Holiday-Hotel-Watch Blog Launched
Have you had a holiday from hell? Was you holiday ruined by illness or poor hygiene standards at your hotel? Do you know about a problem hotel?
Holidaymakers returning from abroad can now post comments and reviews in relation to articles posted on Simpson Millar’s new Holiday Hotel Watch blog.
The blog has been created to provide a place for holidaymakers to comment on issues and have their say on ruined holidays.
Nick Harris, Head of Holiday Travel Law at Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors, said:
“It has become more of a concern to us that web forums where holidaymakers have traditionally posted reviews about their holidays are no longer that impartial.”
“A number of the main forums are now either owned by the major tour operators or the major tour operators have interests which I take the view are unhealthy.”
“Consumers should be presented with unbiased views and opinions whether these are good or bad. The blog will give consumers a place to post honest reviews and comments on hotels mentioned on the blog.”
Nick wants anyone who has been affected by a bad holiday experience to drop him a line or post a comment on the article blog.
“The blog is there for holidaymakers to make use of and to alert other holiday makers to problem hotels and issues that affect travellers generally. The idea is to get as many people engaged as possible.”
“We will be releasing topical issues regularly which we hope will provoke discussion.”
“I would imagine that tour operators and other people or groups involved in travel often visit our websites and an invitation is open to them to contribute.”
“We receive a growing number of emails through our On-Holiday-Claims website, which has many features including advice pages – news articles and a Whistleblower feature through which concerned holiday representatives share their experiences and highlight issues.”
“The blog is the perfect place to discuss topics and to raise concerns – especially those concerning the health and safety of holidaymakers and I hope it will promote some interaction.”
