The situation of disputes caused by irregular overseas travel contracts will be improved as China enforces a unified overseas travel contract model and builds up a long-term credit system in 2007.
This is the hope of the China National Tourism Administration, which says the new model of overseas travel contract will be rectified by the China National Tourism Administration and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce.
The unified model will reduce the disputes and traps caused by the troubled waters of irregular travel contracts.
As China has become the biggest overseas travel market in Asia, the number of overseas destinations for Chinese travelers has grown rapidly. But, at the same time, disordered travel contracts have frequently ignited disputes between clients and travel agencies over alterations to lodgings, shopping and extra expenses during travel.
