Complaints made by travelers happen all the time. For some, they simply didn’t know what to expect, for others they were unprepared and for others still, there was nothing they could have done no matter how prepared they were. While some complaints cause no serious damage other than a bit of an irritating experience for you, other complaints are legitimate issues regarding your health and or safety.
Airline Complaints – Commonly dealing with issues such as baggage, delays, cancellations and fees, these complaints may cause you more time and money than actual harm. However, you have rights as a passenger and are entitled to compensation if the airline is in the wrong. For this reason, know your rights to make sure you get what you are entitled to.
Other Transportation Complaints – Many times, the issues relating to this type of complaint are in regards to the fees associated. In areas that you are unfamiliar with outside of the U.S., a common scam is based on taxicabs. For this reason, research common scams in your area and know the common scams you may encounter including taxi cab scams so that you can avoid them.
Car Rentals – The biggest complaints in reference to car rentals aside from cost generally involve travel insurance and whether it is necessary or not. Know what you have and what you need to avoid losing money in case of an accident.
Hotels or Resorts – A common complaint when dealing with hotels, accommodations or resorts is often simply not knowing what is and is not included with your stay, leading to unexpected fees. Make sure you know what is and is not included when travel and avoid this complaint.
Health – Traveler health is another common complaint. This can have serious consequences if it is dealing with health issues that require vaccinations. Make sure if you are traveling abroad, you know what you need to have, what you should avoid and what you can do to stay healthy when you travel to ensure you well being.
