Expedia defence ridiculed as OTA giant fined for deceptive conduct

Description

The ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal found Wotif had engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct, in breach of Australian Consumer Law, because the website claimed it possessed “heaps of local knowledge” and that you could “book with confidence”.

University of Canberra consumer law expert Dr Bruce Baer Arnold told the Canberra Times the idea that the internet was free from legal restrictions or only subject to US law was nonsense.
