March 2009

Tourism is in essence a personal service and the quality of the tourism experience from the time that the desire to travel is stimulated until the visitor returns home, is highly dependent upon the interaction with the personals in the travel and tourism related sectors. The primary tourism product is an experience rather than a tangible product or service. Tourists travel to a destination to enjoy experiences for which they have preference.


Tourism is not a basic need or commodity and is therefore highly driven by the discretion, tastes and attitudes of the customers. Thus while a range of supportive services like hospitality, travel and entertainment add value to the tourist experience, the major motivations to stimulate travel to an area are the inherent attraction s& activities that it offers to various market segments and its potential to offer unique experience.

Customers care & hospitality are fundamental to the visitors experience is mainly dependent upon the quality for service levels & especially when it comes to the hospitality components such as accommodation, catering & other personal services. The quality, speed and flexibility of services could prove determining factors in the visitor’s choice of a suitable destination & positive experience.


Similarly airlines routings to & from the destination in order to service specific target market segments add value to the overall visitors experience.
