The Long-Haul Travel Barometers are a series of infographics that provide forward-looking information about short-term travel trends among potential travellers from Brazil, China, Japan, India, Russia and the US. The infographics shed light on travellers’ preferences, motivations and barriers related to travelling to and within Europe. Results are based on 1,000 interviews conducted in the six markets every four months. The Barometers are part of the joint project “Long-Haul Travel Sentiment Survey & Index” of the European Travel Commission (ETC), the European Tourism Association (ETOA) and Eurail B.V. and TCI Research. Full results are available to the members of partner organisations only.
This project is co-funded by the European Union.
