Tourism Geography Exam 1: Study Guide Concepts and Definitions: Tourist Demand- Total number of persons who travel that will use tourist facilities and services at places away from their places of work and residence. Effective Demand- Actual numbers of (traveling) tourists. Suppressed Demand- Population who do not travel. Potential Demand- Those who “may” travel sometime in the future. Deferred Demand- Those who “cannot” travel due to problem with supply. No Demand- Population who do want to travel. Travel Propensity- Measure of effective demand. Net Travel Propensity- Percent of population who take at least one trip in given period of time. Gross Travel Propensity- Total number of trips taken as a percent of the Population. Determinants of Travel Propensity- Two broad groups - National level of generalization - Personal point of view As a society evolves, important processes occur: - Employment changes - An affluent society emerges - Discretionary incomes increase creating demand for goods and leisure pursuits Tourism demand is greatly effective because: - Populations are aging - Aging populations have high discretionary income - “Baby-boomer” generations are exercising spending power with influencing demand. - Single and childless households are increasing thus changing traditional customer base Two sets of personal factors influence travel propensity: - Lifestyle - Life Cycle Paid Vacation Entitlement: - Fewer vacation days to constrain ability to travel - More vacation days encourage travel - As levels increase, cost may dictate leisure time spent at home - Patterns are changing Tourism is still unobtainable by many due to: - Expense of travel - Lack of time - Physical limitations - Family circumstances - Lack of interest Barriers based upon problems with the supply environment include: - Post 9/11 - Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - Icelandic ash cloud in 2010 Objectives:  Explain tourist demand – distinguish between effective and suppressed demand  Understand concepts of travel propensity and frequency  Identify motivations an determinants of tourist demand  Understand influences of personal variables on demand  Appreciate primary barriers to travel leading to suppressed demand  Know the difference between recreation and leisure
