With youth travellers having been identified as one of the fastest growing segments within the international travel market, developing experiences and opportunities to attract the rising number of young travellers visiting the wider Loch Lomond destination is an important factor in business growth.

So much so that a tailored Youth Travel Toolkit has been created to enable tourism businesses to quickly and easily understand this audience, what they expect from their travel experiences and ultimately how businesses can enhance their services or products to effectively reach the rapidly growing youth travel market.
