Global City & International State Travel

Detailed inbound and outbound travel data for 350 cities and states around the world

Global City Travel (GCT) and International State Travel (IST) provide detailed international travel intelligence for 300 cities around the world and 50 states in the USA. These proprietary databases have been developed using a combination of aviation, immigration, financial transaction, online search, and survey inputs to provide the most accurate view of historical and forecast local-level travel ever produced. The databases allow clients to quickly benchmark competitive destinations and track market performance over time to inform global market strategies.

What the Services Include: 

Extensive data-bank. Comparable analysis includes market detail for departures, arrivals, and traveler spending along with headline economic indicators. Origin market traveler flows for visits and nights are included for each destination with respect to 49 countries and 10 world regions. 

In-depth historical data, forecasts and regular updates. Data starts in 2000 and is forecast ten years into the future based on the Oxford Economics economic outlook—the most widely used global economic model in the world. The database is updated every six months.

Robust methodology. The data-bank is based on vast, complementary data sets including official statistics, survey data, financial transactions, online search, air passenger flows, hotel room demand, economic, and demographic data by destination and origin market.

Advanced analytical functions. Our web-based data-bank allows users to quickly build custom queries with complete flexibility and visualize the data in tables, charts, and maps. Searches can be saved for future reference and downloaded quickly to Excel and Adobe formats, and even shown on a heat map.
