Social tourism provides more and more people access to holiday regardless of age, cultural environment, availability of economic and physical capacity, and is based on the socialization of values, the educational and formative, emotional growth of a person, in connection with the environment. Social tourism then comes from an ethical requirement whose legitimacy is based on a law, the right to tourism, a natural consequence of the right to work and rest, to a paid holiday and holiday. Last but not least, the social tourism sector can be said to carry a humanistic vision of tourism, and represents millions of people, being probably the most promising niche in recent years. Its evolution and development are also related to the new demographic context. In Europe, new opportunities for social tourism have been opened with the enlargement of the European Union. Since 2000, several social tourism programs have appeared and developed in Romania. These are also closely related to the social policies that are taking place at national level.
