Hostelling International partners with WYSE Travel Confederation

The World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation has announced Hostelling International (HI) as a new partner of its global study of youth and student travel, New Horizons.

“This partnership is one of the ways Hostelling International clearly demonstrates their commitment to understanding the needs and wants of today’s young travellers,” said David Chapman, director general of WYSE Travel Confederation. “WYSE is pleased that Hostelling International will support this very important study.”

Today, HI is one of the world’s largest international membership organisations with more than 3.7 million members.

“We don’t do it for profit, but to offer our guests the chance to experience meaningful interactions with local communities, in ways that enrich young people and encourage mutual understanding. We share our passion for travelling and responsible tourism – meeting new people and learning about ourselves in the process,” said Rebecca O’Connor, head of partnerships for Hostelling International.

New Horizons is the only recurring global survey of the youth travel segment. The aim of the study is to provide a global overview of the youth and student travel market, which WYSE Travel Confederation and UNWTO have estimated to account for more than 280 million international arrivals in 2016.
