DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/x6svz3/the_future_of) has announced the addition of the "The Future of Travel and Tourism in South Africa to 2016" report to their offering.

According to the Travel and Tourism Competitive Index (TTCI) 2011, South Africa was ranked the most popular world heritage natural site, while Cape Town was the top tourist destination in the world according to the Traveler's Choice Destination Awards 2011. South Africa's travel and tourism industry contributed 8.7% to the national GDP in 2011 and represented 4.6% of the country's total employment in the same year. Investment in travel and tourism accounted for 7.2% of the nation's total investments in 2011. Total tourist volume, including domestic and international tourists, fell from 34.9 million in 2010 to 32.5 million in 2011, mainly due to the global financial crisis, which resulted in job losses and reduced levels of consumer confidence. However, tourist volume grew in 2010 due to the country's hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

South Africans mainly book their travel through travel agents or online travel sites. Direct booking channels are becoming more prominent due to efforts by airlines to lower distribution costs. The growing e-commerce sector is making it essential for travel agents and tour operators to adopt self-booking tools to remain competitive. Despite the growth in online travel bookings, senior citizens and those in the lower income groups still continue to purchase trips from traditional channels.
