Nowadays, travel is such an important part of daily life that it is hard to imagine that the roots of society’s extensive participation in the tourism industry can be traced back to only a few decades. The positive effects of tourismare varied. For tourists, a holiday means satisfaction as travel gives them the opportunity to bring their hopes and dreams to life. Furthermore, by holidaying outside their usual surroundings, tourists increase their knowledge of other cultures and ways of life, be it knowingly or unknowingly. This changed view of things helps to foster greater acceptance and tolerance among the human race. As far as the national economy is concerned, the tourism industry has, in many countries, achieved such a leading position that it counts as one of the most important sources of income and foreign exchange. This growth will continue in the future and will contribute to make tourism the most significant industry in the world. Besides, tourism is, like no other industry, in a position to create prosperity and economic development opportunities even for places that would otherwise be considered as difficult to develop. However, the positive development of the tourism industry is gradually being threatened by negative events. Incidents, which have taken place in the recent past, had economic consequences that were previously unheard of in other economic spheres. According to estimates, the tourismindustry’s profit loss in the wake of the Pan-Amdisaster was between 4 and 7 billion US dollars. In the first 2 months of 1991, the drop in turnover for airlines alone as a result of the Gulf War was estimated at 2 billion US dollars. Terrorist attacks in Egypt also caused tourists to stay away, which meant that, in the space of a year, the revenue from the international tourismindustry for this destination dropped by 1 billion US dollars. But all this was topped by the events of September 11 in the United States of America, which caused not only the worst impact on the worldwide tourismindustry since World War II but also illustrated that those effects were able to trigger a slowdown of the whole world’s economy. This was until now unknown. Nevertheless, these events were not the first ones to affect hard the tourism industry.
