Summer season

(Continuous report of 2nd quarter of 2015)

(Prague, August 7, 2015) People spend the summer doing what they like, but they are less cautious about how much they pay for goods and services. This fact is misused by various unfair sellers to earn more from such inattention. They bill higher prices, provide less beer or they give you much ice instead of juice. Officers of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority detected similar defects within 33% of inspections during the summer touristic season. “Almost half of detected flaws consisted of breaches of principles of honest sale, particularly in alimentation facilities such as stalls with refreshments at water damps and at swimming pools as well as pubs that are opened throughout the whole year. The most frequent flaw concerning accommodation facilities was the failure to inform about prices of accommodation. During the evaluated period, in total 103 fines amounting to more than 400.000 CZK were imposed, most of them were on-the-spot fines. The summer inspection action focused on tourists and people on vacation will last till the end of September,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
