Leakages in tourism
The term leakage is used to refer to the amount spent on importing goods and services to meet the needs of tourists.
Leakage occur when the local economy is unable to provide reliable, continuous, competitively prices supply of the required product or service and of a consistent quality to meet the market demand.
How the leakage happens
Of each US$ 100 spent on a vocation tour by a tourism from a developed country, only around US$ 5 actually stays in a developing-country destination’s economy.

Two main ways that leakage occurs
Import leakage
This commonly occurs when tourists demand stands of equipment, food, and other products that the host country cannot supply
Export leakage
Multinational corporations and large foreign business have a substantial share in the import leakage

Example of leakage in tourism
Thousands of tourists go to beach resort in place like Jamaica every year, but those resorts are owned by non-Jamaican an companies. So, the money that tourists spend while in Jamaica goes back to the US or Europe where the resort owners live.
