Abstract

Tourism is one of the first services sectors to adapt and use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for promoting its services. ICT enable travelers to access reliable and accurate information, as well as to make reservations in a fraction of the time and the cost. The objective of this work is to measure the impact of ICT on the tourism sector growth. Assuming that the increase of e-tourism sector depends on the increase in tourism demand and internet penetration, we examine the case of all Mediterranean EU member countries, and forecast the growth of online tourism services.
