Achieving Wellness through Tourism: Comparing International and U.S. Travelers

Abstract
Health and wellness tourism has become an increasingly popular trend in recent years as many resorts and destinations now offer wellness activities and amenities. This study sought to investigate what might be significant predictors of achieving a high perceived wellness as a result of travel. The results revealed that for international travelers internal motivations of action related activities, the need to be with others, the size of their travel party and education were significant predictors. For domestic travelers, only their perceived physical wellness was a predictor or their overall wellness state. Future research could explore relationships between the domestic and international traveler.
