DOT PUBLIC ADVISORY ON PROLIFERATION OF NON-ACCREDITED ENTITIES
Recently, various reports have been received by the Department of Tourism on the proliferation of non-accredited entities advertising services in different social media platforms for airline ticketing, travel and tours arrangement, hotel booking, and training offerings for travel business management.
The public is hereby warned to be vigilant in dealing with these entities as there can be no guarantee on the reliability and legitimacy of their products and services.
The DOT wishes to inform that there are only select training centres that are accredited in offering courses for putting up travel agencies and other tourism-related services.
For further information, kindly contact Jose L. Tolentino, DOT Standard Monitoring and Enforcement Division at 459-5200 loc. 216.
