Budapest, August 26 (MTI) – Fifteen percent of Hungarians find the internet vital for planning their summer holidays, and 8 percent say they cannot do without internet access during that time, business daily Vilaggazdasag said on Wednesday, citing a recent survey by PayPal and GfK.

Just over 40 percent of Hungarian holidayers surfed the net for offers and 63 percent gathered information about the selected site using search engines.

Only 15 percent turned to a travel agency for information about a destination and even fewer (12 percent) said they had asked it either personally or by phone to select one.

The main factor influencing the choice of accommodation is still the price (62 percent), followed by online rating or the experience of friends (33 percent) and internet access (19 percent), the survey showed.
