Utilizing crisis time to get best in future
Many countries count tourism as a key revenue source and — inevitably — tourist visits plummet in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster.
However, a new survey by flights comparison site Skyscanner has revealed that mass media coverage of a negative event may have a positive rebound impact on tourism in the long term.
Over 2500 travelers responded to the survey which found that over a third (36%) of Skyscanner users said that seeing TV and press reports of a country undergoing a natural disaster or other problems raised their interest in the country and would actually make them more likely to travel to there in future.
“In the case of the recent Nepal earthquake, there is a lot of empathy for how the Nepalese have coped and the images of determination and resilience that were broadcast around the world may have led to much admiration, and encouraged tourists to explore the culture of Nepal further in future.”
Several respondents from the survey stated that disasters would not dissuade them from visiting, and would in many cases encourage them to make a trip there:
“The media coverage of the event drew my attention and got me interested in visiting.”
“The bravery and compassion of the people has made me want to go to Nepal.”
