ما هي أفضل عطلة أمضيتها؟

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today we talk about misleading online adverts for travel holidays.

There are sometimes lots of hidden costs that you might have to end up paying to go on holiday without having planned for them in the first place.

This is because travel adverts try to be as appealing as possible by showing beautiful and attractive places in large pictures.

They also use very descriptive language to portray the tourist destinations they are marketing.

And because the application process can be quite complicated, some people might still go ahead and purchase their holiday even after discovering extra costs along the way.

Stephen Dunk the Commercial Director of the Travel Company Travel Zoo a company which sells holidays said that people might see a great offer and start trying to book it. Once they discover they have to pay much more money, they might still pay because they do not want to back down after making an emotional commitment to go.

But there are also concerns over how the prices of airfares are advertised.

George Hobica from airfarewatchdog.com says that low-cost airfares might not turn out to be that cheap at all.

He told the BBC that it would be far better for consumers if the airfares advertised included the taxes involved.

George feels that not including these taxes in the advertised price is deceptive.

To try and protect consumers, a number of bodies advise travellers to carry out some research about the company they are going to use and where they are travelling to.
