Domestic tourism marginally declined in 2013 as the number of trips dropped by 1% to 131 million, while expenditure grew by 3% to GBP24 billion. Overall, the total number of domestic trips taken by UK residents has declined by around 25% since the peak of 174 million trips registered in 2000. Number of domestic trips by UK residents declined over the 2000-04 period, recovered to some extent in 2005, then declined further following the global economic decline, with the uncertain economic outlook impacting consumers' decision regarding taking a holiday. Consumers saw a reduction in their purchasing power, largely due to stagnant salaries, rising inflation and little appetite for taking on further debts. Over this period as a whole, domestic tourism saw a stronger performance than outbound tourism.
