Demand from Brazilian tourists for the United States is high

  • Published by Vedat
In 2012, nearly 1.8 million Brazilians visited the United States and spent more than US$8 billion, making Brazil the sixth largest source of tourists for the region. The number of Brazilians in the country rose 450% in the last ten years.
“Even though the variation of the U.S. dollar, which has appreciated compared to the Brazilian real, raises from 6% to 7% the costs of international traveling for Brazilian tourists, it will not cause a retraction in demand, especially now, during the July vacations,” said Leonel Rossi Jr., VP of International Affairs of ABAV, during the International Pow Wow 2013, held from June 8 to 12 in Las Vegas.

Considering that package tours to the United States sold in Brazil can be paid in up to ten installments, Rossi Jr. believes the impact of the dollar raise on the average price of tours to Disney or cities like New York, Miami, and Orlando will be of nearly R$800—which should not significantly affect the demand from Brazilians for that country.

“The nominal price for stays, and food and beverage in the United States are appealing. There are even hotels that offer rooms with two queen/king size beds, which make it even more affordable for family groups to travel,” he said.
