Providenciales, TCI July 18, 2017 — A recent visitor survey conducted by the Tourist Board and the TCIG Department of Statistics found that beautiful beaches and ease of travel access accounted for more than 90 per cent of deciding factors for tourists when visiting TCI.
Many tourists expressed dissatisfaction with souvenir shopping, taxi and rental car services and the lack of nightlife, however. The survey also found that 33 percent of tourists use recommendations from family and friends as their main source for information on the TCI. The percentage of tourists who relied solely on the Internet for travel info was 27.6 per cent. The survey was conducted in March and another survey is scheduled for August.
A Government press office release said the data serves as a resource for key players in the tourism industry to develop marketing strategies, revise services and remain competitive.
