Design/methodology/approach: An exploratory, qualitative research approach was followed. Specifically, 77 semi-structured interviews with citizens of the divided island of Cyprus were conducted. Findings: This study identifies several categories of visitors and non-visitors, depicted along a continuum, and concludes that there is a multiplicity of factors in the socio-political environment which influence the travel intentions of people. Originality/value: This study not only imparts insights into the way travel decision-making evolves in politically unstable situations but also serves as a stepping stone towards understanding the conditions under which reconciliation between hostile nations may be encouraged by travel.||URI:||https://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/14359||ISSN:||1660-5373||DOI:||10.1108/TR-11-2018-0159||Rights:||© 2019, Emerald Publishing Limited.||Type:||Article|
