Self-catering is an important component of the tourism industry in Wales. In order to fully understand its contribution, the Association of Scotland's Self-Caterers (ASSC) and the Professional Association of Self-Caterers UK (PASC UK) commissioned Frontline Consultants (Frontline) to carry out an independent Economic Impact Assessment of the self-catering industry in the UK. They also very kindly disaggregated the figures for Wales and have produced a separate report which very usefully illustrates the importance of Self Catering to the industry in Wales. The sector is worth over £173.1mn in total visitor spend and accounts for 0.7mn visitor nights.
