Por ello, la motivación de viaje de los senior se configura como una de las variables comportamentales de mayor relevancia de cara a un conocimiento en profundidad de este colectivo. Así, en esta investigación se evalúa la relación entre dos componentes de la motivación, los factores push y pull a través de diversos análisis estadísticos se determina la relación entre el propósito principal del viaje y los atributos del destino para este colectivo. Finalmente, se proponen estrategias específicas para ofertar productos acordes a la motivación del viaje.
