  • Visiting friends and family
  • Trade
  • Commuting–going to various routine activities, such as work or meetings.
  • Migration—travel to began life somewhere else; nomadic people do this
  • Pilgrimages—travel for religious reasons

Mass travel could only develop with two crucial features:1. improvements in technology allowed the transport of large numbers of people in a short space of time to places of leisure interest, and 2. greater numbers of people began to enjoy the benefits of leisure time. The real age of international mass travel began with the growth of air travel after World War Two. In the immediate post-war period, there was a surplus of transport aircraft, such as the popular and reliable Douglas DakotaFeature Articles, and a number of ex military pilots ready to fly them.
