Top travelers and destinations 2019

A new study reveals where the most people travel internationally from, and their top destinations. Mainland China has jumped from No. 7 in 2009 to No. 2 today.

Mastercard’s Special report Global Destination Cities Index: Origins, released today, turns its lens on where international travelers originate. Mainland China has jumped from No. 7 in 2009 to No. 2 today, behind only the United States in terms of the number of travelers to overseas destinations.

Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index: Origins specifically ranks where the most people travel internationally from, and their top destinations.  Globally, the industry contributed a record US$8.8 trillion and 319 million jobs in 2018, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council – and insights like these can help shape local decision-making on how to best attract and serve travellers from around the world.

This year, the United States is the No. 1 origin market followed by mainland China, Germany, the United Kingdom and France. Travel from across Asia-Pacific also surged; the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, which were not in the top 10 a decade ago, rose to No. 6 and No. 10 respectively. The top origin markets are:

  • United States of America
  • Mainland China
  • Germany
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Republic of Korea
  • Japan
  • Canada
  • Russian Federation
  • Taiwan
