In today's world, it is no longer debated whether or not to have a website.

It is almost an obligation to have a web page where we show our company, communicate, and allow our future clients to know us.

In the tourism sector as well and although our company is a small tourism venture, the website is more than necessary.

The Internet has become the new medium to search for information.

In the travel sector, people surf the web in search of information about the destination, about hotels, about the activities of the particular attractions that that destination offers, about the means of transport, about the food and many other things.

For many people, the fact that a tourist company is not present in the network creates mistrust or lack of seriousness on the part of the company.

For the entire tourism sector, the website has become the center of the communication mix.
Although companies continue to maintain other communication channels, the online presence is gaining more ground every day.

The website not only allows providing information to the client but also allows making reservations, making payments, downloading the purchase, files, maps, routes, printing vouchers, etc.

European countries such as England, France, Holland, and Germany have been the pioneers in the use of the internet to book a hotel, a flight, or even to buy a tourist package, but in the last two years, online shopping has grown exponentially in the tourism sector.

The most important thing for a tourism website development is to show transparency and security in monetary transactions -if there were any- and also transmit trust to its customers online. These are the only two barriers that, if they fail, could impede the growth of internet users in the tourism sector and especially that of online agencies.
