Tourism Data

Countries and tourism organizations across the world tend to focus on international tourism, due to the revenue earned through foreign travelers. Governments and municipalities can also use domestic tourism data as a tool to upgrade infrastructure and alleviate pressure from overcrowding. Domestic travel data can also help businesses understand seasonality within regions and build tactics to disperse tourists to less visited areas. Learn more about our Custom Solutions.

Domestic Tourism Patterns

More recently, there has been a lot of interest in understanding the domestic tourism patterns and spends, including:

Travel within a province (i.e. City to Rural).

Travel distance to shopping destinations (example, travel to a restaurant or shopping malls).

Shifts over time in travel to and from municipalities.

Foreign Travel Spend Trends

Marketers look at domestic tourism to provide marketing campaigns to consumers in specific geographical areas. Companies can evaluate opportunities in different locations to understand where to expand their business and attract local residents and other tourists.

In terms of analyzing spend from foreign travel, our data can help illustrate:

  • What foreign travelers spend on when they travel to Canada (e.g., Tourist attractions vs. apparel etc.) based on their country of origin.
  • Which months have a peak in foreign travel for specific regions and which countries are most likely to travel during those times.
  • The difference in foreign spend among different industries across countries.
