Abstract:

Foreign travel during summer time has gotten much attention from tourism scholars in past tourism research. this study, by contrast, scrutinizes the much less studied topic of domestic travel during winter time. In particular, the study addresses how a set of determinants affect norwegians' expenditures on their main domestic winter vacation away from home. two of the main findings are (1) that it is necessary to split total expenditures into subcategories of expenditures to obtain a precise and comprehensive grasp of what causes the variations in expenditure patterns, and (2) that trip-related characteristics in general are much more important determinants of expenditures than sociodemographic variables. Some scholarly and marketing implications are finally discussed.
