Transport and Tourism provides a much-needed account of the key issues which transport providers, decision makers, managers and tourists face in the use, operation and management of tourist transport. It addresses all the key issues affecting transport and tourism in the new millennium, including:
• Policy changes such as greater privatization, low cost airlines and growth in the Asia-Pacific air market
• The enhanced role of the car
• The effect of crises on travel, safety and security
Transport and Tourism provides a clear understanding of this shared relationship, examining what is meant by a tourist transport system and how the needs of the traveler are incorporated into management systems. The book includes updated case studies such as the Orient Express, coach tourism in National Parks and low cost airlines. It also includes website references which enable students to access key data sources.
