Since the beginning of 2005, Dr. Fried & Partner – together with fvw International – has been compiling the "Tourism Sales Climate Index", which tracks the current situation and the overall mood in the travel marketing sector.

With this monthly survey, Dr. Fried & Partner supplies the tourism industry with wide-ranging information which enables it to chart the way ahead and to take the right business decisions.

It provides answers to key questions, such as: What is the present situation as regards the sales and marketing of travel services? How have sales developed over the past two to three months? What is the estimate for demand and earnings for the next six-month period?
The answers to all these queries are provided by our monthly online analysis, which examines the vacation and business travel sectors from the point of view of both inhouse and online sales. The mood at the point of sale is indicated in the form of an index curve based on mean values. You will find all previous results of the Tourism Sales Climate Index on this website.

As an expert in travel distribution we invite you to take part in our 'two-minute survey'. Simply contact us via email ( We will then send you the link to the questionnaire. All participants are granted free access to the site.
