Travel websites told tread carefully after Canberra holidaymaker wins Wotif case

Description

The ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal found Wotif had engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct in breach of the Australian Consumer Law, because the website had proclaimed it had “loads of local knowledge” and you could “book with confidence”, and that proved never to be true.

The decision was a reminder to the Expedias of the global world they would have to be careful, University of Canberra consumer law expert Dr Bruce Baer Arnold said.
