The tourism of younger people is a very promising market. According to the data available by the World Tourism Organization 370 million young people are expected to be traveling around the globe by 2020, while another estimation for tourists between the ages of 18 to 26 states that the value of this market will rise up to 320bn dollars.

Spring is a season that we see an increase in the young tourists’ bookings. It is when the prices are lower something that seems to attract their attention. That applies especially for students.
