Travel industry might face severe challenges in the future due to the increase in tourism as holidays are not a luxury anymore as seen before.
What Is It?
Due to increase in the number of holiday packages and cheap flights, holidays are not a luxury anymore and are affordable for travellers across the globe. Although, according to Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), the average number of holidays taken by British holidaymakers grew to 3.8 per person in 2017. Out of this, holidays taken abroad are 1.7, an increase from 2016 which was just 1.4 per person.
What’s In It?
The influx of tourists seen from the UK who make trips to regions of hotter climates has seen a threat to the industry according to travel experts.
This has further caused various popular tourist destinations around the world to put down certain rules to prevent overcrowding situations and management. To limit the number of people to visit a monument, Italy and Spain are proposing limited visitors to the main city and adding metal barriers for tourists to prevent overcrowding.
Beaches in Thailand are been forced to shut to avoid wastage on beaches and threat to marine ecosystems that come with the influx of tourists.
