On May 25, the Federation Council approved the law on the unified information system “Electronic Voucher”.
The main goals that are planned to be achieved using the “Electronic Voucher” system are consumer protection from unscrupulous company and a guarantee that tour operators will fulfill their obligations to their customers. For example, tourists will be able to track the status of the tour and transfer payments, having the contract number in hand. If a violation is detected, the client will be able to contact Turpomoshch with a receipt for an electronic voucher.
According to RIA Novosti, data on booking and paying for the tourist product will be entered into the system by tour operators. The law also proposes to provide for administrative liability if the tourist product is sold without the formation of an electronic voucher and placing information about it in the system.
