The analysis is based on a field  survey conducted among tourists visiting the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland.  The results show a positive correlation between visiting more than one  region and the use of private transportation at the destination. In particular,  the two variables are explained by a mixed combination of independent  variables; the transport mode choice of tourists can be well explained by  demographics while destination movement patterns are rather influenced by  trip characteristics. The introduction of activity participation and motivation  increases consistently the fit of the model allowing a better understanding of  tourist behaviour in relation to the spatial extent of the destination visited  and to the transport mode selected. Finally, conclusions are drawn for  policy implications in destination management and transport planning.
