Abstract

The development of transport infrastructure is a prerequisite and a fundamental factor in tourism sector growth, as without the variety of transport means (i.e. tourist transport by air, by water, on land) and modes (i.e. mass transportation, independent means of travel) tourism industry would not be able to exist. In this context, tourism embraces all the transport systems, from local transit systems to global air connection among destinations. This paper discusses transport for tourism issues with emphasis on practices observed in the rail, yacht and cruising sectors. Policy implications are then thoroughly discussed to suggest a roadmap for those working in the area.
