Since its start in 2002, New Horizons has provided insight to travel agents, suppliers, destination marketers, policymakers, and other stakeholders of the travel and tourism industry.

  • Who travelled where, why, and for how long?
  • How did they plan and book their trips?
  • How much was spent during these trips and on what?

Conducted by WYSE Travel Confederation once every five years, New Horizons is the only recurring global survey of the youth travel market.
