Consumer group says holiday firms may be breaking the law with adverts falsely portraying deals as time-limited bargains
Holiday firms including Virgin, Expedia, Lastminute and Sandals Resorts have been criticised after a Which? investigation into “hurry” deals that the consumer group said duped holidaymakers into paying hundreds of pounds over the odds.
Which? said holiday firms may be breaking the law with adverts portraying a deal as a time-limited bargain “when in fact it is nothing of the sort”. It found that some “sale” deals were frequently the same price after the sale period ended, and some became cheaper.
