What does the term FIT mean?


Here at Cashel Travel the term or acronym FIT stands for Foreign Independent Traveler, but it isn’t necessarily the same in other organisations. Some people or companies refer to it as a Fully Independent Traveler, Frequent Independent Traveler, Free Independent Tourist, Frequent Individual Traveler and we’re sure there are many more. But as you can see, they’re all very much the same thing.

The term FIT was coined within the DMC sector and it refers to an individual tourist or traveller that’s independent from groups or a specified schedule. They normally design or have most of the control over their itinerary. As a result FIT travelers generally have a higher average spend.
