. Thus, the actual carbon dioxide emissions will vary signiﬁcantly depending ¨ upon how the energy is produced, with Gossling et al.

Estimates of accommodation related energy use are provided by Becken et al. (2001) for New Zealand. Their estimates are given in mega-joules (MJ) per visitor night, but converted using a
