Barcelona, Spain, October 28, 2008 – Vacations and Internet have gone hand in hand since the internet first found its place in many homes around the world. This has completely changed people’s travelling habits and the tourist marketing. Consumers are more demanding as new technologies develop, due to the growth of the tourist offer and the large supply of information available. Now the users can choose what kind of holidays they want, according to their needs and to their wallets. In addition, the low cost airlines have caused a drop in air ticket prices. On the other hand, the tremendous number of accommodation offers that the Internet provides has turned it into the user's favourite tool to reserve their holidays.
Thus, the "self-catering" phenomenon (it is the own consumer who organizes his holidays via Internet and without any intermediaries such as travel agencies) has become the king of marketing tourism. According to a study by the Hosteltur Tourist Forum, up to 90% of the travellers use the Internet to obtain information about their destinations; meanwhile, 70% of the travellers purchase their holidays via the Internet and 68% use it to inform themselves about the accommodation’s offer.
