Abstract

• The study proposes a theoretical model of the determinants predicting actual social media (SM) usage for travel planning. • The model combines theoretical frameworks adapted from the disciplines of marketing, psychology and information systems. • The validation of the model provides a theory-driven framework of factors influencing actual SM usage for travel planning. • The study emphasizes the key relationships among factors and provides a research basis for development in other contexts.
