Abstract
Distance travelled is a recurrent determinant of expenditures during same-day visits and destination choice. Identifying the factors determining distance travelled will thus lead to a better understanding of expenditures and location choice, which is of interest from a policy and economic perspective. By applying a specific analytical framework which explicitly considers the different workings of socio-demographic factors on the decision to go on a same-day visit as well as the distance related effects of a same-day visit, we are able to investigate the effects of both socio demographic and same-day visit related variables on distance travelled. The empirical results highlight that gender, time spent, age, education and information source are important determinants of travel distance during same-day visits.
