The “disdain” of “the journey” is growing in other countries, where people are “sick of the journey”, according to an article published by the US-based travel website, travelblog.com.
The “reactionary” attitudes of some Western countries are also being used to counter “the rise of the travellers”, the site reports.
In Canada, for instance, many people are more likely to speak out against travellers for “using them as scapegoats”, it says.
“It’s not only a problem in the US, but also in other Western countries, like Australia, New Zealand, and Australia’s own territory, Western Australia,” said Matthew Trew, senior researcher at the travel blog.
“They see the travellers as the problem.”
Mr Trew says people are increasingly “disappointed in” and distrustful of travellers.
“This is a very, very bad time to be a traveller, Mr Trenw said.
In some ways, the “dislike” for the “honest and open-minded traveller” is “a kind of a cult” of the traveller, he added.
A survey by TripAdvisor found that more than half of travellers (54 per cent) had experienced a “very negative” experience with travellers in the past year.
In the US the number of travellers “sadly” has risen to 50 per cent, the site found.
Mr Twrew says that many of the people who speak out about travellers “hate them for their ‘disrespect’ or ‘hatred'”.
Mr Troy said there are “some things that make travellers feel bad about themselves, but there are others that are really bad”.
“And if you weren’t travelling by rail, you’d hate the Australians because they have a very low tolerance for travellers,” he said. “
“These people are not people who love the traveller. “

The website also published an article that said that in many countries “tourism is viewed as an investment”.
“Many tourists don’t think about the environmental impact of travelling,” it said.
