ETC – Long Haul Travel Barometer no. 6/2016
ETC has published the sixth edition of “Long-Haul Travel Barometer” for Europe. The report is based on infographics that mainly focus on the older (Baby Boomer) generation of travellers, being a highly valuable group.

There is an emerging trend as this group increasingly seeks to visit less known tourist sights and attractions.
