This summer, 85% of the French are planning to spend their holidays in France. It’s a godsend for those working in the tourist industry, who have just two months in which to make their annual income. But this influx of tourists can also attract unscrupulous salesmen… These days, the majority of tourists travelling abroad book their holidays on the Internet. The prices are attractive and a reservation can be made in just a few minutes. But to whom do they turn when things go wrong? How can they get their money back? On holiday abroad, tourists are the perfect prey for salesmen of all kinds. We meet the people involved in the summer holiday trade, including tourists, hoteliers and shopkeepers, not forgetting those who ensure holidaymakers’ safety, the DGCCRF (the Directorate General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Repression of Fraud).
