Domestic tourism is tourism involving residents of one country traveling only within that country.[1] A domestic holiday is a vacation spent in the same country; in British English this may also be called a staycation.

For large countries with limited skill in foreign languages, for example Russia, Brazil, Germany, Spain, and United States, domestic tourism plays a very large role in the total tourism sector.
