Higher accommodation prices contribute to inflation – Media release

22 January 2021

On a quarterly basis, domestic accommodation services were the top contributor to the CPI increase, up 20 percent in the December 2020 quarter, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on international tourism.
