With the rapid development of the world economy, the popularization of e-commerce and tourism, and the booming of the travel website market, many researchers are interested in emerging websites, and have conducted multiple studies in the areas of attribute selection, trust formation, relationship quality, and services. However, research on tourism website promotion strategies is very rare. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of advertising and e-WOM on consumers’ intention to purchase bundled travel product via travel websites. This study explores the impact of advertising and e-WOM on consumers’ purchase intention, as well as the impact of brand awareness and bundled travel product involvement on consumer purchase intention. The data were collected from consumer questionnaires and was analyzed by using SPSS 23.0 for Frequency Analysis, Reliability Analysis, Exploratory Factor Analysis, Multiple Regression Analysis, and Hierarchical Analysis. The results indicate that advertising and e-WOM have a significant impact on the purchase intention of bundled travel product. Secondly, the website brand awareness has a significant moderating effect. Finally, the relationship between advertising and e-WOM is less pronounced when bundled travel product involvement is high. Considering the nature of travel product, it can be shown that the degree of involvement has no moderating effect on the purchase intention of bundledtravel product.
