Abstract: The objective of this work is to clarify the role of self-congruity, understood as congruity between tourists' self-concept and the image of a destination, in their choice of it. The empirical research finds that the greater the agreement between a destination's image and one's self-concept, the greater the tendency for the tourist to visit that place. Moreover, self-congruity loses this determining power when one has already visited a place. The findings further suggest that the greater the tourist's involvement in leisure tourism, the greater its power to predict destination choice.
