Purchasing via the Internet offers significant cost savings and time benefits to both service providers and
consumers. This study empirically assesses a model of factors likely to affect Intentions to Purchase via
the Internet. A multidimensional scale of Internet Convenience is developed. A sample was used of 759
respondents in Spain who chose to use the traditional method of booking a hotel instead of using the
available Internet option. Results support the proposed hypotheses. Implications are provided for service
providers to address these factors.
