In Britain holiday taking was no longer an elite practice but a national habit. By How tourism developed – the history the late 1930s some 15 million people took an annual holiday and the trend was similar in other countries. Mass travel The fourth stage in modern tourism, the postwar years from 1945 until the present time, has been a period of technological revolution; in fact, a second industrial revolution. This resulted in a massive increase in wealth and disposable income, together with equally far-reaching changes in lifestyles and behaviour.

Germany and Italy, suffering major economic difficulty, offered remarkably low prices. In spite of such attractions the 1930s recession had a major effect in limiting the development of travel movements. For many of the traffic flows, across the Atlantic for example, a rapid rise to a peak in 1930–31 was followed by recession. Recovery was beginning when the Second World War started. British visits to Europe were only 7 per cent higher in 1924 than in 1913, but increased to a level 47 per cent higher by 1930.

It is estimated that over 50 per cent of first-class city centre hotel trade comes from this market segment, and the percentage is even higher for some services such as car rental. In the UK, over 25 per cent of total foreign currency earnings from visitors comes from the business traveller. Both access to capital and the technology for massive new developments guaranteed the rapid expansion of infrastructure. In the UK, for example, total national stock of international class accommodation (rooms with bath) doubled in little more than three years between 1970 and 1974, with the help of an open-ended subsidy from the government paid for each new hotel bedroom built.
