Does a tourist company need a website?

One of the frequently asked questions - does a tourist company need a website?



Indeed, you can have pages on Facebook or Instagram, be pointed on electronic maps, and it seems like website is not needed. Similarly, if we consider hotels, you can place information on Booking.com or Tripadvisor and also do not have your website.

It is appropriate for some businesses but tourism has its own features.
