The many ways tourists can travel both to get destinations and within destinations are systematically reviewed Some of the topics considered include air travel, driving, walking, taking cruises, and using public transport. A central theme of the chapter is that the travel mode can govern and shape the entire experience or be the holiday experience itself.
