Travel cost method (TCM) has been developed by Clawson, initially suggested by Hotelling, in order to estimate social benefits from recreation in natural sites.
The method is based on the assumption that the recreational benefits in a specific site can be derived from the demand function, estimated observing users’ behaviour, in relation to the costs sustained by them per number of visits. In other words, the classical model derived from economic theory of consumer behaviour postulates that a consumers' choice is based not only on price but on all sacrifices made to obtain the stream of benefits generated by a good or service. Obviously, if the paid price (p) is the only sacrifice made by consumer, the demand function for a good, with no substitutes, is x = f(p), given his income and preferences.
