According to the micro-economic theories regarding consumption behaviour, the determinants affecting the joint propensity of purchasing different goods and services are investigated. For this purpose, a copula-based model is suggested. This is in fact a suitable model to understand whether and how different expenditure categories are dependent with each other. A real application drawn from the tourism field is used to illustrate how the proposed approach works and to demonstrate its flexibility. The findings could guide local practitioners and managers in creating new promotional campaigns able to attract visitors willing to pay on a bundle of goods and services correlated with each other.
