Using a quantitative research, by the means of a structured questionnaire, and the data analysis using descriptive statistics and T-analysis, the results show that the use of the information sources, the search intensity and the perceived importance of the sources, change according to the period during the vacations. In addition, the importance of those differences for the tourism management is specified.
