The aim of New Horizons is to provide a global overview of the youth and student travel market, which was estimated to include 284 million international trips in 2016.

  • Who travels, where, why, and how?
  • How are trips planned and booked?
  • How much is spent and on what?

New Horizons is the only recurring global survey of the youth travel market. Since its first iteration in 2002, New Horizons has expanded in both scale and scope, going from 2,300 responses in 2002 to 57,000 in 2017.
