4. You think your tour operators have caused damage and loss to your baggage because of their negligence and fault.  

5. Tour operators and the employees take kickbacks and demand tips.

6. The things that you think your tourist operators cheat from you and harm your interest.

7. All other things that you think damage your benefit.

How to complain

Your complaint ought to be written and delivered to "quality inspecting institute" like an appeal. If you have difficult in writing, you may ask the tourist authorities to note down your dictation and sign your name by yourself. However, your complaint should have the following aspects. Otherwise, the Tourism Administration of "quality supervision" can reject your complaint.

1. You should carry out complaint within 60 days from the time when you know or ought to know your benefits have been damaged. You can make a complaint in the local place you are encroached on or return to the place of residence for complaints.

2. You must make it clear who have harmed your interest, such as the traveling agency, the guide, the hotel or all of them. Meanwhile, you should have their exact name written clearly.

3. You are also required to write your concrete complaint requests, such as asking for economic loss, requiring investigating the responsibility for breaking a contract etc. You ought to make sure to call a spade a spade.

4. You must give enough fact evidence for complaint, in other words, the concrete process and pertinent certificate material about your person or property losses should be presented in written form, such as the travel contracts, the loss certificates etc. Therefore, you should collect relevant certificate materials consciously when your benefit is damaged (usually in the journey or in non-local places). Because once you have returned to the departure place, it would be very difficult to gather those materials. It is the key of successful complaint that you must have beneficial and powerful certificate materials in hand.

5. You are also supposed to state clearly in your complaints the following items: your name, gender, nationality, profession, age, the name of the organization you work in and your address.

With the gradual standardization of the domestic tourist market now, the Tourism Bureau has set up "quality monitoring administration" everywhere, which is devoted to the admissibility of the complaint requests of the tourists. You can complain directly to the National Tourism Administration, to the "quality monitoring administration" in your location. Certainly, you can also complain to the local "consumers' association". The following are the telephone numbers of "quality monitoring administration".
