Purchase tickets only from approved travel agencies

Thousands of Kuwaitis are preparing to travel during and after Eid Al-Fitr holidays, which coincide with the summer holidays that extend until the Eid Al-Kabeer holidays. Due to this, travel agencies have been placing advertisements in all information media and social media networks to attract people who intend to travel. Several travel and tour agencies affirmed that most of the travelers from Kuwait head to Arab cities such as Dubai, Lebanon, and Sharm el-Sheikh, while many others are travelling to Saudi Arabia, as they prefer to spend the last ten days of Ramadan in Makkah for spiritual purpose.

They revealed that the travelers are avoiding spending the summer vacation in countries with security problems. However, number of travelers who will spend the summer vacation in the United States of America and European countries, which are cooler with moderate temperatures, has increased tremendously, especially during this period when the country is experiencing record-breaking high temperatures.

Meanwhile, Assistant Undersecretary for Monitoring and Consumer Protection at Ministry of Commerce and Industry Eid Al-Rashidi urged travelers to be cautious by ensuring they purchase tickets only from approved travel agencies and companies. He said the travelers should confirm the operational license of the agencies before booking with them.

Al-Rashidi indicated that the presence of booking offices and travel companies is now widespread on social media, and many of them could be phony. He advised travelers to print out receipts after purchasing tickets in order to enable refund when necessary, affirming that complaints will be received on the hotline number 135 concerning any case of commercial cheating or failure to comply with regulations.
