Firstly the reason for the journey is a crucial element to travel as if there was no reason for traveling then a person simply would not do the journey. Reasons for travel can be classed as for work, pleasure, holiday or visiting family and friends.
The distance of travel is another important element and can determine what form of transport would be taken to complete the journey. If it is a short journey then a person would have several options of travel such as walking, cycling, driving or by train. Whereas if it was a long distance and even overseas then the choices would be narrowed to air travel or by boat.
Starting point and final destination of a journey can be another element of travel and is fundamental to successfully completing a journey. Many people will first check how far it is to the destination and will also plan the route if they are to go by car.
Forms of transport are also a crucial element to travel and as mentioned before the other factors can contribute to what form of transport is selected. Forms of transport include walking, cycling, driving, taxi, train, plane and ferry. Many journeys can consist of a variety of transport being used, such as taking a taxi to the airport before flying to their destination.
