We’ve highlighted complaints received about hotels, cruise ships and aircraft through our Call to Arms feature. We’ve written extensively about the risks of travel and its effect on travel insurance. And we’ve told the holidaymaker’s story responsibly by simply concentrating on the experience. This has all formed part of a wider campaign to bring safety and quality to holiday travel. Our Map Alerts allow you to locate our articles easily, in order to make more informed travel choices or to find other holidaymakers with similar holiday issues.
