Youth tourism: an expanding world market

Espaces Paris ( 117): 19-36

Youth tourism: an expanding world market

With an almost 20% share of the world tourism market (compared to 14% 10 years ago), tourism among people in the 15-25 year age group is a significant and expanding activity. This exceptional growth area can be explained by greater targetting of this market segment by tour operators and increasing standards of living and levels of education worldwide. Young tourists no longer fit the traditional image of groups of friends who go hitch-hiking.
