ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the issue of consumer protection related to the travel industry. According to the author, there has been a technological revolution in the travel industry, and the establishment of dot-coms and the Internet have provided consumers with instant availability, prices, videos and customer reviews. However, the author says that there is still lack of consumer protection and lack of clarity for consumers in the industry.
