Travel to Europe is increasing steadily at around 30%.
This is a good sign and we hope it will continue to rise.
Britain is in a sort of turmoil with Brexit and the election of Boris Johnson to the realm, But tourism is still trending and that is an encouraging sign that all is not doom and gloom.
From a demographic view among travellers Gen Z tops the list with an increase of 55 % in Spain, followed by the Netherlands with a whopping 95% increase by millennials.
Gen X travellers loved Switzerland and Germany while Greece showed a 40% increase by baby boomers.
Overall spending has decreased due to the rising costs in Europe although Greece has seen a 50% increase in spending by baby boomers.
Hurray! the government of Sri Lanka has decided to issue free visas for travellers, starting from August 2019 - January 2020. This is a very encouraging step and one set in the right direction. Ever since the suicide bombings in April this year, revenue from tourism dropped to zilch.
The recent bombings has had a very serious toll on tourism in Sri Lanka. Many workers in the hospitality industry lost their jobs as a result of the bombings.
We encourage travellers to return to Sri Lanka and support the industry.
Leisure World Tours has this all inclusive 12 day Sri Lanka holiday for you or email firstname.lastname@example.org
