Cornflakes, Cars and Tourism.

Mar 4th, 2011 | By

This morning the Dept for Culture & Oddities issued its 52 page document on its plans for tourism. These will affect all of us that holiday, take day trips or visit friends because tourism is so involved in what we do. Go to shops outside your local community? That contributes to tourism. Use the roads or trains? That affects tourism. Eat cornflakes? Well no, that doesn’t affect tourism but they are mentioned in the report.
So how will this affect you?

Scrapping Hotel Star Ratings

Hoteliers and just about everyone else in tourism thinks that the Department of Culture & Oddities will withdraw funding from the star scheme, the way that hotels have been independently judged for decades in England.. the rest of the UK is unaffected. The consensus seems to be that review and, to an extent comparison sites, have taken on that task. Why should the government continue to put money in it when private industry is doing the task goes the story.
