    • Seek out unspoiled destinations and explore without using tourist services

  • Dependables

    • Prefer creature comforts and seldom try anything new or foreign

When asked by a team of Plog researchers why they traveled, most Americans gave the following answers:

  • To get rid of stress

  • To enrich perspective on life

  • To bring family closer together

  • To do what they wanted, when they wanted

  • To feel alive and energetic

The Internet has changed the way people fly, rent, make reservations, and relax.

Operating an e-tail business on an electronic channel—the Web—can be costly, due to design, delivery, returns, and operating expenses.

Though Many larger dot-com companies crashed in the 1990’s, small stores like Harris Cyclery of West Newton, Massachusetts, actually increase sales using a basic Web site. Today, a third of Harris’s bicycle business rides in on the Web to get hard-to-find parts and personal service.

Checking concepts l.jpg





The economic multiplier is the process by which tourist money filters through a local economy and is spent and re-spent, creating income for other businesses.

Globalization is the increasing integration of the world economy.

Sustainable tourism is tourism that allows a destination to support both local residents and tourists without compromising future generations. It is important because it protects the future of the industry in that area.

Tourism impacts many aspects of a destination, including economic, social and cultural, and environmental conditions.

Checking Concepts

  • Explain two factors that determine the amount of the economic multiplier.

  • Define globalization.

  • Explain the importance of sustainable tourism.

  • Identify aspects impacted by tourism.


Checking concepts36 l.jpg




The first two phases of a tourist destination’s life cycle are (1) introduction, during which tourists begin to discover the location, and (2) growth, during which development, such as the building of new facilities, occurs to attract more tourists.

Business travel is done for the sole purpose of conducting a person’s or company’s business. Travel for pleasure is done to visit friends and relatives or for enjoyment.

Plog’s psychographic analysis helps to determine people’s travel preferences. It places individuals on a continuum ranging from venturer to dependable, based on their answers to a series of questions about values, beliefs, and lifestyles.

Checking Concepts

  • Describe the first two phases of a destination’s life cycle.

  • Explain the difference between travel for business and for pleasure.

  • Define Plog’s psychographic analysis.
