A definition of tourism

Having studied, work in and taught tourism management for many years (see-about Hayley Stainton), I can tell you that there is no straight-cut answer to this question!

You see, the tourism industry is somewhat grey in nature. Elements that some may consider ‘tourism’, others may not. Some people believe they are ‘tourists’, when others do not. Some things are black and

Stimulus package could have tax incentive for tourism in US

A proposal to boost tourism by providing tax breaks for Americans who travel inside the United States is being “actively” considered by the White House for inclusion in the next coronavirus stimulus package.

Three White House officials told McClatchy the tax credit for travel, which has been sharply curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic, is among the economic recovery proposals under discussion. They plan to make a formal recommendation to Congress next month.

“One of the things that is very much on the table is a tax deduction for Americans to do tourism activities,” one senior White House official said.

The U.S. Travel Association has proposed a tax incentive for travel of up to $4,000 per household to help restart domestic business and leisure travel.

The association’s proposed tax credit would allow for a refund of 50 percent of qualified travel expenses through the end of 2021, with qualified expenses

Tourism numbers declined as a result of a strong economic slowdown (the late-2000s recession) between the second half of 2008 and the end of 2009, and in consequence of the outbreak of
