''Strategic Choice in Tourism with Differentiated Crowding Types''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.2 )
We introduce a model of tourism choice where we consider that the choice of a tourism resort by a tourist, depends not only on the characteristics of the product offered by the resort but depends also on certain characteristics -crowding types- of the other tourists that have chosen the same resort. To get insights about the effect of crowding types in the allocation of tourists across resorts we exploit a club formation approach and model the framework by means of a Nash game. We establish existence of strategic equilibrium and characterize relevant equilibria.
Keywords: Crowding types, Nash equilibrium, strategic choice of tourism resort
