On the road to maintain and achieve performance, travel organizers have to approach a global mentality and take into account the competition existent on the international market. E-tourism or online tourism, is part of ecommerce, presuming the existence of tour operators, tourism agencies, operators in the hospitality industry and other entities in the field of virtual space tourism. Therefore, according to Buhalis e-tourism is the future of tourism industry and is appropriate as a basis for everything tourism will become in perspective, its components being redefined as: eAirlines, eHospitality, eTouroperators, eTravel agencies, eDestinations.
