Romanians are still cautious towards making reservations and payments online for their holidays, according to a recent research.

A report published by online media outlet Romania Insider indicates that, even if Romanians use internet to research holiday destinations, only 28% choose to finalize their online reservation, while 39% prefer to make their reservation over the phone. This occurs over the fear to give their credit card data online, and prefer speaking to a real person over the phone.

Findings also reveal that 3 quarters of Romanian customers trust online reservation websites to find info and read reviews about targeted accommodation units, with a third of respondents saying they visit 4 or 5 such websites, and 11% over 10 such websites. Only 3% visit one single website before making a choice.
