The Long-Haul Travel Barometers provides a forward-looking information about short-term travel trends among potential travellers from Brazil, China, Japan, Russia and the US. The analysis sheds light on travellers’ preferences, motivations and barriers related to travelling to and within Europe.

Full results are available to the members of partner organisations only.
The project is executed with the support of TCI Research.
