Revisiting Tourist Behavior Models in Destination Choice.

In the tourist behavior literature, Plog´s psychographic model and Butler´s tourism area life cycle (TALC) are assumed to be theoretically related. In order to better understand tourists’ destination choice, this research intends to revisit the two models, proposing that consumption needs might enhance the predictive power of Plog´s psychographics.
