Hi, I’m studying tourism management at Business College of Athens, London Metropolitan University’s branch in Greece. I am writing a dissertation about Greece as a travel destination and would greatly appreciate it if you can find a few minutes to take my survey.

This survey is intended for those who have and have not been to Greece! No personal data is required. There is a video close to the end of the survey, and it is very important to get your answers for that section.

Thank you in advance!

Took the survey.

I found it a bit odd that you had three categories for nationality. Euro, Brit, and other.
You've missed Asia, Africa, USA, Central America, South America, Middle east

Each segment may have different travel needs, so your description of subject position is not specific enough.

Unless of course you're aiming this campaign at only young brits and europeans.

Your age subject positions are also too small. You can always fold in the age groups once you take the survey, but its good to have clear and distinct primary data.

Otherwise, its a good ad for having fun in Greece for young people.

Thanks for taking the survey! The main population target are the British. European and Other (including the aforementioned) are used for some comparison. The age groups are also set out specifically for my research, where everyone who falls into "26+" or "under 18" are used for comparison.

As I said, it takes little effort to get a more precise age or country area, and you can fold the data into the categories you want very easily.

Meanwhile, if for some odd reason you need to go back and look at another aspect of the research after the results come in, well, you have the more detailed data to work with.

This way, you cripple your post-survey analysis for little reason.

It sort of reminds me of a friend of mine who left an open-ended questionaire at the subjects place of business. When the results came in, he sure wished he had stayed to ask a few probing questions and pin down some definite answers. But the opportunity was lost.,

Agre
0-18
18-26
26-46
46-75
75+

Its only a little more reading, one answer, still.

At this point when you run your analysis software, you 're-code' for
0-18
26+

throw away the subjects in the 18-26 range if you want, as you will anyways.

Usually, when you make such distinct differentiations in an online survey, its to disqualify those who don't meed the criteria, or give different questions to different subject positions.

This doesn't seem to be either one of the two, though it could be the latter, of course. Will have to retake it as a 0-18 year old, eh?

As I said, it is the 0-18 and 26+ that are used for comparison against the main population sample, which is 18-26. So none of the results will be "thrown out" or discarded. Due to the specific nature of my research, it does not matter to me whether somebody is 15 or 17, or 26 or 75. If you do not fall into the main 18-26 categories, then you fall into the "under and over", where this data is used for comparison against the main target data.

Thank you! :)

The holiday plan depends on what experience you are looking for. If its culture and history, then central Greece (Meteora for example), Athens, Crete, and some other places are good. If you want a beach holiday, then the islands :)

I just had a look at your survey and ditched it.

We've been to Greece several times and loved it. I'm not sure my university affiliation/or lack thereof is relevant to travel? I'm offended at being tossed into the irrelevant trash heap of "age 26+".

^Those offenses were committed in just the first page. I answered no further questions on however many pages followed.

It occurs to me that directing this survey at such a narrow demographic will not produce useful or relevant statistical results about travelers who wish to visit Greece.

This survey needs work.

Sophie, I'm sure it will produce valuable information about a certain demographic. Its just that the questions preclude learning any more than they want to hear about.

Ny guess is they're designing travel packages for the 18-26 age group, where fun in the sun, physical adventure, and lots of other kinds of adventure on the offing. That's often the kind of thing that is done in this age group. If its aimed at the differences between europeans, non europeans, and brits, it'll show some differences, no doubt, though I also imagine there are plenty of Spanish youths, Italian youths, etc, that might also share the same needs. But if there is a real cutoff in the 18-35 group, rather than 27, they'll never find out, and so, its collection of data does seem a bit flawed.

Sorry my survey offended you in any way, it was not my intention.

You university affiliation, or lack thereof, is relevant because over 11 UK universities are helping me to promote my survey, and it helps my research to know where the people are coming from.

I have never said that the 26+ is irrelevant.

I'm conducting this survey the way I need to for my research. Knowing nothing about the structure of my research, its hypothesis, objectives, arguments, etcetera, some of you believe its appropriate to criticize it.

I greatly appreciate your help, and every response brings me closer to completing my dissertation. But if you dislike my survey, or if it somehow offends you, why waste your time discussing it here, and giving me advise, which even if I wanted to, is completely inapplicable to my research. I currently have 410 completed responses out of 700 I'm aiming for. I can not change and shift and mend my survey to satisfy every respondent's wants.

Please, do take my word for it that this survey is exactly the way I want it for my particular research. Please do complete it if you have a few extra minutes, as it helps me immensely. Once again, sorry if it offended anyone.
