How To File A Complaint Against Travel Agencies

Everyone wishes to break free from the mundane and travel to a new destination. Human beings are by nature travelers.

Planning for a trip beforehand is something a lot of travel mongers like to do. This digital age has enabled us to do so. Unfortunately, it has also opened doors for new scammers and frauds who lure customers by offering discounts on their travel budget.

Now, Imagine the number of traveling that is happening per day across the world?  It is really mind boggling, I wonder if it is possible to even quantify. Travel industry is the primary revenue earner for many countries.

What Is The Relevant Course Of Action

  • Contacting your travel agency is an option for you. You can let them know of your grievance and compensation. You may send a Legal Notice to them as well.
  • In case of not getting any positive and satisfying response, it is advisable to file a Complaint against the Travel Agency in the Consumer Court.
  • Many cases usually remain unresolved even after following the course of action. Either the agency refuses to cooperate or they shut out your refund demand.
  • Here, you are required to file a consumer complaint in the Consumer Court. Filing a case in the Court is not an easy task as this requires a lot of detailed paperwork to draft the official complaint along with the follow-ups.  

This is why it is recommendable to be in touch with the platform within the jurisdiction that provides specialised advocate service 24/7. The idea is to seek legal assistance to claim your Consumer Right at the quickest.
