Perceived Risks and Chaordic Tourism Decision-making during Recession

Pappas, Nikolaos (2019) Perceived Risks and Chaordic Tourism Decision-making during Recession. In: ICHRIE, 24-26 July, New Orleans, USA.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The study examines the behavioural complexity formulated by tourism related risk effects during recession. Based on chaos and complexity theories it evaluates the tourism chaordic system. Using a sample of 507 Athenian holidaymakers the research employs fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis, and evaluates the social, destination, price, and quality risks’ effects upon purchasing intentions. The analysis also includes the socio-demographics of age and monthly income. The results reveal three sufficient configurations (price-quality nexus; tourism experience; destination image) able to influence tourism purchasing decisions. The study also suggests several managerial implications concerning complexity aspects of purchasing tourism behaviour during periods of turmoil.
