From World travel and tourism outpaces low-gear global economy:
World travel and tourism have grown faster than the global economy this year with a 4% rise in international trips. Emerging markets such as China and Russia were again the top success stories with high growth rates for outbound travel while Asia and Europe performed well as tourist destinations. The outlook for 2014 is rosy with a 4-5% growth forecast for outbound travel as the world economy gradually improves...
World outbound travel grew solidly this year....Based on the trends of the first eight months the volume of out-bound trips will grow by 4% to 947 million in 2013 and the number of overnight stays will also increase by 4% to just over 7.5 billion nights by the year’s end. This was the first time for several years that the average length of an international trip – just below 8 nights - did not decrease. There was also a slight rise in spending. With average spending of US$ 1,659 per foreign trip, world outbound travel turnover grew by 6% to US$ 1,571 billion.
