Images are said to become even more important. Tourist choice and perception for destination is one of the most needed aspects. Tourist take into account various factors in term formalities, local people, attraction, connectivity, convience and their preferences are some of the factors that generate tourist flow to a particular location. Consumer has different perception and individual needs, which hold different values to destination. In today’s, global technological world there exist various sources of information for selecting a destination.
Destination marketers and managers are constantly being met with the challenge of learning to attract newer tourists and to encourage their revisiting to the destination. The keys to such actions lie in the understanding of tourist behaviours and the antecedents involved in influencing consumer loyalty to destinations. A common assumption made is that an overall satisfied tourist plays a fundamental role in that tourist’s choice to continue returning to a destination and recommend it to others. The purpose of study is to review literature on this idea of “tourist satisfaction” and investigate to what extent it influences destination loyalty amongst tourists. Tourist Satisfaction Defined Tourist satisfaction has become a major area of research over the past three decades (Kozak, 2001).
This is not entirely surprising given that artistic attractions can be seen only at specific times, requires tourists to buy tickets, and is aware of the schedule of the different events and, in many cases, knowledge of required specific language. For all this, the artistic representations are much less accessible to tourists’ attractions asset type. However, an obvious fact is the considerable growth in popularity of festivals and fairs between cultural visitors (Florek, Insch, & Gnoth, 2006). This area also has a heinous product development and has a growing competition between parties and events that sell for cultural tourists. In short, museums and monuments capture most of the market.
One main point of variation is that the tourism sector seems to be characterized by the activities and movement of overnight, same day and leisure day visitors to and/or from unfamiliar or away environments for varying periods of time while hospitality appears to focus on visitor care and satisfaction for the same groups. Tourism, therefore, is tasked with managing the destination details and resources: where the traveller is going, why he/she is going there, how he/she gets to and around the destination and what he/she is going to do there. However, hospitality answers the questions posed by tourism relative to managing the quality of the experience while facilitating the provision of some of the basic human needs of food (drink), shelter and socialization in the visited location. Although there is no explicit mention of the economic impact on/of tourism and hospitality, both definitions allude to derived benefits – non-tangible ones inclusive – in the provision and receipt of goods and/or services which are undoubtedly supported by expenditure on both
However, as action proceeds on the basis of subjective reality therefore, probing destination image is an immensely important exercise. In tourism, marketers are interested in the tourism destination image concept as it plays a significant role in sales of tourist’s services and products and decision making. According of Balmer, whole consumption experience is pervaded by image perspectives. Through imagery, vicarious consumption may take place before purchasing. Imagery than further can lead to increase satisfaction and value addition during the consumption process.
The image of a place is also an important asset (Ryan & Gu, 2008). Ryan and Gu (2008) emphasize that the image itself is the beginning point of tourist’s expectation, which is eventually a determinant of tourist behaviors. In addition, the authors explained that destination image exerts two important roles for both suppliers and tourists. The first role involves informing the supply systems of what to promote, how to promote, who to promote to and, for the actual product that is purchased, how to design that product. The second role involves informing the tourist as to what to purchase, to what extent that purchase is consistent with needs and self-image, and how to behave and consume (p. 399).
This is the cause of segmenting the total market. The benefit of market segmentation is to provide a tourist destination being able to focus on the needs of a particular group and become the best in tending this group. Types of Market Segmentation: Market Segmentation in Tourism can broadly divided into the following types −: · Geographic- This segmentation is done considering some factors such as tourists’ place of origin. This is oldest and simplest basis for market segmentation. · Demographic- This segmentation is done by considering the tourist’s gender, age, marital status, ethnicity, occupation, education level, religion, income and family members.
Tourism can be defined as the activity of traveling to any place for pleasure. The World Tourism Organizations defines tourism as people traveling to and staying in places outside their common environment less than one year either for leisure, business or other purposes. Past researcher defined tourism as short-term movement to places outside their normal residences, the activities undertaken during their stay in those destinations, and the facilities created to satisfy their necessities (Mathieson & Wall, 1982). Tourism is also a study of man away from his usual habitat, of the industry, which responds to his needs, and of the impacts that both he and the industry have on the host’s socio-cultural, economic, and physical environments (Jafari, 1977). Tourism can be either within the country or outside nation.
As the tourism dealer doesn’t have sufficient choices of the tourist places this is due to the reason that most of the tourist destination may be the natural place, historical buildings, attraction, etc. Some of the factors like communication, transport facility, infrastructure, building are very important in development of the tourist focus. The important decision the tourism dealer has to take regarding the distribution is connected to the path of option and path
