Abstract: Few studies have attempted to identify predictors for the spending behavior on same- day visits. A good understanding of these could however serve as a guide for the planning of marketing campaigns, help in increasing the economic benefits of day trips and can be of interest from a policy perspective. Thus, the main objective of this study is to investigate the effects of a wide range of socio demographic and same- day visits related variables on the volumes and probabilities of same-day visit expenditures. Using a unique dataset on same-day visits in Belgium, the empirical results highlight that duration of a same- day visit, age, information, education and motivation are important determinants of same- day visit expenditures.
