From satisfaction with vacation to quality of life enhancement: A test of comprehensive congruity model
MetadataShow full item record
Competition from emerging destinations forces established destinations to differentiate their offer and accommodate growing requests from tourists. Nowadays tourists not only search a destination that provides high quality services at affordable price but they search experiences that will enhance their wellbeing. Destination marketers are faced with a challenge on how to create and promote destination image that would transmit the capacity of the destination to contribute to visitors‘ wellbeing. In the present study we build a structural equation model that helps to relate satisfaction with stay at destination with quality of life enhancement of tourists. We test this model on a sample of visitors to Tasmania to conclude that the present model is a useful practical tool for practitioners willing to understand which aspects of the destination are important for vacationers in order to enhance their wellbeing on vacation.
