Travel industry. Assignment 2 Kayleigh Moore 1. The public sector in travel and Tourism is non-commercial and is there to provide a service or educate its visitors, not to make a profit. For example: Chapelfield gardens are an open park for everybody to enjoy and pass through at any time with no fees. Also the Norwich information centre, which is located in the assembly house, is there to provide help and information for the public without charging for their services. The Private sector is there specifically to make a profit. Travel agencies such as Thomas Cook are a big part of the private sector as their aim is to sell holidays, flights and accommodation to make a profit. The voluntary sector is a non-commercial sector that doesn't aim to make a profit. It relies on the admission fees, sponsorship charges and donations to keep the organisation open and running. Norwich castle is in the voluntary sector; fees and donations go towards keeping the castle open and extending the castle's exhibits. 2.

There have also been issues including natural and physical disasters that have majorly affected the travel industry. For example the horrific events of 911, the majority of people feared of travelling to America in particular but there were also a percentage of people who were scared to travel by plane in fear of another terrorist attack. This affected America's tourist industry for a short period of time but they quickly recovered after people became less feared of travelling to America for holidays. Natural disasters have also affected the travel industry, for example the tsunami that covered parts of Asia. People feared visiting places around there in case of another natural disaster. People then became aware that natural disasters could happen anywhere at anytime, so then tourism then started to pick up again as people were then booking various holidays throughout the world and back to places around Asia. One of the most recent issues that have affected the tourism industry is the credit crunch. The tourism industries were suffering as people weren't having enough disposable income due to job loses and pay cuts. Therefore people weren't booking holidays and different destinations around the world that reply on tourists were starting to suffer. Travel agents started to offer cheaper package holidays, last minuet deals and credit crunch prices. More people have started to book holidays since various deals have arisen. ...read more.
