Abstract

This study investigates the determinants of long-haul tourists’ daily expenditure and length of stay. Relative price competitiveness, travel party size, activity engagement in entertainment, and trip organization method affect both daily spending and length of stay. Income and engagement in outdoor activities further contribute to predict daily expenditure, whereas activity engagement in nature and culture activities significantly affects the length of stay. The study presents helpful information to stakeholders responsible for outbound long-haul tourist destination policy and planning in mature and emerging destinations.
