Misleading tourist through misleading advertisement of tour packages
I have been in receipt of an email from AUTHENTIC TRAVELS PVT. LTD.
The content of email id are:
BEST DEAL PROMISE : HURRY FEW SEATS ARE AVAILABLE FOR GOA ONLY8000/-PPRETURN AIR-FARE 3NIGHT/4DAYS ONLY AIR-FARE.
Date only : 08TH/NOV/2012 to 11th/NOV/21012
Dear friends the content of the package are misleading in the sense that the package do include only the air fare while the content "3 night/4 days" is to mislead the consumers. First glance at the content would give an idea to the reader that the package include charges for stay for 3 night / 4 days also included in the cost whereas the same in actual is not included. Consumers are advised to seek complete details before initiating any process to avail such packages.The perspective tourist is also advised to engage services of approved agencies/ tour operators approved by Ministry of Tourism. The list of approved tour operators could be verified on the web site of Ministry of Tourism http://tourism.gov.in/TourismDivision/AboutDivision.aspx?Name=Travel%20Trade
This would give a sense of security that you are not cheated by the local untraceable tour operators and you can always lodge your complaint with the Ministry of Tourism.
