Unlocking the Value of Youth Student & Educational Travel

Published in June 2017. This publication provides a comprehensive analysis of the UK as a travel, education, and work experience destination for young people.

An extensive literature review took place, followed by worldwide research on both inbound UK providers and organisations internationally that regularly send youth travellers to the UK.  

The results draw conclusions from 336 businesses, which cumulatively represent more than 1.5 million youth travellers from 60 countries and shows that youth travellers to the UK represented 38% of all international arrivals in 2016 and that the market to date is worth £22.3 billion per annum to the UK economy.
