Your next holiday - at what price ?
2 recent accidents involving tourists highlight compromise in safety standards in tourism operations.
How could 72 people be allowed to get on an illegal ferry for a tourist trip without being noticed by any public authority?
How is it that a fatal accident occurs on the first day after a two month ban has ended? Were tourism safety standards followed or were they outdated?
While tourism authorities and local administration agencies do need to review their safety regulations and implementation procedures, tourists can ensure they have a safe trip by being better aware of the legality, quality and safety of services they purchase.
- Please check for proper valid licenses and if safety precautions are in place, including the quality of safety equipment.
- Kindly do not patronize any tourism operator or services which do not have regard for safety or security of its customers.
- And when you get a product or package really cheap....think twice!!
