“SAVE travel is a substantial travel niche comprised of the four market profiles of scientific, academic, volunteer and educational tourism, practised by a broad range of tourists who travel for different reasons, predominantly leisure and education but also business, taking part in a multitude of activities. As the desire for ‘meaningful experiences’ while travelling continues to gather pace, it is clear that SAVE tourism is becoming increasingly mainstream in a competitive marketplace.”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst

  • How does SAVE tourism fit within the global tourism industry?
