The World Travel Monitor® is an annual survey monitoring the outbound travel volume and travel behavior in all main markets worldwide, covering more than 90% of the World’s Outbound Travel Demand.
IPK International launched the World Travel Monitor® in 1988 based on the European Travel Monitor® which today forms an essential part of the World Travel Monitor®. Based on surveys representative of the population in more than 60 countries, over 500,000 interviews are conducted every year. Besides holiday trips, business trips as well as other private trips are included in the survey, which is an integral part for covering the total market.
The World Travel Monitor® is a unique tourism database and a basic tool for tourism strategies, marketing plans and masterplans. No other surveys or official statistics offer such comprehensive and directly comparable data on European, American and Asian travel demand and behavior. The questionnaire and the methodology used by the World Travel Monitor® is identical for all surveyed markets and therefore the data is comparable for all monitored countries.
