Tourist behavior in a cross-border area: the case of Nicosia, Cyprus

Díaz Sauceda, Judit
Text Complet
Tourists are crossing borders naturally when consuming an area. Therefore, cross-border tourism studies are gaining relevance. A qualitative analysis showed the lack of research on cross-border tourism from the demand side. A quantitative analysis (n=1401) at the cross-border area of Nicosia, Cyprus is proposed to analyze the drivers that lead to behavioral intentions of those international tourists visiting the cross-border area. The model tests the simultaneous relationships between sensation-seeking, perceived crowding, value, satisfaction and behavioral intentions; and it is as well tested with the moderating effect of expectations. This effect has not been included before when studying cross-border areas. Results corroborated the model and the derived implications have been confirmed too. ​
