Senior Tourism

senior1Senior citizens and pensioners compose a very promising travel market as they are said to have a stable and high income and plenty of free time for leisure and activities.

According to HUI Research, age groups over 55 years are often neglected as potential consumers although they have the highest purchasing power.

The Greek Tourism Ministry recently expressed an interest in attracting more senior tourists to the country. In April, Greek Tourism Minister Olga Kefalogianni had announced that the ministry was planning to launch a strategy to target this travel group.

A study conducted by the Research Institute for Tourism (ITEP), had said that senior tourism could develop into an essential factor for the lengthening of the tourism season in Greece. ITEP said that by 2030, senior tourists will constitute 24 percent of the international tourism market.
