Abstract | Full Text

User‑Generated Content (UGC) has been acquired significant importance as a decisive factor in the process of purchasing tourism services and products via Internet, as well as the choice of tourist destinations. For this research, it was used the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) to analyze the use of Online Travel Reviews (OTR) as a factor influencing the intention of choosing a travel destination. It is a quantitative and exploratory‑descriptive research with a survey type data collection with 120 people, whose results were analyzed by Structural Equation Modeling with the Partial Least Squares technique. It was found that the use of OTR can influence the intention of choosing a tourist destination for people who plan trips online.
