The future growth of tourism will depend to some extent on how well the tourism industry understands the social and demographic trends influencing traveller behaviour. Age has long been recognised as a major demographic variable, but some authors have argued that it is important to consider not only chronological age, but also life cycles and generational cohorts (Stevens et al., 2005). The notion of generational cohorts provides a major research paradigm for considering the implications of social and demographic change for tourism.
