WE seem to have got our morality skewed on the subject of holiday compensation.
Not long ago, if you had a problem with your accommodation not being as advertised, being filthy or unsuitable or another problem arose, you might try for compensation from the company involved later.
In 2017, apparently, holidaymakers are being routinely encouraged to lie about being taken ill on holiday, especially about food poisoning.
The work by rogue claims’ firms and unscrupulous holidaymakers costs the travel industry millions, but in one holiday destination – Majorca – they’ve had enough. Two Britons suspected of encouraging these untrue claims have been arrested, and the authorities are cracking down.
Good. No-one should profit from lying, especially on an industrial scale. Not only are companies and countries damaged by these false claims but what happens next is that holiday prices start to soar to allow the industry to recoup losses. Then everyone loses.
