Built on a solid foundation

Tourism Economics brings together economic, psychographic, financial, and external factors into our robust modelling process.

Economic fundamentals

Household income, consumer sentiment, corporate profits, savings rates, and other drivers of the travel outlook are drawn from the latest Oxford Economics macroeconomic outlook.

Traveller sentiment

Survey data on traveller intentions and attitudes, combined with historic travel patterns, provide a benchmark for the near-term outlook.

Prices and exchange rates

The cost of travel, including energy, food, hotel rates, airfares, and exchange rates inform revenue forecasts

External event factors

Upside examples: new attractions, policies, investments.
Downside examples: geopolitical tensions, health crises, natural disasters.

Tailored to your needs

You define the traveller segments, markets, and scenarios


Identify the focus of the analysis: visitor purpose, day/overnight trips, type of accommodation, spending by category, hotel performance, fiscal and other economic impacts.


Select any number of destinations for competitive analysis and origins for market opportunity analysis. Based on our global travel datasets covering 185 countries and 300 cities.


Collaborate with our team to define the scenarios that represent relevant potential outcomes in relation to external events, the economy, or policy options.
