Abstract:It is stated that religion can influence the body, the mind and the social relations of individuals. To provide insight into the influence of religion on the risk perception of an individual this correlational research is performed. To answer the question ‘What affects the risk perception of tourists who are going to a destination which is labeled as high risk location?’, a merged questionnaire measuring the constructs self-efficacy, risk perception and religious commitment, was launched under 96 respondents participated in this study (61 men, 35 women). There was found a negative correlation between religious commitment and self-efficacy. Furthermore, with the use of a regression model the connections among the intention to travel, the self-efficacy and the religious commitment were investigated. The results from the regression analyses turn out to be significant. However, when these analyses are conducted on an individual level, only self-efficacy turns out to be a predictor for the intention to travel. After all, there is no influence from religion on the risk perception of tourists traveling to a destination with a high-risk on terrorism.
