Abstract

The classification and analysis of tourists continues to be an important research theme. Existing typologies are typically based on cross-sectional information of tourists' choice behaviour. Consequently, the sequential data embedded in holiday histories is not explicitly considered when developing ...

Abstract

This article proposes and tests a rule-based approach to modelling tourist choice behaviour, as an alternative to the more traditional utility-based models. Data of the vacation profiles of 3562 respondents from the Continuous Vacation Research-survey of 1998 in Netherlands are used. The...
