Young and student travellers aged between 15 – 29 account for 23 percent of all international

arrivals worldwide according to estimates by the World Youth, Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

As Taleb Rifai, secretary general, UNWTO, pinpointed, over time, the proportion of youth travellers has not only increased, but also diversified due to the growing volumes from emerging economies.

“This is very good news as young travellers tend to look for lesser known destinations and be more resilient in moments of crises,” highlighted Rifai.

According to David Chapman, director general, WYSE Travel Confederation, these globetrotters are pursuing knowledge and skill-building activities through travel.
