He also called for more effective combating the illegal sale of fraudulent excursions and services sold to tourists by unlicensed companies or even on the street by individuals.
June 3, 2022. - The President of ACAVE, Jordi Martí, has participated this morning as a representative of the travel agency sector in the Commission for the Study of the Police Model of the Parliament of Catalonia, where he has exposed the point of view of the sector on key issues related to the safety of tourists and the image projected from the city abroad. In fact, he commented that receptive travel agencies “know firsthand the security and public order problems that tourists encounter during their stay in Catalonia and that directly affect the international tourist image of Catalonia and of its various destinations, as well as all the companies that we dedicate to the tourist activity. In addition, as companies that carry out our activity in Catalonia, we see how we are also the direct object of crimes, whether they are robberies in our facilities or cybercrimes, which have been growing in recent years”.
