WYSE Travel Confederation launches fifth New Horizons study on global youth and student travel
The World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation has launched the fifth edition of its global study on youth and student travel, New Horizons.
New Horizons is the only recurring global survey of the youth travel segment. The aim of the New Horizons study is to provide a global overview of the youth and student travel market, which was estimated to include more than 330 million international trips in 2019.
The New Horizons survey combines information on the social and cultural aspects of young travellers (backgrounds, motivations, and experiences) with data on travel behaviours (purchasing, booking, product search and destinations visited). New Horizons looks at:
- Who travels, where, why, and how
- How trips are planned and booked
- How much is spent and on what
Since its first edition in 2002, New Horizons has expanded in both scale and scope, going from 2,300 responses in 2002 to 57,000 in the 2017 edition, New Horizons IV.
WYSE Travel Confederation, a global membership association for the youth travel trade, is known for its global travel trade events and research specifically on the youth and student travel market.
“If your business is focussed on educational travel or youth-orientated tourism experiences, New Horizons is an essential tool,” said David Chapman, Director General of WYSE Travel Confederation. “The fifth edition of the study will be especially important for businesses looking to navigate their way through the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Suppliers of travel products tailored to the youth and student traveller are invited to participate in the fifth New Horizons study.
