The paper presents results of two studies concerning tourism of Polish and foreign tourists. Accommodation preferences, needs prioritization, and opinions about tourism services have been researched. The study topic is not present in literature and has a niche character, although a slight upward tendency in the number of people choosing a vegan lifestyle is being observed in Poland and abroad. Studies were carried out in November 2013 (in Poland) and October 2014 (in other countries) with the use of the diagnostic survey method and questionnaire technique (computer-aided web-based interview). Research groups consist of 223 and 115 respondents respectively. Results of the presented studies indicate that for both Polish and foreign vegans the availability of proper room and board is one of the factors determining the holiday choice. Respondents would agree to pay more for a stay in the case it contained vegan board. Both study groups assess the knowledge of hotel, catering, and tourism industry staff about vegans’ needs as insufficient, as well as, the number of resorts providing vegan board. These studies have a pilot character and will be carried out in the future with a bigger number of respondents.
