  • Claudia Olimpia Moisa

    (1 Decembrie 1918 University of Alba Iulia)


The tourism market is a market with a specific purpose; young people, as tourists,don’t seek to purchase and consume regular, common and generalized products at the level of theentire population, but seek to find satisfactions induced by the actions within this activity sector. Toensure not only a fair and scientific assessment of the tourism phenomenon, but also the making offair decisions regarding the policies and development prospects of youth travel across Europe andthe globe, this paper presents the characterization of youth travel in terms of its dimensions andstructure of the specific demand. In the second part of the paper, we identified and characterizedthe forms taken by youth travel, determined by the extremely varied motivations of youth. Amongthe best known may be listed the following: educational tourism, volunteer programs, work andtravel programs, cultural exchanges, sports and adventure tourism.
