The Travel Economic Impact Calculator (TEIC) is an interactive easy-to-use tool that shows the direct impact of a change in traveler spending on a state or destination’s economy.

  • The TEIC was developed for travel professionals and policymakers to understand the economic impact when travel grows or contracts at the national, state or local level.
  • The TEIC enables users to specify a given change in travel spending and see the resulting economic impact.
  • Through the interactive slider, users can quickly estimate the economic impact on travel at the state or local level caused by policy changes, business cycle swings, major events, or any other reason.

Using the TEIC is as simple as 1, 2, 3.

The Travel Economic Impact Calculator (TEIC) for the City-Level, powered by the Destinations Council, is a new tool offering city, local and regional destination marketing organizations the opportunity to understand the economic impact when travel grows or contracts more specifically in their jurisdiction.

A U.S. Travel login is required for access to the TEIC for the City-Level.
