In response to a previously published paper on tourist rights by McCabe and Diekmann, it is argued that the distinction between social and mass tourism is blurred, that the ability to travel rests on existing power structures, and that rights to travel are highly contested. It is suggested, too, that it is necessary to consider the rights of residents in destination areas, that in travelling to destinations tourists also have obligations, and that there are times when the rights of tourists and the rights of residents (and of the state at the destination) may conflict. It is thus necessary to ask what obligations tourists incur, how they should be enforced, and by whom.
