Transport and Tourism: Global Perspectives investigates the complex relationship between transport provision and tourism, and adopts a global perspective throughout. Maintaining its 4-part structure, this substantially updated third edition addresses all the key issues and new challenges that transport providers, decision-makers, managers and tourists face in the use, operation and management of tourist transport against the backdrop of rapid technological change in the 21st century.
Topics covered include the ongoing financial crisis in the US airline industry, challenges posed by low-cost airlines and other innovative forms of transport provision, the climate change and sustainability debate, problems of managing car-based tourism, crime, safety, and security, and the e-travel revolution. A completely revised ‘future prospects’ chapter emphasises good practice examples and innovative schemes for tourist transport provision
Transport and Tourism is an essential text for students on travel and tourism degrees and will be of key interest to students and practitioners in related fields also including strategic management and geography.
