Chinese, Indians Don’t Frequent Foreign Destinations, but Brits, Canadians, Germans Love Outbound Travel

 

rp_OutboundTravelPropensity2008.pngTravel propensity refers to the total number of tourist trips in a specified period, say one year, as a percentage of the total population of the country. Propensity to travel abroad varies from country to country. For instance, in 2008, the Indian outbound travel propensity was just one trip per 100 people while the UK propensity was more than one foreign trip per person (112 trips per 100 people) as against 14 trips per 100 people around the world. The German propensity to travel overseas was 86 trips per 100 people while the Canadian propensity was 82 trips per 100 people. Starkly low propensity, 3 trips per 100 people, was recorded in China. This wide gap between outbound travel propensities unfolds huge business opportunity for international travel and tourism industry. (Data Source:New Zealand(NZ) Tourism)
