Advent markets start this weekend in the Czech Republic. Before travelling to Czech towns and cities, foreign consumers should read the following practical tips, advice and warnings relating to possible behaviour of some vendors. Beware of pickpockets in some cities and think about benefits of discounted goods.
Some consumers are afraid of losing their money when shopping online abroad. The European Consumer Centre advises to pay with cards or via electronic payment systems because they provide a good level of protection for the consumer.
Visitors to the Czech Republic should take into consideration that a new law became effective ordering shops larger than 200 m2 to be closed on 8 public holidays, starting from October 28, 2016.
Cockroaches under your bed, mould in the bathroom, dirt in the kitchen, and in addition some smell from the back yard of the hotel where a see view was promised – who experienced this, must have grumbled. But that’s not enough. It is necessary to speak up and require remedy or at least a discount from the paid amount. After their return from holidays, some consumers ask how to file a complaint and what is the period for such action.
