currently having a Significant Effect on The Travel and
Tourism Sector
Increase Frequency of Holidays
Over the passage of time it has been seen that there has been an increase in the frequency of
holidays that has helped the travel and tourism sector to flourish at a greater rate. In the current
scenario, it has been found that the travel and tourism sector has helped in bringing economic
stability in different countries along with several other developments such as extended railway
lines, cruise, affordable flight fares, etc. which attracts more tourist to visit different places of
attraction across the globe1. Due to the rise in the frequency of holidays, the number of tour
operators in both national and international scale has raised and the government of different
countries also supports those companies as they are bringing foreign currency, as a result they
can raise the value of their local currency in the international market.

companies to meet their customer need but it has reduced the number of visitors.
