Reason for trip


The main reason for a trip refers to its purpose or motive. The main reason for a trip could be business, leisure, visiting friends or relatives or a combination of these reasons. The Border Interview Survey examines the main reason for the trip in Finland, not necessarily during the entire trip.

Purpose of visit refers to the motivation of the trip, the reason in the absence of which the trip would not have taken place. If a trip has more than one purpose (e.g. combined business and holiday trip) the main purpose of visit refers to the reason in the absence of which the trip would not have taken place or the given destination would not have been visited.
