Key Trends in Multi-Stop Tourism: Insight into the key trends in multi-stop tourism, why travelers choose multi-stop trips and what the future holds for the industry
Multi-stop or multi-destination tourism refers to trips in which multiple destinations - either inside the same country or in different countries - are visited as a part of a bigger holiday package. Promoting and selling the idea of multi-stop trips to customers requires the joint effort between either different locations within a single country, or between different countries.
Multi-destination trips have been around for a long time, especially in Europe, where grand tours were common in the 17th and 18th centuries; however, this type of tourism was only available to wealthy people from the European nobility. Europe is also the place where residents have been able to travel using Eurail Passes since 1959, and Interrail Passes since 1972, allowing them to travel via train either regionally and locally.
This type of tourism has further grown in recent years, expanding not just in Europe, but everywhere in the world. This increase is facilitated by a more affordable tourism industry, improved air connectivity, a boom in the number of IT tools offering trip-planning solutions, the large expansion of the shared economy, and the facilitation of visa processes in certain parts of the globe, such as the Schengen area in Europe.
