Also, 53 percent of the participants in the opinion poll said that usually, in order to organize their holidays, they call a tourism agency, and 75.76 percent buy the entire package of services.
For 57 percent of those interviewed, the relationship with the tourism agency and the high quality services are the most important criteria at the moment of the selection of the tourism agency.
„Regardless of the period we are crossing, of the world economic crisis or other events, some things will never change – the period of relaxation we need after a year of work or the time spent with the family during the holidays.
Seen by many as an optional expense maybe, the holiday is the time of the year that is most expected by most people,” said the general manager TravelBiz Simona Veteleanu. The poll was conducted July 15- Aug 15.
