ABSTRACT
The article reports on Holiday Brokers sales director Brian Young's claim that travel agents' liability will be affected by varying content descriptions used by them to sell accommodation. He says that one description of a hotel is used by many agents on their web sites although the same hotel is sold by several bed banks. To avoid liability, Young suggests travel agents to ensure that their hotel descriptions are up to date.
