Most often, negative emotions from a tourist holiday appear through the fault of the tourist himself, due to the fact that he makes common mistakes. At the same time, they are easy to learn and prevent, which we advise you to do.
Mistake number one is concluding a contract with the first company that comes across or using the first tourist offer that comes across. The fact is that, like many other industries in the modern market, the tourism industry is the most competitive environment, where thousands and thousands of companies work. And everyone’s offers are different, some are profitable, others are not, some may suit you, others will turn out to be inconvenient for you in one way or another. Therefore, before deciding to cooperate with a particular company, you should familiarize yourself with the current range of offers on the market. In addition, promiscuity can lead directly into the hands of scammers – their offers are most often designed in such a way as to attract the attention of customers.
Mistake number two – total savings on vacation. The low price of individual tours does not arise out of the blue, always save money at the expense of something. For example, a low price may hide a hotel off the coastline, or it’s a trip to the Dodge season, or there may be other, sometimes very objective factors, such as a low level of service. Always remember that an extremely low price will force you to sacrifice something, and this will affect the quality of your holiday.
Mistake number three – ignoring the contract with the travel company. Many people think that this is a formality and that the travel company will in any case be obliged to provide certain services that you expect from them. In fact, the contract may contain a variety of conditions and clauses that can completely change the range of services, or there may be clauses that indicate that the travel agency disclaims liability in force majeure circumstances. Be sure to study the contract so that there are no unpleasant consequences later.
Mistake number four is ignorance of local laws and customs. This is what most often causes huge problems for tourists on vacation. Each country has its own customs and laws, this is normal, and it is normal that they may differ from what you are used to. In order not to get into an unpleasant situation, it is better to study local traditions ahead of time, this is especially true for eastern countries.
