The importance of the mode of transport in self-drive tourism

chapter
posted on 31.10.2018, 00:00 by Dean Carson, Bruce Prideaux
The diversity of self-drive tourism markets is apparent in the different experiences they seek, and the different types of people who undertake those experiences. The first part of this book included a number of dimensions of this - differences based on the country of origin and the sort of trips that the geography, history and culture make possible, and differences based on the destination and the sort of trip that its geography, infrastructure and amenity suggest. This geographic theme is picked up again later in the book (Carson, this volume, Chapter 25). Diversity can also come from the demographic characteristics of travellers, and various chapters discuss diversity as a sub-theme. This second part of the book is most interested in how the type of vehicle makes a difference to the type of self-drive trip.
