Abstract: The introduction of computerized management systems, advertising, distribution and communication brings substantial benefits and induces general changes in the tourist industry. On the one hand, their use is associated with lower costs of supply and selling of tourist products and services. On the other hand, they help do deals between people and organizations regardless of the distance. Increased turnover of ICT (information and communicational technologies) has a great impact on market processes and structures of supply and demand in all travel sectors. It leads to the restructuring of the tourist market and the intensification of competition. The constant urge of tourism companies to develop themselves stimulates the use of constantly evolving software applications. This gives us reason to believe that over the next few decades the development of information technologies will be significant and will be one of the most important markets.
