Ontario Seeking Feedback on Additional Changes to Travel Industry Act
Vacations should be relaxing, and planning one should be too. Ontario has taken steps to help people make informed decisions when booking travel by increasing consumer protection and transparency.
As of January 1, 2017, Ontario travel agents and wholesalers are now required to display the total cost, including all taxes and fees, in any advertisements that include price of travel. All-in pricing reduces confusion and prevents surprises for consumers who purchase travel services in the province, such as all-inclusive vacations.
To help further protect consumers buying travel services and reduce burden on businesses, the government is looking for feedback on possible additional changes to requirements for Ontario travel agents and wholesalers.
