Factors influencing destination choice. -H. Hwang et al. e. ) and attitude towards certain destinations, as well as involvement in the trip-planning process. The structure of an individual’s value system provides the basis for deriving intentions and directing human behaviour. Woodside and Lysonski (1989) argue that personal value systems influence travellers’ destination awareness. In contrast, Um and Crompton (1991) describe personal values as an internal input that initiates the formation of an evoked set from an awareness set.

During the last decade, consumer researchers have been studying these issues from different perspectives. -H. Hwang et al. state called ‘flow’ (Hoffman and Novak, 1996). Dholakia and Bagozzi (2001) exemplify another stream of research by looking at consumer information search on the Internet as a goal-setting and goal-striving process. The concept of ‘flow’ stems from motivational psychology and has been used to denote ‘the episodes when life is heightened, when one is deeply involved and mental energy is highly focused on the activity or experience’ (Csikszentmihalyi, 1990; Kubey and Csikszentmihalyi, 1990).

1990). This can be interpreted as resulting from a greater tendency of experienced travellers to seek variety and, thus, more novel information. This is also in concordance with Vogt and Fesenmaier’s finding (1998) that experienced tourists tend to have higher innovation needs than inexperienced tourists. Understanding travellers’ individual characteristics such as personality and mindset has some significant implications as well. Especially the MSFI model (Dholakia and Bagozzi, 2001) suggests that consumers’ navigation behaviour and its direct consequences can be understood, and potentially modelled, based on a number of psychological and cognitive characteristics, which largely determine the nature of their Web search experience.
